Mother’s Day: Patty Case Flower

March 7, 2012

Mother’s Day is coming up and if you’re looking for an easy craft to do with kids, this patty case flower, with a milk bottle lid centre, is super sweet.


3 Patty case pans (different colours)

Paddle Pop Stick

Leaf template (click to print the PDF file)

Photo (of child/mother or child can colour a small piece of paper)

Milk Bottle Lid

Green texter

Craft Glue

1. Trim around 2 of the patty cases (one should be smaller than the other) so you end up with 3 different sizes.

2. Colour the paddle pop stick with green texter.

3. Cut around a leaf from the template (use one or two).

4. Insert a picture of mum or the child (about a 20 cent piece size), or a coloured piece of paper with a message, into the milk bottle lid.

5. Assemble with craft glue as per the picture below.

  • Child can write a message inside the centre and give to a friend/parent

Such a simple and sweet craft activity.

That’s an incredibly cute craft! I might have to get the boys to make some for their teachers and grandmas.

Is it okay to say that with Mother’s Day coming up I am hoping someone else will get the kids to make me a patty case flower??? x

BAHA! Absolutely. I thought of that too. When I wrote this post, I actualy worded the first line carefully -> “easy craft to do with kids” rather than “your kids” for this very reason. hehe.
