  • White marker
  • UHU Glue


How To Make

As simple as the supplies, the making of this Mother’s Day Card From Scrap Fabric is also very simple. It’s a no sew fabric project so this Mother’s Day Card for Mother’s Day is a super easy DIY. Your would only need glue to do this fabric card! Anyway, let me share how I make this scrap fabric mother’s Day card.

  1. Take an old table calendar and cut off the cardboard stand. I used a 5.5 x 8 inches cardboard as the card. My card is in black color which I think it’s a good contrast to the fabric flower.
  2. My fabric came from a sleeve of an old dress I’ve upcycled. So I cut the fabric in ring connected ribbon. Cut the scrap fabric into 4 different widths from the biggest to the smallest. It’s around 2.1 inches width to the smallest around 1 inch. I didn’t measure it when I cut it, I just used my proportion instinct.
  3. Apply some glue on the middle above card and glue the fabric into a wavy circle. do the same until the four fabric ribbon glued together. Remember to start from the biggest width fabric to the smallest. Let it dry.
  4. Now it’s time for the writing job. Write “Happy Mother’s Day” below the fabric flower on the card by using white marker. Let it dry.
  5. And you can write anything you’d like at the back of the Mother’s Day card.


Tips : The card should contrast the fabric flower, so if the card is dark, use a light color fabric. And if your card is light color, use dark fabric. For black and white card, you can use any contrast color, but for other colors card, you should choose a same shade of the card and the fabric to get a best result. For example, dark blue card with a light blue fabric. Another thing is, you can substitute the scrap fabric with ribbon if you don’t have any scrap fabric.

A beautiful gift for your wonderful mom would be an unforgettable day to your mom if you pair it with an handmade Mother’s Day card. Very personal, loving gesture to be translated into this Mother’s Day Card From Scrap Fabric. Want to try? Good luck and add some creativity to it!
