Handkerchief Mother’s Day Card by Khali from Little. Lovely.

I know I’m not the only Mummy who loves handmade cards from her children. They’re so sweet that it seems a shame to tuck them away in a drawer for safe keeping. A handkerchief card is the perfect way for your children to create something special that can be used all year round.

You’ll need:
*Handkerchief
*Lined paper
*Fabric paint
*Stencils

Step one:
Place the lined paper underneath your handkerchief, making sure the lines are visible through the fabric. You’ll use this as a guide to keep your message straight.
Step two:
Take a stencil containing the alphabet and spell out your message using fabric paint. (Note: Fabric paints with a fine tip are great for little hands. Be sure to wait for each letter to dry before commencing the next to avoid smudging.)
Step three:
Once your message is written, use stencils to create pictures on the handkerchief.
Step four:
Write your name at the base of the handkerchief for a personal touch.
