Mothers sure do love flowers! Here is a simple and precious Mother’s Day keepsake that will stay colorful all-year long.

You will need: Colored construction paper, glue, family photos, scissors, green pipe cleaners


  • Cut several flower patterns out of construction paper.
  • Cut photos into circles to be used as the center of the flowers.
  • Glue a photo to the middle of each flower.
  • Glue a green pipe cleaner to the back of each flower.
  • Tie the ‘stems’ of all the flowers together with a ribbon.
  • Glue to a piece of construction paper and decorate.
  • Write “Happy Mother’s Day!” on the top.
  • Optional: Use patterned paper (scrapbook, wrapping paper, etc.) instead of plain construction paper to make the flower petals.

Don’t forget about your Mother’s Day Celebrations on May 10th and 11th, 2012! Create cards, invitation and gifts for your visitors, as well as planned activities and snacks for this special holiday.
