Mother’s Day is around the corner and handmade Mother’s Day cards are one of the most special gifts you can give mom! We love this personalized Mother’s Day Butterfly Art because it’s personalized with your child’s photo.

The symbol of butterfly kisses and the butterflies forming a heart is also symbolic of a mother’s love for a child and vice versa. Plus butterfly art in general is so pretty. 

This not only makes a gorgeous card but you could also place it in  shadow box and hang up as art for years to come!

Do I need a butterfly punch to make this this butterfly card?

You can always look up a template of a tiny butterfly or make one of your own, if you’re into tracing and cutting out many different butterflies! It’s entirely up to you.

We just love our butterfly punch it makes it so easy and uniform to punch out many at once! It’s a great tool for fine motor skills too.
