This one is fun for kids and adults alike. Get out your camera and take some candid shots of your kids goofing off. I have one where four of my grandsons got into a mud fight in the back yard. They were just covered in mud from the heads to the feet. It was running off them in rivers. This is the photo I am going to help them make into a card for their mom's this Mother's day. Go to your local Walgreens and have a copy made of the picture.




  1. Fold the paper in half like you would for a card. Cut a hole in the front. It does not have to be square get creative. I plan on making ours with a puddle shape for the opening. Just make it so that when you are done with the hole, your picture can be completely seen.
  2. Now let the kids decorate them with flowers and hearts or anything their little hearts desire. The inside can be lettered with "World's Greatest Mom", "I Love You", or be a little sneaky and use a poem off the internet.

Remember to have the kids sign it.

Hope this gives you a great idea for your mom.

Calling all kids, this one is for you. A card that Mom can hang as a picture.

Approximate Time:



  1. I used handmade paper for the backing and torn the edges for interest. Cut your top paper two inches narrower and 2 1/2 inches shorter than your backing paper. I suggest 6 x 9 inches for the top paper and 8 x 11 1/2 inches for the back.
  2. Glue the two together.
  3. Using the pattern provided or draw your own, cut out the stems and leaves.
  4. Ad

  5. Print out your pictures. If you need more than three you will need to make your card larger or your pictures smaller than two inches, which is what mine are.
  6. To make your photo fit the bottom of your cupcake liner, simply cut one of the bottoms out and use it for a pattern. Cut your photo slightly smaller than this pattern.
  7. Once you have all of your pieces, assemble your picture and begin to glue them in place, starting with off centering your front piece of paper toward the top so it leaves room to write at the bottom.
  8. To make the flower pot, gather a short piece of lace and glue it in place at the top with a button.
  9. Ad

  10. If you want your lace to stand up put glue around the sides of the container and use the painter's tape to hold the lace up until the glue dries while you work on the buttons.
  11. Sew the buttons on over your ribbon for strength if you plan on hanging your card.
  12. Ad

  13. Write Mother, Mom or whatever you choose at the bottom and you are done.
