If your mom is the champion of scrabble, Jeopardy, and Wheel of Fortune, we have a feeling this card is going to be a winner on Mother's Day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Blank flat card
Scrabble pieces (or any other lettered pieces)

Start with a blank, flat card. The card stock should be pretty thick in order to stand up to the weight of the Scrabble pieces.
We used six different patterns of Washi tape, but you can use more or less depending on the look you’re after and what you already have on hand. Stretch the first piece of tape across the top of the card. The ends can go over the sides of the card, but don’t press them down on the back of the card—you’ll trim them at the end.
Take the next piece of tape and place it directly below the first strip, so they’re touching. Continue layering your tape, one below the other, until you have completely covered the card.
Trim the edges of the tape with a scissor. Align your scissor with the edge of the card and trim with a steady hand. Definitely don’t rush this step—clean lines will really make a difference here.
Before you add your letters, pen a sweet note to your mom on the back of the card. Use a pen with ink that coordinates with the color scheme on the front of your card.
Next, find a spot to add the letters. We chose to put “MOM” just above the center of the card. Once you are pleased with the positioning, put a dot of glue on the back of each piece.
