What says ‘I love you, Mum’ more than a pretty handmade card? One that springs open to reveal a beautiful bunch of ‘flowers’, that’s what. With just some coloured card and double-sided tape, it’s beautifully simple to make too. She’ll be tickled pink.

In the past, your mum would probably have grounded you for scribbling on her cups with nail polish, but these beauties are sure to win her over. The hardest part will be convincing her you didn’t buy them in a posh kitchenware store. Just make sure you buy your own plain cups for this project. We’re pretty sure Mum still won’t really appreciate you ‘prettifying’ her vintage tea set, no matter how lovely the results.
