Easter Egg Pocket Cards
These colorful Easter eggs are actually pockets to hold a small letter or note.
The note card slips right inside...
And is hidden away. Here's how to make them:
~12x12 patterned scrapbook paper (One sheet per egg)
~Decorative scissors (optional)
~Hot glue (optional)
1. Trace template on back of scrapbook paper.
Template can be found here: Template (16KB)
2. Cut out two egg shapes.
3. Apply glue around the edges of the back of one egg, stopping two-thirds of the way up.
4. Place the other egg shape on top and let dry.
Now you are ready to decorate your egg pocket however you like. Here are a few ideas...
~Ribbon and tiny beads.
~Coordinating paper on the top and bottom.
For this technique, you cut out another egg shape, then cut three strips with decorative scissors. Discard the middle section.
Glue the top and bottom pieces onto egg.
~Stickers and ribbon.
Once the glue is dry, it is ready for the note card.
Take your leftover strip of scrapbook paper and cut into a square. Write your note or letter on the back side of it.
Fold it up and place inside pocket.
Let me know if you make some!
