Decorating for Easter is always so fun and creative, because nothing is more meaningful than something made by yourself. With a little time, you can make lovely and awesome DIY Easter cards for your family and friends. This lovely DIY egg card will spread good vibes and impress your family and friends in a unique way. You will need:
- scrapbook paper (white, patterned and solid color),
Easter Ideas - Easy Easter Egg Cards DIY
First cut the two oval pieces, one of white paper or cardboard (this one going to be a base for the card) and one of patterned paper.
Cut patterned piece ones again, this time horizontally (make sure that you have enough space to place the chicken later). This is going to be a top part of the card.
Use a solid color scrapbook paper to cut a long strip for the decorative opening. Cut it in half horizontally with a pattern scissors.
Glue bottom (bigger) part of oval patterned paper on white paper, but don`t glue it all the way to the top (you need a little gap to insert the chicken later). On top of the that glue long strip of paper - bottom part.
Position top patterned part on top part of white paper (don`t glue that part) just to find perfect spot for top part of long strip. Make sure that top and bottom of long strip matches each other perfectly. Glue long stripe on top part and trim the excess. Aline two top parts and punch a hole on the left corner, add a ribbon and make a bow. Now your top patterned part can move up and down and close the card. You are almost done. :)
Now it time to make a chicken. Use yellow scrapbook paper to cut the chicken body and wing.
Glue the wing to the body, color the eye with a black sharpie and nib with the orange, and then glue chicken on the middle of white part of the card.
Be sure to push it inside of a bottom piece (just a little) -(that`s why you didn`t glue bottom part all the way to the top).
For the decorative part, make a small flower and glue it next to the ribbon. I used small pearl to make it even more festive.
Print Easter note and make a small banner. Glue banner on the right side of your card, left a lovely note on the back and you are done! How cute is that!!
