For this tulip card, we have prepared a handy little template for you that you can print out on colored paper and use immediately, or print out on white paper and use as a template.

This is a wonderful Mother’s Day craft idea: just print out the template on colored paper and let the kids make their own Mother’s Day cards.

As a spin-off of this idea, you can even make some larger tulips (or have your class make them) and use them on your springtime corkboard.

Tulips really are a beautiful flower and one of our favorite floral crafts.

*You can make them in all the colors of the rainbow and beyond, and we’re sure each and every one will look stunning.

How to make a DIY 3D Tulip Card for Mother’s Day

What do you need

  • our printable template (you will get it at the end of the tutorial)
  • card background
  • colored paper
  • green paper

How to create the base of the map

We make ours by cutting a sheet of letter or A4 sized colored paper or construction paper in half. Then each half is folded in half. Fold the crease to make it super neat.

As a template we will use our tulip flower template, which you can also print directly onto colored paper (quicker and easier). It all depends on what you want your kids to do: if tracing the shape is beneficial, using it as a template is a good option.

You can also skip the pattern and let the kids cut their own tulip flowers.

*Using it as a template, trace the flower (several times).

*Cut out your flower.

*You need a good amount of flowers: the more you make, the fuller the tulip will be. 6-10 is a big number. Younger kids can use less, while older kids can go a little crazy with the number and see what they prefer.

*You need to fold all the flowers in half. You can fold them all at once, hold them all together and line them up.
