Pretty Mothers Day flower craft with free printable
Of course, you don’t have to use the tissue paper technique. The Mother’s Day card can also be decorated with colouring pencils, paints or any decoration your children like to use.
The Mother’s Day card can be printed from the Art Printables section of NurtureStore’s Free Printables Library. See below for detail on how to join the Library.

:: bleeding tissue paper* cut into small pieces
:: paint brush
* It’s essential that you use the right tissue paper for this project. Much of the tissue paper sold for gift wrapping is colour-fast. That’s great for gift-giving and packaging, where you don’t want any colour transfer, but not what we need here. For this art project be sure to buy bleeding tissue paper.
Print the Mother’s Day printable onto card and set it out with the tissue paper pieces, water, and a paintbrush.
To print with the tissue paper, first use a paint brush to apply water only to the petals of the flower on the printable – not to the surrounding areas.
Lay pieces of tissue paper over the flower. Choose your mother’s favourite colours.
You might like to add a little more water on to the top of the tissue paper but take care to only apply it where the petals are.
Then leave the card on a flat surface to dry.
Once dry, carefully peel off the tissue paper pieces to reveal the colour transfer prints below.
Don’t forget to sign your name and lots of kisses on the bottom of the card.
