Mother's Day Surprise Greeting Card - standing open cardI had seen this on the internet long ago. I don't have the exact details and materials to be used, but I made my own version based on what I could recall.

I find this project amazing and best used for the upcoming Mother's Day and my mom's birthday celebration as well. It is just like a simple kid's school activity and you could share or make it with them as part of their fun craft activity. Besides, little ones sometimes have better ideas.

Supplies:

  • 1/2 of 8.5 x 14 inch cardboard paper
  • cardboard paper strip at 4cm x 19cm
  • cardboard paper strip at 4cm x 10cm
  • art paper in assorted colors cut into heart shapes
  • ruler
  • pen
  • markers
  • scissors
  • glue

  1. Get the long paper strip (4cm x 19cm). Fold the strip leaving a small allowance on the tip, making one side shorter than the other.
  2. Mother's Day Surprise Greeting Card - fold long strip with one side longer than the other

  3. Draw lines on the short side of the strip with .5cm spacing. In my project, I have seven colors so I drew 13 lines beginning from the fold.

  5. Fold the paper, following the lines, in alternate directions so it look likes this.

  7. Now put glue on the upper tip (only) at the back of your heart shapes. Stick them onto each of the lines with one space in between each heart. It will look like layers of hearts in different colors.
