How To Make Easter Gift tags & Cards


 
 
Homemade DIY cards and gift tags are a lovely way to dress up gifts at Easter - edible or otherwise! 

What you will need
Ready-made blank cards
Cutting mat
Pencil
Patterned paper
Souble-sided tape
Scalpel
Hole-punch
Ric-rac braid
Ribbons
Craft glue
 
Step-by-step  
1. To make the egg template, draw an oval onto a piece of plain paper. It should be slightly wider at the base and narrower at the top, then cut out.
 

2. Trace the template onto the front of the card. Place the card open on the cutting mat, then, holding securely, use the scalpel to cut the egg shape out.

 

3. Turn the card over and use strips of double-sided tape to secure a rectangle of patterned paper over the oval opening. If you want to use ribbon or ric-rac braid to decorate the egg, stretch it across the opening and use normal sticky tape to secure at either side before placing the patterned paper over the top. 

4. To make the matching gift tags, take the egg-shaped cutout from the cards. Use glue to stick patterned paper to the cut-out, then leave to dry. 


5. Place gift tag on the cutting board, pattern-side down, and use the scalpel to cut around the card. Punch a hole in the top of the card and add a piece of ribbon.
