Easter Cards to make:

This Crafty Easter Card Tutorial is perfect for anybody looking to get hands on with and creative with their children.

You Will Need:

  • Card
  • Coloured paper, cut into squares slightly bigger than you want your finished honeycomb section to be (you’ll need about 15-20 squares)
  • Pen
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue (PVA)
  • Needle and thread

Instructions:

  1. Draw a circle on a piece of paper, and measure 5 vertical equidistant lines, with the 3rd line passing through the centre. Label these lines:  A, B A, B, A (or 1, 2, 1, 2, 1).
  2. Cut out another circle of card the same size and put aside for later.
  3. Take your paper, and place it on top of the circle, marking the corners so you know where each sheet should be positioned, ensuring that you can still see the lines (and labels) projecting above the top edge of the paper.
  4. Place a line of glue along each A line, on the paper, and stick your next sheet of paper on top.
  5. Next place a line of glue along the B lines and place a 3rd sheet of paper on top.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until your paper is used up.
  7. Glue the entire surface of the card circle and stick to the paper stack. Leave to dry.
  8. Cut across the circle, perpendicular to the glue lines, and the cut the papers to match the semi-circular edges.
  9. Turn the semicircles over, so you have the paper side facing you, and put them on top of your original template (remember to position the cut horizontally).
  10. Put glue down the B lines of the top half of the circle and flip the bottom half up to stick it on, leaving you with one semicircle.
  11. Using the needle and thread, pierce the corner of the semicircle, and make a loop (leave it loose to that your honeycomb has enough room to open out) and knot. Repeat at the other corner.
  12. Leave to dry thoroughly and then stick to your chosen card. You can cut out some cute Easter pictures – such as a chick and a bunny – and used one honeycomb for a pull-out tummy, and one, which I trimmed into more of a semi-oval, like an egg. Make sure to continue any design onto the visible side of your honeycomb when it is closed.

Easter Wishes Card

You Will Need:

  • Square Card Blank
  • Pale Yellow Card
  • Spring Time Paper Pack
  • Wooden Chick Topper
  • Mini Paper Flowers
  • PVA
  • Craft Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Metal Ruler
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Use a craft knife and metal ruler to cut a square of pretty Spring Time paper to the same measurements as your blank card. Glue this to the front of your blank card.
  2. Take the sheet of pale yellow card and draw around a circular object. Cut out, position and glue in place at the centre of the card.
  3. Stick a wooden chick topper to the centre of the circle.
  4. Arrange and glue mini paper flowers around the edge of the card circle.

You Will Need:

  • white card stock
  • scissors
  • crayons
  • watercolours
  • coloured card stock
  • glue sticks

Instructions:

  1. Cut the white card stock in half so that you have two 5.5 x 8-inch pieces. (Each piece will make one card.) 
  • Fold the paper in half and cut out a half oval shape by cutting two quarter circles. Don’t cut the oval all the way through. To make the shape more egg like cut the bottom quarter circle a little more rounded and the top quarter circle slightly pointed. 
  • Open the card. Use the crease on the oval to fold the egg shape away from the original fold. 
  • The card will have an egg shape which “pops” out of the inside when opened. 
  • Colour the shape and decorate the card with crayon. 
  • Afterwards watercolour on top of the parts which were coloured with the crayon. 
  • Have fun with it, think of different ways to decorate the eggs (just like when you’re dying real eggs!)
  • After the paint dries glue the white piece of card stock into a colourful piece of card stock with the glue stick. It works best if the coloured card stock is cut to the same size (5.5 x 8.) when glueing, don’t put any glue on the back of the egg cut out.
