Project #59 Handkerchief Mother’s Day Card
I know I’m not the only Mummy who loves handmade cards from her children. They’re so sweet that it seems a shame to tuck them away in a drawer for safe keeping. A handkerchief card is the perfect way for your children to create something special that can be used all year round.
Place the lined paper underneath your handkerchief, making sure the lines are visible through the fabric. You’ll use this as a guide to keep your message straight.
Take a stencil containing the alphabet and spell out your message using fabric paint. (Note: Fabric paints with a fine tip are great for little hands. Be sure to wait for each letter to dry before commencing the next to avoid smudging.)
Once your message is written, use stencils to create pictures on the handkerchief.
Write your name at the base of the handkerchief for a personal touch.
