It's no good buying a card, you know... home-made cards are always more popular.You will need:
Step 2: cut out some flowers in another colour. You could make them different sizes or different colours... use your imagination!
- Thin coloured card - two or three A4 size sheets is plenty.
- Sticky tape
- Crayons, felt tip pens or paint.
Step 3: stick a flower onto the end of each strip of paper.
This picture shows you what you should end up with after step 3.Step 4: curl the card around with the flowers facing inwards and stick the two sides of the card together, so you end up with a cylindrical shape.It should look a bit like the one in this photo.
Step 5: now curl down the flowers carefully, so that they all droop outwards - and look just like flowers in a pot.
You could adapt this by making the card slightly bigger, and turning it into an Easter bonnet, or by putting a small pot of real flowers into the centre of it, as an extra surprise.
You could stick a base onto the card, making it into a pot, and fill it with pot pourri (that smelly stuff that mums and grandmas really love) or yummy chocolates.
We left our card quite plain, but you could decorate yours: stick glitter onto it, colour in the flowers, draw designs on the pot, glue scraps of material around the pot or stick a sign on it with the name of the person you're giving it to - it's up to you.
Whatever you do with it, they will love it, we guarantee it.
Happy Easter from Show Me!
