DIY Easter egg card
by Natalie Keeler

We love making homemade cards at Easter – it can be quite relaxing after all the hullabaloo of egg hunts and eating chocolate, and they make sweet keepsakes for family and friends. For this DIY design, all you need to do is create an egg-shaped hole in the front of the card, then glue wrapping paper behind it. Easter card, sorted!

You'll need:

  • Patterned wrapping paper
  • Coloured card
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make this Easter egg card

Step 1

Help your child to fold the piece of card in half and position it with the opening to your right.

Step 2

Draw an Easter egg outline on the front of the card. Fold it slightly to make a snip in the middle of the egg, so your child can cut out the shape without damaging the front of the card.

Step 3

Cut a piece of wrapping paper. Ask your child to add glue inside the card (on the left side only) and then stick on the wrapping paper so it’s facing out, through the egg.
