Easter Card Tutorial

April 8, 2014

My daughter has done sterling work creating eight Easter Cards, here’s her tutorial (thanks to Ghost Hill School for the idea!):

Easter Card Tutorial

Fold yellow card in half. Using a shape print shapes round the edge of the card, she used a cotton reel for circular shapes, a mega block would work for square shapes. Leave to dry.

Cut a white paper so it is a little smaller (a cm smaller each side). Using your thumb print 6 circular shapes across the white card. This is the body of each of your chicks. Leave to dry.

Glue white paper onto the yellow card. Using a black pen draw eyes and wings onto each chick.

A perfect activity for the Easter holidays:) Today I am linking up with Tuesday Tutorials,

    Love this! Completely forgot using cotton reels as stencils- but LOVE all cards that use finger prints (so personal, and such a wonderful memento).
    Definitely one to try!
