“What are you doing for Mother’s Day?”
Every year, you might send something to your mom on Mother’s Day, like flowers.
If you want to show gratitude to your mom with a bright and beautiful bouquet of carnations, why not try making them on your own?
According to ProFlowers.com, carnations mean “fascination, distinction, and love.”
You can see why carnations are the official flower of Mother’s Day by looking at those words, but more over, what’s even better is that you can hand craft it just by using tissue paper and make them last forever!
What you will need:
- Colored tissue paper (in color you want as flower)
- A strip of green tissue paper (about 20 inches)
- Glue (optional)
- Light red -> admiration
- Dark red -> deeper sentiments of love and affection
- White -> purity and luck
- Pink -> sign of gratitude
