1. “Nailing It” Card
Place the mini nail polish bottle on the front of the card, then use a ruler and a pencil to draw a rectangle about ½-inch outside the bottle. Using a craft knife, cut out the rectangle. Attach the bottle to the bottom sheet of paper using foam adhesive dots. Write “You’re NAILING this whole mom thing” on the front of the card.
2. “She’s a Gem” Card
Place a sparkly gem on the front of the card and use a ruler and pencil to trace a shape about ½-inch outside of it. Cut out the shape with a craft knife, then attach the gem to the bottom sheet of paper using foam adhesive dots. Write “You’re a Gem” on the front of the card.
3. “You’re the Balm” Card
Remove the cap from a sphere lip balm, place it on the card, and trace around it. Using a craft knife, cut out a circle that’s ¼-inch smaller than the one you just drew. Take two cupcake wrappers and flatten them out. Using the hole you just cut as a guide, trace a circle in the center of both wrappers and cut out. To form the flower, place the bottom part of the lip balm under the hole cut in the card, add the cupcake wrappers, and then screw on the top of the lip gloss so that the cupcake wrapper petals are sandwiched in between. Write “Mom, you’re the balm,” in a contrasting color pen.
4. Sew Lovely Card
Write “Mom, you’re a cut above... love you sew much” on the front of the card. Using craft glue or foam adhesive dots, attach mini scissors and a tiny spool of thread (borrowed from a travel mending kit). Note: Mending kit scissors tend to be dull, but for extra safety, wrap the blades in silver tape before attaching to the card.
5. Cute-as-a-Button Card
Write “Moms are like buttons... they hold everything together” on the front of the card. Use craft glue to adhere some spare buttons.
