Paper Flowers for Mom
Creating gifts for moms is such a joy, especially for Mother's Day. These paper flowers are fun to make and can be used as a standalone gift or added to something else as a decoration.
Decorative paper (you can cut pictures out of magazines or use recycled greeting cards)
Mod Podge craft glue and brush
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue
Buttons (try the Laura Kelly Collection from Buttons Galore)
To make your flowers, cut out petals in the sizes you want and cut out circles for the centers. Assemble your flowers and paint Mod Podge over them on the front and back to make them stiff and durable. You can tape the centers together before using the Mod Podge to make it easier. Add the centers, seal with the Mod Podge, then let them dry.
The flowers dry best sitting atop a jar or a glass. When they are dry, use tacky glue to adhere buttons to the centers.
