Make this gorgeous greeting card to do just that; fill it with words of affection before sending it to moms near and far. Better yet, it makes for a one-of-a-kind flower delivery: The flat card blooms into a three-dimensional arrangement that's much more unexpected than a vase of roses. It looks intricate, but with our petal template, step-by-step instructions, a few snippets paper, and some cleverly placed tape, you'll quickly realize just how easy it is to recreate. What You'll Need Materials Text-weight paper Double-sided tape Petal Template Cardstock paper Glue stick Instructions Cut seven 4-inch squares of paper in desired colors. Fold a square into quarters. Fold-down one flap diagonally; flip the square of paper over and fold down the other flap, forming a triangle as shown. Print petal template; trace it onto the triangle, and cut out. Unfold, and cut one petal from the flower; close the gap by overlapping petals on either side and securing with a glue stick. Repeat with other squares. Attach pieces of double-sided tape to the petals, as indicated by dots. Start sticking flowers to one another: Flowers B and C each overlap a petal with A; then flower D goes on top, completely overlapping A. Attach flowers E and F to the stack to overlap B and C. Attach G to the top, overlapping D. Cut out some freehand leaves from green paper, place double-sided tape on the bottom, and attach them to the flowers. Cut a piece of card stock into a 10-by-6-inch rectangle, and fold it in half to form a card. Place the folded flower stack inside of the opened card as shown. Place a piece of double-sided tape as shown; close card, and press firmly to adhere. Open the card and repeat, attaching the other side of the flower stack to the inside of the card.
