Here are 14 happy mother’s day DIY card ideas that you can make to congratulate your mother on this mother’s day.

1. Bag-shaped card

The making of a bag-shaped card seems more difficult than it really is. You have to take a card, fold it and cut it to give it a bag shape. Then it is decorated with drawings, paintings, small objects (like pebbles, buttons, etc.) or whatever you prefer. The interior is free to write a congratulatory message.

2. Card with flowers

This is a simple but very attractive concept: a card composed of a flower folded twice, like a triptych, so that the front is like a double-leaf door. The stem of the flowers is behind that “door”, but the flowers protrude from the top. You can also tie both leaves of the door through a small cord, which adds beauty to the whole, and include a message for the mother inside the card.

3. Scratch card

This is also very original and simple to do with children: a scratch card so that the message of congratulation for the mother is hidden and she herself has to find it. You have to write the message on the card and then cover the cardboard with transparent adhesive plastic. A mixture of paint, liquid soap, and glitter will be placed on this plastic. It is allowed to dry and the card will be ready for the mother to scratch with any coin.

4. A card in the form of an Internet search engine

This card is very simple and, without a doubt, original. It is proposed to make a card of the simplest form, that is, folding it into two equal parts, in such a way that there is a cover and an interior part. The original is what has to be stuck on the cover: you have to access the homepage of a search engine, such as Google, and write in the search box “the best mom in the world.” Inside, the card can include a photo of the mother or a phrase.


5. Heart card

After trimming and folding properly, you can make a card in three dimensions, in the shape of the heart, which can be decorated and completed with a congratulatory message inside.
