Fabric-Punched Mother's Day Card
Send homemade greetings to Mom with a Mother's Day card full of lifelike blooms made from petal- and leaf-shaped craft punches.
Select lightweight fabrics, such as voile or Indian cotton, and craft punches in any of several dozen petal shapes. Follow these instructions to make the card.
- Lightweight fabrics, such as voile or Indian cotton
- Tray Medium paintbrush
- Liquid fabric stiffener, at crafts stores
- Petal and leaf craft punches
- Craft glue
- Paper or blank premade cards
Begin by punching fabric flowers: Lay a piece of fabric in a shallow tray. With a paintbrush, apply enough fabric stiffener to saturate, but not soak, the fabric. Let it dry, about 1 hour. Repeat with any remaining fabric.
Using craft punches, punch out petals and leaves as close together on the fabric as possible.
Glue just the centers of leaves and flowers to a card, so their tips curl upward. Draw stems and a message by hand.
