DIY- Paper flower basket cards

My sister is joining us today with a very cute and simple diy for Mother's day or any day for that matter. I think they look great as place cards but also as cards. 

Hello everyone, it is so nice to be back!  In some parts of the world Mother's Day is coming very soon and a while back my sister and I had a conversation on how as kids get older they stop making gifts for their mothers. My sister has the perfect example because of my nephews' age difference. While the little one brings home paintings and plasticine keepsakes, the 'teenager' one is barely reminded at school of this very important day.

This is a very simple do-it-yourself that can be done with the kids, even the little ones.

The idea came to me while my sister was coming up with last week's paper flowers diy, I thought it would be fun to make a small basket of flowers were you can write notes in, or poems or just words of affection! They're perfect as place cards for a mother's day brunch or dinner, or as cards to be given or mailed.



What you'll need:


  • scissors
  • paper
  • pens
  • washi tape, glue or thread
  • circle puncher not necessary but helpful

First cut all the circles. Then grab which ever colors you want for the basket and glue or sew them (as in the first picture) together leaving enough space to fit all the little flowers. Folding one of the circles a bit higher than half. This will be the basket and the little flap helps it stay up.

For the flowers you'll just have to fold in half, fold once more and if you want a skinnier flower you can always fold again. The note, poem or words of affection will go inside every flower or just one and it can be a surprise!




I hope you get inspired to make your own version of these baskets. They're really easy and they look so beautiful at the dinning table. Of course they can be done for any occasion but I'm pretty sure your mom and my mom will love it!!!

I'll be contributing from time to time so I'm very excited and I really hope you enjoy it too! 

Have a wonderful day!

Giannina.
