Mothers Day Cards with Plastic Bottle Stamped Flowers

Mom will love beautiful homemade cards from the kids this Mother’s Day. We’ve got some really fun ideas including these topiary cards with dried flowers, painted swirly flower cards, and scratch-off date with mom cards. Below we show you how to make stamped plastic bottle flowers for homemade Mother’s Day cards too. Kids will have so much fun making these for mom.

What I love about these cards is that no two flowers will be the same. Kids can mix and match paint colors, to make beautiful multi-colored petals.

Fold your card stock in half.

Using the paintbrush, paint the bottom of your plastic bottle. You can use just one color, or use a variety of colors. Notice how each flower looks completely different as you blend colors together. You can wash your bottle if you want to between brushing on paint, but we just kept blending more colors as we made each new flower.

Stamp the bottle onto the front of your folded card. Repaint, and then repeat to make three pretty flowers.
