Today I’m going to show you how to create a simple home made Mother’s Day card. The card says “I Love You” in sign language on the front.
Step 1: Fold a piece of white construction paper in half and set aside.
Step 2: Take a piece of colored construction paper (I prefer pink) and trace your hand.
Step 3: Cut out the hand figure.
Step 4: Erase any pencil marks.
Step 5: Turn hand over (this is now the front of the hand) and fold down the middle and ring fingers.
Step 6: Write I Love You on the hand in pencil and then trace with a marker.
Step 7: Tape your hand to the folded white paper along the long side.
Step 8: Tape the middle and ring fingers.
Step 9: The front of the card is complete!
Step 10: Now write a message inside the card in pencil and then trace with a marker (remember to erase stray pencil marks).
Step 11: Don’t forget to put the date or year in the bottom corner!
