Watercolor Mother's Day Cards

Here's an easy way to make beautiful Mother's Day cards for Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma out of old, watercolor art work:

1. Locate your children's old watercolor paintings or practice sheets. Or, create a new water color painting on an 11 x 17 piece of watercolor paper. Make it simple, like 2-3 bands of color.

2. Fold the art work in half, then half again.

3. Glue or glue stick to keep the insides together.

4. Trim, if needed.

5. With a pen, have the kids write a poem, draw a simple picture and sign their names!
