How to make a simple handmade card for Easter.

Handmade Cards
It may have been simple to make, but I still think it looks cute and like it took some effort and thought. Let me show you what I did, so you can make your own simple Easter card.
Handmade Cards
Supplies:
  • Card base (I buy mine at Michael’s or you can make your own)
  • Textured scrapbook paper
  • Egg shape cut out of cardstock (2 per card)
  • Ribbon (I got mine at the dollar spot at Target and used 2, to make 3 cards)
  • Adhesive
  • Foam squares (adhesive)

Start with one of the egg shapes that you cut out of cardstock. I cut mine on my Cricut, but you could easily (if you cut better than I do) cut them out by hand.
To add the ribbon, I found it easiest to run my adhesive down a section of the front of the card, about 4 or 5 lines side by side. Adhere the ribbon to that section of the egg.

Once you have the ribbon adhered to the front of the card and trimmed, turn the egg over. Use your adhesive to ‘glue’ the ribbon to the back of the card. I found working in sections was the easiest way to accomplish this.

After a few minutes, I had an egg shape covered by cute Easter and spring ribbons.

After a few minutes, a problem started to happen. A lot of the ribbons started to come undone. I didn’t want this to happen once I mailed the cards, so I had to come up with a solution.

I cut out a second egg shape and adhered it to the back of my ribbon covered egg. That way it would hold those ribbons down and give the egg a finished look.

See the nice finished look that gives the back of the egg? Yay, problem solved!

Cut your textured scrapbook paper to fit your card form and adhere it to the card form. Then, adhere your egg to the textured paper using foam squares to give it a little height and make it pop.

Simple handmade Easter cards ready to be sent. If you would like, you could stamp or write a clever Easter saying on the inside. Something like, “Have an Egg-ceptional Easter.”
