DIY Giant Mother’s Day Card

DIY Giant Mother's Day Card @themerrythought Only 5 days left until Mother’s Day! And it’s not too late to make one of these fun, giant cards for mom or grandma. It’s an easy project for the kids to help out with and costs about $5! Order your print today and you can whip one of these up in time for Mother’s Day!
DIY Giant Mother's Day Card @themerrythought What you need:
Engineer Print Photo (They cost $3 from Staples)
-Poster Board (3 black pieces, 1 white piece)
-Glue/Rubber Cement
-Hole Punch
DIY Giant Mother's Day Card @themerrythought How to make it:
-Paste your print onto the white poster board. (Be sure not to use too much glue.) Trim off any of the print that overlaps the poster board. Then cut about 1″ off from the sides and 1″ from the bottom.
-Take one piece of poster board and fold 2″ down along one of the long sides. Glue this small flap to the top of another piece of poster board.
-Cut a triangle out of the top of the remaining piece of poster board and lay it on top of the one you glued the flap to. Glue the bottom together and let dry.
-Use the hole punch to punch 18 holes up the sides and thread your yarn through it. Tying it on the backside at the beginning and end.
-Fold the flap down and cut a triangle… so it looks like an envelope. 😉
-Paint a message on the front of the envelope, slide the photo inside, and send it on to mom or grandma!

    Love the large photo print! When I clicked on the link though, it said the engineer print isn’t suitable for photos–is that the one you ordered or is there an engineer print just for photos?ReplyCancel

      Yeah, that’s the one I ordered. I think they just say that because doesn’t print crystal clear and the photos have to be black and white but it’s still quite good for the size and price.ReplyCancel
