Materials used

Step-by-step instructions

Grab your scissors and start cutting out shapes from your template.

Step 1


After cutting the pieces, use a pencil to draw them on paper the same color as the body.

Step 2

Use a pencil to continue the drawing process on the yellow paper.

Step 3

Next, use a pencil to draw shapes on the blue paper.

Step 4

Take your pink paper and draw shoes and dress with a pencil.

Step 5

Start drawing small circles with a pencil on the white paper.

You can also skip drawing this shape since you printed it on white paper.

Assemble the character pieces, add the body to the face and the hair to the head.

Step 8

Glue the white circle for the eyes to the face.

Step 9

Add shirt to body.

Step 10

Glue the skirt and legs to the character.

Step 11

Apply some glue to the pink shoes and attach them to the bottom of the feet.

Step 12

Glue one hand to the back of the body and one hand to the front.

Be careful not to apply all the glue to the hand first – you only need to apply the glue to the shoulder as our character will be holding a balloon.

Step 13

Take your marker and draw eyes, eyelashes, and a smile on the character’s face.

Step 14

Apply a little eyeshadow to your cheeks to make them blush.

Step 15

Balloon heart

Write cute Mother’s Day greetings on pink hearts.

Step 16

Add glue to the back of your character.

Step 17

Place the character on the purple paper.

Step 18

Cut some of your twine.

Step 19

Attach the string to the back of the pink heart.

Step 20

Glue the heart shape to the purple paper, above the character and off to the right.

Step 21

Place the string between his hands, making it look like your character is holding a balloon.

Step 22

Add a little glue to secure it in place.

Step 23

Press down firmly with two fingers.

Step 24

Tie a piece of your twine into a bow.

Step 25

Glue it underneath the pink heart, trimming the edges of the twine.

Step 26

And now you have a beautiful, bright and colorful homemade card to give to someone special for Mother’s Day.

Step 27

Is this the cutest card you’ve ever laid eyes on?

Step 28

The best part about it? It’s homemade!
