9. Button picture. 

Mother’s Day is a special day to honor the wonderful women in our lives who have nurtured and cared for us. What better way to express your gratitude than with a handcrafted button picture? This craft is simple and enjoyable for people of all ages, and it’s a great way to use up any extra buttons you might have lying around. To begin, gather your materials, which should include a piece of cardstock or heavy-duty paper, scissors, glue, and a variety of colorful buttons. Once you’ve gathered all of your materials, sketch out your design on paper. When you’re satisfied with the arrangement, glue the buttons in place and set the picture aside to dry.

10. Flower made of tissue paper. 

Mother’s Day is a special day to honor the women who gave birth to us. Giving your mother a tissue paper flower is one way to show her how much you care. Tissue paper flowers are simple to make and can be customized to any color or size you want. Begin by cutting a square of tissue paper to create a tissue paper flower. Fold the paper in half, then again in half. Cut the folded paper into a petal shape, starting at one corner and working your way to the center. Unfold the paper to reveal a stack of four identical petals. Repeat with additional sheets of tissue paper until you have enough petals for your flower. To assemble the flower, stack the petals on top of each other and slightly curl the edges. When all of the petals are in place, gather them in the center and tie them together with a piece of string or ribbon. Your tissue paper flower is finally completed! On Mother’s Day, give it to your mother as a symbol of your love and appreciation.
