It is a good idea to make some paper flowers for your mom on Mother’s Day.

You can make them with recycle papers like egg cartons, newspapers or old books.

You can also make them with coffee filter, cupcake liner, tissue rolls, tissues and paper plates.

You can make a bunch of flowers, a card with flowers on them, a flower tiara or gift wrapping with flowers for your mother.

Below are simple but pretty ideas that age 7-12 kids can make.

1. Egg carton

1.1   These tulips are so pretty! It is clever to use buttons to decorate the centres of the tulips. Using a long tissue roll as the vase is also a great idea!

1.2   I myself love Daisy so much. Purple is also my favorite color. Love this!

1.3   Simple to make roses
