This 3-dimensional Easter card will bring a smile to anyone's face. It's a great way to wish someone special a very Happy Easter!

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Fold a piece of 8 1/2 x 11-inch green card stock in half to form a card. Cut an 8 1/4 x 5 1/4-inch rectangle from yellow card stock. Glue the rectangle to the front of the card. Draw a cute bunny onto the white card stock and cut out. Draw a large pink nose onto the pink foam and cut out. Using a cotton swab and powdered blush, apply blush to lower edge of ears to represent the bunny's inner ears. Glue the bunny head to the rectangle. Glue on the wiggly eyes. For the whiskers, curl each piece of wire around a pencil and flatten slightly with your hand. Using hot glue gun, glue ends of wire just below wiggly eyes. Glue foam nose over wire ends. Write an Easter message inside the card and send to someone special.

Cute card, Rachel's Mom! I make cards, too . . . I think I might make one like this for my daughter this year. I bet she'd get a kick out of it (she's six).

Thanks!

Easter is a special time when everything is reborn after the dark days of winter. Why not celebrate the spirit of this season by sharing cards and gifts with family and friends. Add a colourful touch to envelopes and gift bags using simple embellishments that can be sourced in the home. Don't forget to add some kisses too, to show the special people in your life just how much they mean to you at Eastertide.

Approximate Time: 30 minutes plus drying time

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Paint the outer sides of an envelope and a paper bag in a colour theme of your choice. Let dry.
  2. Place a hand-made Easter card in the envelope and seal it.
  3. Tear some gift-wrap into strips and glue to the envelope to give a pleasing design.
  4. Wrap a length of raffia or yarn around the envelope and secure with a bow.
  5. To finish, attach feathers and some "kisses" use rub on stickers or a glitter glue pen for the individual letters.
  6. Make a pair of holes on either side at the top of your paper bag.
  7. Plait lengths of yarn or raffia together to make two handles.
  8. Thread the end of each handle through a hole in your paper bag and knot on the wrong side to secure in place.
  9. Fill your paper bag with chocolate eggs or a small gift.
  10. Cut a large gift tag out of scrap card and make a hole at the top of the tag.
  11. Paint the right side of the tag so it complements the colour theme of your paper bag.
  12. Glue strips of gift-wrap to the tag as for the envelope; attach feathers and a special 'For Easter' message.
  13. Thread a length of raffia or yarn through the hole in the gift tag and tie to the handles of the paper bag.

Crafty tips: Mini pegs are a fun way to attach feathers, tags, and other items to gifts. Try using skeleton leaves, painted eggs, or hens to embellish your gifts, too. Make sure children are supervised by an adult when using sharp tools. Happy Easter!
