Our Essential Guide to DIY Easter Cards
Read on for our essential guide to Easter Cards, showing you the best way to make homemade Easter cards and (if you’re feeling a bit lazy) where you can buy some super cute ones!
Did you know that the practise of sending cards started way back in the 19th century?
According to the Royal Mail: “Early Easter Cards took the form of a postcard” and featured Easter symbols, scenery and sometimes well-known buildings.
The Royal Mail say: “By 1910 lambs, poultry, and eggs featured heavily on cards as a symbol of rebirth. The Easter Bunny also appeared frequently.”
We hope that’s given you some inspiration for making your very own Easter Cards . . .
‘Chic’ Easter Cards
Are you looking for a homemade Easter Card idea that your kids can help with?
1) If your little darlings are up for getting their digits messy get them to make some yellow finger or thumb prints on some white paper.
2) Then you can turn each print into an Easter chick, by adding detail with a fine liner (try our PIN pens).
3) Then stick the white paper onto coloured card and you’re done!
Thanks to the Red Ted Art Blog for this simple Easter Card idea.
