DIY Tulip Card for Kids

Spring is coming and there is no better time to craft a DIY Tulip card for kids! You can use this as a Mother’s Day card or an Anniversary card! It can also be used as a Tulip Birthday card. In fact you can send it to someone to brighten up their day or send Get Well Soon greetings!

3D Tulip Cards

This beautiful card craft features an array of different colored pop up tulips. Tulips always remind me of Spring and the fact that brighter sunnier days are on their way!!

They are very bright colored flowers that stand out and they make a beautiful gift for someone who loves flowers! As we all know tulips come in lots of different colors and my craft reflects this. 

Kids like to make cards for Mum for her Birthday and Mother’s Day. A 3D Tulip card craft is the best idea as this type of paper flower never wilts and can be kept as a keepsake forever. 

If you love making your own cards and want to make something similar then why not try my tulip flower pop up card

I have two kids and I know for a fact they would want to make me a different card so it is good to have a similar idea!
