Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I have some stunning gift ideas that you can easily make yourself with paper flowers.  A few weeks ago, I shared some inspiring large scale flower backdrops and if you love these giant paper flowers, you can see that post – HERE

To make smaller paper flowers, you can use paper punches or metal dies to cut them in a cutting machine, such as a Sizzix Big Shot or a Cricut Cuttlebug.

However, if you don’t have a cutting machine and all the metal dies, paper and equipment – you can absolutely short cut some paper flower gifts by visiting my craft shop and order already cut flowers that you can easily assemble and add them to anything.

Stop by my shop for a variety of paper flowers here – READY SET CRAFT KITS

Below are several creative gift ideas you can make with paper flowers for your mother for Mother’s Day.

A beautiful handmade Mother’s Day card with 3-D flowers added on the front.

A paper flower wreath to hang on a door or wall inside the home.

A flower decorated birdhouse.

A flower monogram letter.

Instead of paper flowers, how about paper succulents as a table centerpiece.

A simple flower notebook and pin – perfect for a grocery list pad or a to do list notebook.

Framed wall art featuring handmade paper flowers will make your mother smile every day.

A flower bouquet that will never wilt would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift too!

Stop by all my shops for all your event decorating needs-

Paper Flowers At Your Next Event

I am in LOVE with paper flowers right now and all the amazing decorations that can be created with them at weddings, parties and all kinds of events.  Check out this stunning paper flower backdrop above created with lots of sizes and styles of these handmade flowers.

I’m actually getting ready to add lots of new paper flower kits in my Etsy craft shop- READY SET CRAFT KITS in the next two weeks!  Like all the flowers shown here –

Right now I am just offering the 12 inch size Dahlia flower (pointed petals shown in gold) and the much smaller 3.5 inch flowers (shown in dark plum with the yellow center) but I’ll be offering all these styles and sizes very soon!

How clever is this set up for a unicorn party!  A large scale unicorn backdrop was created behind the party table and it makes such a big statement, no other party background decor is needed!

These big flowers make an amazing statement in the home too as wall decor.

The smaller size flowers are perfect for adding to gift boxes, favor bags, napkin rings and so many more ideas for using them at your next event!

They look great on TULLE BALLOONS too as a nice finishing touch and I even offer this as an add on item in my shop for all my balloons!

I love this clever idea too- a row of small flowers added on top of crepe paper on the back of chairs.

So many creative crafty ideas with rolled flowers too – like making flower covered wood cut shapes or letter monograms as art for the home.

Even adding paper flowers to a frame and creating a quick art display or gift for a friend is beautiful.

Hoop art is trending right now too and the paper flowers would look stunning on a wood or metal hoop and so easy to make these hanging hoop wreaths!

No matter where you use them at your next event, they will make an amazing statement at your next celebration.

Stop by my craft shop soon for my paper flower styles coming soon – READY SET CRAFT KITS
