I have never really made easter cards before, but I got this cute idea using fabric scraps (of course) and egg shaped cards. It was super easy to do. You could really replicate it just by looking at the pictures but if you need a diagram follow the link for the jump for a little more instruction. If you aren't comfortable with a sewing machine you could easily do a modge podge variation as well!
Hoppy Easter everyone!
- Card Stock
- Fabric Scraps
- Sewing Machine + Thread
- Fabric Scissors/Rotary Cutter
- Paper Scissors/Cutter
- Alphabet Stamps and Ink
TIME: 1 hr
DIFFICULTY: Medium - although a newbie could do it with modge podge easy.
DO AGAIN: Of course! These are so fun, cute, and easy!
1. Cut a full sized sheet of card stock in half.
2. Fold each half piece in half again, follow directions on diagram for egg shape.
3. Arbitrarily cut out shapes from fabric scraps to use as egg decoration. (I traced my egg card onto a scrap piece of paper, cut it out, and then cut out wavy shapes from that to use as guides.)
4. Place wavy shapes as desired onto the top side of your card.
5. Sew around edge of card (about 1/8 in away from edge) while holding scraps in place, catching ends of each wavy piece. (You might prefer to temporarily tape the scraps in place, but I found holding them to work just fine). I used a size 2 stitch, any bigger and rounding those curves might be a little difficult.
Modge Podge Variation: Instead of sewing scraps on, glue them in place using modge podge.
6. Complete card with Easter message using alphabet stamps.
