DIY Mothers Day Card; Flower Pot

 Happy Friday!

I'm home at my parents house for the weekend. 
Got lots to do between packing for the cruise and getting things together for my graduation!

Anyway, I have a DIY for a cute Mothers Day card. 
It's a flower pot card, and I got the idea off of Pinterest but designed it the way I liked it, and thought about it. :)

You will need:
  • Scrapbook paper (got a bunch from my best friend)
  • Scissors
  • Embellishments
  • Glue
  • Patience (haha)
 What you will be making:

 I put two pieces of scrapbook paper together(facing opposite of each other) and cute my border. The top part is cut un-proportional because of the top of the pot will appear larger.

I didn't have any special cutting scissors, just did it by hand. Glued it to the top of the pot. Also, glue around the edges of your card. The inside is where the message will go. I just used basic elmers glue from wal-mart. :)

 I cut out yellow and the top part I made bigger so I had room to add my flowers to something.

See? The yellow piece goes inside the card.

 I hand drew different size flowers and glued them onto the yellow piece. This is what took the most time. And placement. You can also add leaves to it too. I added and glued ribbon too. This will also help your card from falling apart
