How to Make an Easter Egg Card

This is a Repost of my VERY first project here on Fireflies and Jellybeans! It is a cute Easter Egg card and since I only had 2 followers (Jeannine and myself) when I posted it, I thought that you all might want to see it! : )

Here is a cute and easy card to make for Easter:
Materials:
Scissors
hole punch
Scoring tool (I use a ruler and a skewer)
Plain Card stock
Strip of decorative paper
Ribbon
Pencil
Marker


1. On the card stock draw an egg shape:
2. Cut out the egg shape

3. Place your strip of decorative paper upside down, place the egg shape on top of it and trace around the outside of the egg shape
4. Cut out on the lines that you traced on the strip of decorative paper
5. Place the strip on to your egg being careful to line up the edges
6. Use your scoring tool to score a straight line for the fold. I use a ruler and the pointed side of the skewer to make my score. Be sure to leave enough room for you to punch 2 holes on the other side.
7. Punch two holes through both layers
8. Tie a ribbon through the two holes to attaching the top paper to the bottom paper

9. Write a creative greeting on the front. I am not creative so I wrote "Hoppy Easter!"

There is lots you can do with this fun card so go out and make one! : )

This is really cute too...you know...I have 2 birthdays coming up to plan. This would be a great alternative for invitations instead of buying from the store. Cheaper and "heart" made! Love it!
