Craft Pom Poms come in different sizes from 1/2 inch to 2 inch size. We got a bag of them from Craftprojectideas.com. Thank you Craftprojectideas.com! We made the birthday card with Pom poms and pipe cleaner. When we were in India, CJ and my niece used the tiny and the medium size pom poms to create cards for my elder brother.
The card is simple to make and can also be made for Mother's Day. I gave them the bag of Pom poms and let them play around to create the card. CJ asked me to help but my niece said she will come up with her own creation. So I suggested CJ to create a flower design. She made the below card. CJ also wrote the words, "Happy Birthday Mama" MAMA is maternal uncle in Tamil - our native language(mother tongue).
The below card is my niece's creativity, she glued the pom poms in random. Isn't that cute.
The pom pom creatures with two tiny pom pom eyes, gave me the idea to create the cute little chicken.
