Mother’s Day Matchbox Bouquets DIY

I like to give (or send) all my mom friends a little something special on Mother’s Day, because let’s face it, being a mom, however wonderful, is not the easiest job in the world. This little matchbox bouquet is just a sweet (and inexpensive) way to say thank you for being a friend, fellow mom! Thanks for listening, teaching, inspiring, supporting, helping and just plain being there! Happy Mother’s Day!

Materials needed: 2″ x 1 1/2″ matchboxes, plain and decorative papers, miniature flowers, scissors, pen, clear tape.

Step 1: Empty out matches. Cut out a paper rectangle approx. 4 1/4″ x 2 1/8″. Hold the paper against the matchbox and cut along the edge to trim to fit. Write A BOUQUET FOR YOU on the front of the box, or on plain paper or a sticker if you are using decorative paper. You could also print out A BOUQUET FOR YOU, making sure you can fit it on the top of the 2″ x 2 1/2″ paper. Print it out with plenty of room to be able to center the words and wrap the box.
Step 2: Wrap the rectangle around the matchbox. Tape one end to the matchbox, wrap around, and tape the other side down. Use your fingernails to get a sharp crease on the edges.
Step 3: Fill the matchbox with mini flowers. Attach a tiny strip of paper (either handwritten or printed) that exclaims, “Happy Mother’s Day!”
