Amy started talking about doing something crafty at 7 AM this morning and she didn’t really stop until 10 AM, so eventually, I gave in and agreed to make some washi tape Easter cards with her. Amy loves washi tape just as much as I do and as it’s one of my favourite materials to use for craft projects, this really wasn’t too much hassle for a Saturday morning. Washi tape is quick and easy to work with, absolutely mess-free (always a plus point in my book!) and kids of all age groups can use it without lengthy instructions. It’s the perfect craft material, if you ask me! I’ve even spruced up picnic cutlery with it!
Before we went about making our Easter cards though, I quickly jumped on the laptop to create a little Easter bunny template and an Easter egg template which we then used to sketch the motives on our cards. You are more than welcome to download them, if you are after a basic template for your Easter crafts. I’m no graphic designer, but I thought I might as well share them with you to save you the hassle of making your own.
What you need for your Easter cards:
white card board, we used A5
piece of paper in the same size as your card board
stencil, template or drawing skills
washi tape (a selection)
How to make your washi tape Easter cards:
1. Fold your cardboard in half, creating a card.
2. Draw your Easter bunny or egg shape on the cardboard and cut out the shape, creating a cut-out card.
3. Fold your piece of paper in half and cover one of the sides in lines of washi tape.
4. Glue the page covered in washi tape behind your cut out and finish your card by writing an Easter wish on it.
You could also draw an egg or bunny, cut it out, cover it in washi tape and glue it onto the card. The choice is yours, but I thought the passepartout effect was a nice one, so we went with that one for our washi tape cards.
