Button Card

You will need:



Patterned Paper




  1. Fold the card in half.
  2. Decorate by glueing buttons onto the front of the card and using the patterned paper and pens to draw pictures.

More Ideas: Use the buttons as candies and add the details. Arrange the buttons like flower petals and make a flower. Make shapes like hearts or stars out of buttons.


Handmade Card

You will need:

  2. Place your hand on the card with your thumb and forefinger on the fold. Your hand should be placed so that once opened it will look like a heart.
  3. Draw around your hand.
  4. Cut it out.
  5. Unfold the card, write your message and decorate.

Your salt scrub should last around 3- 4 months.


Felt Heart Decorations

Give your mother a heart to take with her everywhere.

You will need:



Needle and thread


Ribbon or key chain


  1. Cut two identical hearts out of the felt. You can add extra decorations like buttons or sequins at this stage.
