What You'll Need

1 Assemble your materials!

Gather together your pen, plastic, card, glue stick, and our free stencil.

2 Trace the Stencil

Print out the free stencil and trace the words and the flowers. You might want to use different color plastic for the followers or the typography, it depends on the style you are trying to achieve. You can also buy a card and use your 3D pen to embellish certain aspects, making the artwork pop out with your creative touch!

3 Add Details

After you've finished doodling, it's time for more details. Using different colors of plastic, add a few pops of color throughout the flower design - making them look even more real.

4 Flowers That Come Off The Page

While the plastic is still warm and malleable, move the tips of the flower petals so they pop out a bit. This will help give your card depth and create a 3D effect when the design dries.

5 Attach your Doodles and finish the card

When your Doodles have cooled it's time to attach them to the card. Using a glue stick or double-sided tape stick the flat side of the Doodles to the front or inside of the card. Press and hold the Doodle in place until the glue has dried. Now pat yourself on the back for going the extra mile to make mom feel special this Mother's Day.
