My First Happy Easter Day Card
Handmade greetings cards can be fun by using simple ideas and remember to use all the left-over or unused construction papers, glue, ribbons and colorful markers always brighten up any plain cards without fail.
This is my first attempt in making Happy Easter Day Card and it was kind of fun and unique because it is not just an ordinary rectangle greeting card. I made my Easter card with a flower shape for the interior card while the front card is a half circle shape. I don't have to add too many crafts onto the front card as the space is small and limited. When I open up the card, the flower seems like blooming with bright colors that suites this happy occasion.
What To Write Inside the Easter Day Card
For finishing touches, just add the Easter quotes on the flowers or maybe you can write each word for each section divided on the flower. Words such as "JOY", "JESUS" "HAPPY EASTER" or whatever words that comes into your mind.
Sorry about the blur images as my Nokia N79 handphone memory card is full. I had to use my Samsung Z501 handphone which has very low pixel. Anyway, do send me your project when it is done. Hope that you will enjoy your handmade project. "Happy Easter !!"
Things You Need To Prepare
You need to prepare these :
- Glue- to paste the egg craft on the front card. Use white glue because it sticks firmly and dries up easily compare to normal school glue
- double-sided tape- to paste the ribbon
- pencil- to draw the egg craft and the flower petals
- a pair of scissors- to cut out the petals and flower
- penknife- to cut out the main card
string of ribbon- an 8 inch ribbon string is sufficient to tie a bow for the front card. You could obtain free ribbons from your kids' old unwanted clothes. Recycle the ribbons into good use with handmade greeting cards. If you want to buy new ribbons, get those colorful ribbons that comes in a pack. Make sure that these ribbons are made from nylon or silk base.
Color construction papers- Remember to reuse construction papers which are left over from your previous project or your kid's art craft. I used blue paper for the egg, yellow and pink for the flower. It's up to you to mix-match the color uniquely for this Easter card.
If you are out of color papers, buy those Neon color papers. It brings out bright neon colors in your Easter cards

Fold a white card measuring 10cm x 18cm into half. Draw a half circle, measuring the diameter 7.5cm. Cut out the shape. Snip off the end of each side as photo shown. Open up the half circle card. You will see a full circle with 2 snip off edges.
Draw a circle measuring 12cm on a piece of yellow construction paper. Cut out the full circle. Draw another circle measuring 15cm on a piece of pink construction paper. Cut out the full circle too. You will see the pink circle is bigger than the yellow circle.
Fold pink circle into half. Fold half again. Open up the circle . You will see four quarters with folded lines as photo shown. This time, fold half diagonally on the left and on the right. See photo shown. Open up the pink circle. You will see eigt quarters with 4 folded lines.
Repeat the same steps for the yellow construction paper. Use your thumb and index finger of each hand to press both sides to form a star. Adjust the yellow paper onto the pink paper. Ensure that the folded lines are parallel to each other. Apply double-sided tape at the back of the yellow "star" . Paste onto the pink paper. You will get a beautiful flower.
Use a pencil to draw the petals on the pink paper. Cut out all the petals carefully. Adjust the flower onto the circle white card. Ensure that it is located in the middle. Apply glue at the back of the pink paper. Paste it firmly onto the white card.
Cut around 4inch of ribbon in length. Cut another 8 inch ribbon and tie into a bow. Trim off excess "tails". Draw an oval which resemble an egg on a blue construction paper. Cut out the oval. Paste the 4inch ribbon straight down from the top. Add the bow and follow by the oval egg. Use colorful markers to draw patterns on the oval egg. Write "HAPPY EASTER" as creatively as you like.
