With Easter on its way, it’s good to think about what cards you are going to craft and send to friends and family. Today’s selection of Easter card ideas are from the easier end of the crafting spectrum and so are ideal for papercrafting novices or experienced crafters looking for more straightforward projects alike. They would also make fun projects to do with children.
This first,short video demonstrates how to make a simple yet effective Easter card decorated with Easter eggs. What I like about this make, is that the decoration for the eggs is drawn onto a larger piece of card, with the egg shapes then being cut out. This means that the line and dot decorations go all the way to the edge (and beyond) of the eggs which is less likely to be the case if the shapes were cut out first. Why not let the kids paint the card? I have a feeling this would lead to some pretty colourful eggs.
The card made in this next video is a great example of how easy it can be to make a cute yet effective card. It involves the use of glitter which brings out the child in all of us! In fact, this would make a great project to do with your children / grandchildren as I’m sure they would love to do the glitter part for you. And I’m sure they’d really get stuck into gluing the card! For me, I would probably prepare the card front fully before fixing to the card blank – that way if anything goes awry and I need to start again, I haven’t wasted my card blank. But may be I’m just ultra cautious!
This next Easter card project is for a cute chick card. This is unlikely to be one for much younger children to help with but there’s no reason why older children who can be let loose with scissors and glue couldn’t have fun with this one. What’s unusual in this case, is that, being a pop up card, all the work and interest goes into the inside of the card, rather than on the front. The demonstrator uses a small chick decoration on the front of the card so it doesn’t look blank when you receive it but for ease, you could always simply stamp a “Happy Easter” greeting on the front. As this design uses just a card blank, coloured paper and glue, it doesn’t even use up your stash of cardstock!
In order to make this next super easy card, all you need is some coloured paper, scissors and glue. Oh and some stick on googly eyes! This card is a really quick make and would be ideal to do with the children as a simple Easter holiday project. The video only takes just under 2 minutes to watch too.
Hopefully this selection of easy make Easter cards will give you not only food for thought but also some fun projects to do with your family.
