Directions to make the Flower Handprint Craft
First Cut out the pieces for the craft
- Handprint: Trace the child’s hand on a cardstock paper of your choice colour and cut it out.
- Card base: Cut an A4 size sheet in half to make it an A5 size.
- Flowerpot: Cut a trapezium shape out of brown craft paper.
- Green rectangles: Cut 2 green rectangles for leaves.
To easily cut leaves for crafts, follow these steps:
- Fold the rectangular piece of green paper in half along the longer side, creating a crease in the centre.
- Using scissors, cut a curve along the folded edge.
- When you unfold the paper, you’ll have beautiful leaves with natural folds at the centre.
These cut-out leaves can now be used to enhance your crafts and add a touch of nature to your creations.
Next, let’s Make the flower using the handprint and a straw. Cut the straw at the centre and press the ends. Use white tape to attach it to the handprint. The flower is now ready!
Decorate the flower pot and write the Mother’s Day wish on it.
Apply glue to three sides of the flower pot and paste it on the card, leaving the top side open for inserting and removing the flower.
Finally, add the leaves on either side of the straw. The handprint flowers are now ready! These adorable crafts make wonderful gifts for moms.
