Mother's Day Cards to Make
Make Mama smile with a card that will melt her heart. Let her know how you feel and how much you appreciate everything that she does for you with a sweet little note. Write a poem for Mother's Day, thank her for everything, or just simply say, "I love you," to make the special lady in your life happier than ever before. Think of all of the little notes that Grandma leaves you that make you smile, and write one just like that back to her. These heartfelt cards are even more meaningful when the outside is handmade. Use your old crayons to melt a heart that will wow Auntie. She will forever wonder how you made the card look so beautiful.
This funky card is really easy and inexpensive to make, and it will make a huge impression on the recipient. If you don't want to make a heart, make another shape that means something to the lovely woman who deserves this card and so much more. If you can only make Mom one thing for her special day, create a card that will drop her jaw and put happy tears in her eyes. For the woman who has never missed a soccer game, make the most special gift that you can.
