Homemade Origami Mothers Day Card

Homemade Mothers Day Card

In an effort to avoid that awful plastic wrapping you get with most shop bought mothers day cards I’ve started making my own. Personally I wouldn’t mind not getting a card as long as there was some gesture of appreciation, but I think my mum would be heartbroken if she didn’t so this is for her.

I found this tutorial for a pretty origami dress online and teamed it with some cute patterned card that I’ve had stashed for years. I tried a few tutorials and this was the one i thought was the easiest. The tutorial is for paper so my card was a little bit stiff, which made it a bit tricky so I decided to hide its imperfections with daisy edging from a ribbon – also from the stash!

Happy Mothers day to all the mothers out there.
