African Violets for Mom

This Mother's Day, treat all the moms in your life -- your friends, sisters, and grandmothers -- to a little something special ("little" being the operative word).


These petite African violets are long-lived, easy to care for, and inexpensive. Tuck the pots into pleated baking cups, and add personalized tags to dress them up as gifts.


  • Potted African violets
  • Pleated baking cups
  • Tag clip art
  • Card stock
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Skewer or wooden coffee stirrer


  1. Step 1

    Print our tag clip art onto card stock.

  2. Step 2


    Cut out, and glue to a skewer or a wooden coffee stirrer.
