How to Make a Homemade Card for Easter
Score the 10" x 7.3" gray cardstock in half to create a card sized 5" x 7.3".
With the fold at the left, position the lid onto the front of the card and trace all around it. Cut the oval shape out.
Glue the dark pink sugar paper behind the front flap of the card to the inside of the card.
Glue the light pink cardstock behind the sugar paper to the inside of the card.
Glue crystal beads all around the oval shape on the front of the card.
Use the bunny-shaped cookie cutter to trace a bunny onto the white felt and cut it out.
Cut a small circle and small teardrop from the pink felt. Glue the pink teardrop onto the bunny's ear and the pink circle onto the bunny's tail.
Make a small nose with the pink felt-tip pen.
Add the whiskers and wiggle eye.
Glue the bunny to the front of the card.
Make a bow with the satin ribbon and neatly cut the ends shorter.
