Free Easter Cards
Make Free Easter Cards
easily with recycled egg cartons.
Nannie CanDo shows you how, with a little extra imagination your Poppit can learn a little about recycling the common old egg carton
and at the same time create a very unique Easter gift.
Have you had fun coloring Easter eggs this year?
Clear away all the egg dying paints (you may like to store these in air-tight jars for more craft projects) and set up your paints for the next exciting craft creation...the free Easter card.
How about turning the egg carton into one of Nannie CanDo's Easter gift ideas!
Put down some newspaper and pop on a painting smock or one of Daddy's old shirts.
You will need...
- Plain white paper
- An empty egg carton
- Paint and paint brushes, you could even use spray paint
- Craft glue or hot melt glue
- Shredded clear or colored cellophane
- Photo of you or a picture that you love
- Colored ribbon or raffia
- Shredded wood wool(optional)
How To Make Free Easter Cards
Step 1 Paint the egg carton all over, inside and out. Use 1 or more different colors. You could even paint designs, dots, stripes, swirls etc.
Step 2 Cut piece of white paper the size that will fit on the front of the egg carton. You could decorate the edges with paint or glue ribbon around the border.
Frames are great...Perhaps make a straw frame by gluing colored straws around the edges of the paper.
Step 3 Choose a photo or a picture that you love and glue this onto the paper.
This is then glued onto the front of the egg carton.
You could even add your hand print. Just paint your hand, press it onto the paper and there you are, a very personal picture of you!
Add shredded or scrunched up cellophane to each of the sections of the egg carton.
You could even use tissue paper or perhaps colored tissue serviettes(you can get these in any color at any supermarket and make handy additions to the craft box!
Step 5 Pop 1-2 or more little chocolate Easter eggs into each section, most supermarkets have a bag of these in lots of pretty foil colors.
Maybe add a little yellow chicken in some of the sections instead of the eggs.
Close the lid over and tie a raffia or ribbon bow around the egg carton.
How To Make A Free Easter Card Tag
- Cut out a piece of colored construction paper in the shape of an egg
- Punch a hole in the top end
- Add a finger print signature or write your name
- Tie it onto your free Easter card egg carton
Perhaps you could make an Easter bunny with a pipe cleaner.
