Note: This project can also be used for mom, aunts, etc.
OK, gather these items first:
1. Brightly colored card stock (make sure to include green for stems)
2. White card stock
3. A pencil & markers
4. pieces of twine or yarn (I heart twine) cut long enough to make a bow (one for each bouquet)
5. Glue (liquid is better with glitter)
6. Glitter (I used silver, but you can use an color you have on hand)
7. The poem...It's the best part...don't forget it!
This is how I put it together....First I drew a tulip on a piece of card stock & cut it out. Then used that tulip to trace all the other tulips onto different card stock colors (I have 4 kids in my homeschool so I had to make LOTS of tulip heads!)
Once you've traced them all, you can cut them out or have the kids do it themselves!
I Love the bright colors! (sorry the pic is dim...let me know if you need a better example)
Now you need some stems for those gorgeous Tulips, So grab your green card stock and just start cutting stripes...the kiddos can do this too. P.S. they don't have to be perfect, but the easiest way is to cut horizontally so they won't be too long hang off your white card stock sheet
Now Lay out your white card stock vertically and glue JUST THE TOP HALF of the stems onto it. Once you have your stems in place set out your tulip heads & glue them any way you like em'.
Take about a 7 inch piece of twine and tie the bottom of the stems together & make a bow (like tying a shoe). Place a dime size glue-glob onto the knot of the tie (twine is known for coming loose, this will keep it sturdy longer).
Next, trace the tulips with the glue & sprinkle glitter all over until satisfied. Lastly, top it off with the cutest poem with colorful markers that will make the heart smile!
And to all my "Teacher Momma's"....HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
