How to make it

Mother's Day Tulip Card step 1

1. Print out pattern and trace on the pattern placed over yellow card stock. Once you lift the pattern, you will see indentations from the tracing. Cut around the entire pattern to cut out the flower.

5. From the scraps of yellow card stock, cut two identical leaf shapes. Glue the leaf shapes, sandwiching the chenille between them.

6. Using the photo as a guide, use a craft knife or a toothpick to poke two holes into each of the flower flaps (do not poke through to the layer your message is written on). Run the loose ends of the ribbon through either hole on the bottom flap. Open the card, insert the ribbon into the two holes and pull through. Close the right side flap. Insert the ends of the ribbon into the holes of the left flap and pull taught. Tie a bow on the front of the card. Trim ends.
