Easter Postcard By Yourself
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is traditions of Easter to exchange holiday-related presents: postcards, painted eggs, bunnies, chickens. They encourage people to absorb the festive spirit of this holy day. Although, the thing that will contribute to mutual understanding and delight is to make such presents by yourself, not to repeat ordinary postcards from gift shops, for instance. In addition, they might bring pleasure and impress those ones, for whom they are made for.

As an exclusive version, I offer you to make Easter postcard in a shape of chicken egg, which totally carries the mood of the holiday and might be the reflection of your artistic imagination.

For this craft we need:

basis for the cards – two-sided cardboard

pencil

ruler

universal glue

pinking scissors

ordinary pair of scissors

fine felt of yellow color

flap of tissue, remnants of the sewing

colored laces

satin ribbon width of 8-10 mm

2 sequins, rhinestones - flower and heart

2 ready eyes

thread

needle

1. Print the paper with egg contours (with its size of 12x9cm), then just cut it off the paper.

2. Cut from two-color cardboard (size 14,5 x22 cm) the basis for the card. Gently bend the base in half, and you get a postcard of 14,5 x 11 cm size.

3. The crippled paper egg put on the fabric and felt, and then carefully cut it off with the help of pinking scissors. The key thing is to cut it with slightly smaller sizes, than those one on the paper. Make a pencil mark on the reverse side of tissue egg, precisely in the middle (approximately 3 cm width).

4. Cut the flat in the middle of the tissue egg off.

5. On the reverse side of the felt egg put the glue and stick it on the paper with a shift left from the middle of the card. Glue two pieces of the tissue egg on the felt one, keeping the 3 cm distance between them. On the space between them (the surface should be comprised with remaining yellow felt) put eyes and nose appropriately (as it is the face of chicken).

6. Then glue the lace piece on the upper part of the lower piece of tissue egg. Cut of the remaining lace, which goes off the postcard’s borders. Do not forget to give the glued parts some time to dry up.

7. Cut off the borders of the postcards around the egg, leaving some space around. Do not cut the bending place. To sign the postcard, use appropriate Easter fonts, so it could be done preserving the holiday character.
