Mother's Day Badge

Ready to make an easy mother's Day badge with crepe paper?
It only takes about 2 minutes and your kids will have fun making them.

One 42" piece of crepe paper
One 5" piece of crepe paper cut as shown below
One paper circle
Glue Dots®
Marker or pen
Step 1. Start at the end of the 42" crepe paper strip and begin folding small pleats. They should be slightly angled so they fan out as shown below. Make sure to hold the folds tight so they don't come undone. This will form into a circle.
Step 2. While still pinching the pleats in place use your free hand to place a few Glue Dots® (or 1 Large Glue Dot®) in the center of the crepe paper circle.

Step 3. Firmly press your paper circle on the Glue Dots®.
Step 4. Using Glue Dots® attach the 5" crepe paper strip to the back of the badge and attach.

Step 5. Personalize the badge with a marker or pen.

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® Design Team.
