Easter Egg Cards - Two Ways To Make!
Easter egg cards two ways to make

I've got a two for one today!  Two ways to make the same Easter egg card.  I started with this pin:




but then thought of another way to do it.  I'm going to share both ways for making these Easter egg cards.  They're both quick and easy, I promise.  The first way is a great way to use up paper scraps!

Cut a piece of thick paper or card stock the same size as the card.
Glue strips of paper across it.

 Trim the edges.

Cut an egg shape in the front of the card to make a window.
Glue the paper with the diagonal paper strips inside. . .

. . . and it will show through the window!

Ok, now for the second way.  It's even faster and easier and it uses washi tape, my newest favorite craft material!

Cut out an egg shape.  Cover it with strips of washi tape.

Fold the edges of the washi tape over the sides of the egg
or trim the edges with scissors.

Glue the egg onto the front of a blank card or folded piece of card stock.

 That's it!  Seriously, is that easy or what?

This one is my favorite.  I like the bright colors and fun patterns of the washi tape.  It almost looks like fabric.  And it's even easier and faster to make than the first Easter egg card!  I'm talking about minutes - no joke!
