Handprint Tulip Card for Mother's Day

For Mother's Day this year, we used our hands to make tulips. (These look more like tulips if you hold your fingers together-but I was working w/ a 3 and 1 year old ;)) This is very simple to do. *Cover your workspace, and the children's clothing. *Using a sponge brush, paint the children's hand with paint. *Press their hand evenly onto the paper and lift up evenly. *Add stems and grass. *Presto-done! Handprint tulips for Mom! :)

Very cute idea. I think we will give this a try.

Why did I buy a card from Target again? These tulips are so much cuter.

I think I am going to steal this idea and use it tomorrow with my kids. I am sure Grandmas will enjoy a homemade card so much more than something purchased.

Man am I glad I checked your blog before going out and buying a card. This is a fabulous idea. We have a project for tomorrow. Thanks!
