I was born on Mother’s Day, which falls on the second Sunday each year (you’ll have to like my Facebook Page to find out when my birthday is this year). My mother always encouraged me to make handmade gifts. I have to admit that I don’t always make time to do this, but this year I did make my mother a pop-up flower card for mother’s day, and I got it in the mail to arrive on time!

I’m teaching a workshop this Mother’s Day (Sunday) at the Alpine Arts Center here in Edwards, Colorado. We’ll be making pop-up paper flowers and cards. I hope to see moms, dads and children working in harmony.

We’ll be making some of these pop-up flowers in the workshop, and I made the purple flower card for my mom. I found this project on Robert Sabuda’s website. His work is featured in the gallery section of Playing With Pop-Ups and you can find the instructions for making this card on his website.¬†

Happy Mother’s Day and happy making!

Do you have a favorite Mother’s Day tradition?
