Do-it-yourself volume greeting card with flowers

Crafts for Mother's Day, as well as crafts for March 8, with their simplicity should evoke in mothers a sincere feeling of joy and admiration for the work of their child. What can be more pleasant than to experience pride, mixed with emotion and delight, in your day?

A volumetric card with flowers will be a good solution for such holidays. You can do it with your own hands from colored foam rubber (foamiran) and plain cardboard.

Do-it-yourself postcard with colors

A sheet of cardboard of A4 format will need to be folded in half, and in one of the halves in large letters to write the most cherished words: "I love you." We take pastel-colored cardboard (pale yellow or beige). If the child is small, his first, albeit uneven, letters will look cute. For older children, as well as for those who still do not know how to write,You can print the inscription on the printer or cut out from an old magazine or postcard.
