  4. Cut some short lengths of ribbon to join each framed picture to each other. Cut one longer length of ribbon that will be added at the top as a hanging loop.
  5. Turn the pictures over, making sure they are laid out the correct way up and in the order you want them and glue the attaching ribbons and top hanging loop in place.Three Easy Mother's Day Gifts to Make for Kids #easy #mothersday #gift #kids #craft

How to Make

  1. Paint the outside of the egg cartons in a variety of bright colours, leave to dry.
  2. Place your card tube on a sheet of coloured card, I used the corrugated card to get some added texture, mark the height and trim to size.

  3. Roll the card around the tube to measure the correct length, mark and trim to size.

  5. Once the first layer of paint on the egg cartons dries, paint the insides of the cartons and leave to dry.
  6. Cut some leaf shapes into green card, leaving a tab at the base end of each leaf.

  7. Fold the tabs on each leave round the pipe cleaner stems and glue into place, leave to dry.

  8. Once everything is dry use a pencil to poke a small hole in the centre of each egg carton flower.
  9. Thread the pipe cleaner approximately 2cm into each egg carton and fold down to loosely secure into place.

  10. Put a liberal amount of glue into the centre of each flower, covering the folded pipe cleaner, drop a pom pom centre in and leave to dry.

  11. Once dry pop your completed flowers into the vase, if you find they are a bit heavy you can weight the base of the tube with modelling clay by pushing it round the bottom of the tube.

How to Make

  1. Fold 1 A4 piece of felt into three, like it is a letter.

  2. Make a mark on each side of each fold, to keep your fold points, or pop a pin in.

  3. On the top third measure up 3cm from the fold point on each side and mark, then from the top centre draw a straight line down to each mark. Cut along these lines to make the flap.

  4. Now you need to fold the bottom third up, to create the pouch. Stitch both sides, removing any pins if you used them.

  5. Now you want to fold down the top flap and mark where the point lies, this is where you will stitch on the button.

  6. Choose a large button and sew to your purse.

  7. For the final stage you want to make a loop of ribbon, large enough to go round the button and attach it to the top flap. Use more ribbon then you think you will need and loop it round the button first, to check the size and position. Stitch in place and tie a bow to hide the stitches.
