HOW TO MAKE FLOWERS OUT OF CUPCAKE LINERS

WHO CREATED MOTHER’S DAY?

The official Mother’s Day holiday began in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis. After her mother’s death, Anna created Mother’s Day as a way of honoring the sacrifices mothers made for their children. She wanted to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed a mother is “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”.

Honor your Mom this Mother’s Day with a homemade paper flower craft. Let’s get started!
