Step 1: Supplies
Supplies you will need:
-Colored Paper (I have a variety of colors shown, even though I used a few colors.)
-Scissors and an X-Acto Knife
-Markers (I'm using scented markers. It adds more fun!)
-Plastic Stencil (oval shape for the egg)
-Flower Hole Punch
Step 2: Folding and Cutting the Paper
I will be using light purple and light yellow for my card. Fold both the purple and the yellow paper exactly in half.
Now take your yellow paper that's folded in half and cut a piece of the top off. (It's okay if the line you cut isn't perfect.)
Next, put the yellow piece on the outside of the purple card so it's like the purple card is inside the small yellow card.
Use the glue stick so the yellow stays glued on.
Step 3: Adding Decorations
It's time to add some ribbon and decorations!
Glue on the ribbon where the purple and yellow paper meet on the card.
Use the flower hole punch to punch out a flower with light pink paper, also write Happy Easter on the front of your card with a marker.
Step 4: Making the Egg & Finishing
To make the egg for inside the card, use an oval shaped stencil and trace it with a marker. Cut along the line you traced.
Use different colored markers to decorate the egg you just cut out. Cut a small piece of paper out, and fold it like a zig zag pattern. Then simply glue the zig zag piece of paper to the egg you cut out and decorated, and then glue it to the inside of the card. The zig zag paper will make the egg pop up a little bit from the card.
Now it's time to write a message in your card. This is what I wrote inside my card : Happy Easter! I hope you have an eggs-ellent Easter!
Also I drew a flower inside my card. That's it! You are done!
Happy Easter! :)
