Add Ribbon and Finish Card

Cut a strip of ribbon the width of the front of the card. Use hot glue to adhere to the card.

To create bow tie, cut a strip of ribbon, loop both sides and adhere both ends in the center (overlapping), using hot glue. Cut a short length of ribbon to wrap around the looped ribbon for the center of the bow and secure with hot glue. Use hot glue to attach the finished bow tie to the ribbon strip on the front of the card. Then, add a personal Mother's Day message and present to Mom.
