We love all the colors spring brings! Oh and the flowers!

These stick flowers crafts are perfect for Valentine’s Day (the heart shape is incredibly versatile) or as a Mother’s Day gift for kids.

They are quite easy to make and have a wonderful appeal when opened and revealed the message inside.

If you are doing this project with younger children, we recommend using large craft sticks and making larger heart shaped flowers as they will be easier to cut. Older children can easily make small flowers.

Step by step instructions

Paint the craft sticks green. Let the paint dry.

Fold floral colored cardstock (red, pink, and purple work really well).

Draw a heart shape so that the top of the heart touches the fold (this is important).

Cut out the heart shape but be careful not to cut the fold at the top of the heart (the two raised parts). This will make the heart open and close like a card.

Cut a smaller heart shape from yellow paper (you can redraw the first heart shape and cut it out a little to make a smaller one).
