Today, I’ve got a tutorial for you on making these simple handmade cards for Easter.
I love making handmade cards. However, sometimes I feel a little intimidated to make them. Have you seen some of the amazing handmade cards that people make? They are simply awe inspiring. I usually feel like I am supposed to make a card like that. The problem is that I don’t have the time or the creative juices to make the amazing cards of which I am speaking. Yet, I still like making cards. So, I just keep them simple.
It may have been simple to make, but I still think it looks cute and like it took some effort and thought. These handmade cards would go perfectly with the cute Easter Mason Jar Cookies I made for the perfect Easter neighbor gift or hostess gift.

- Textured scrapbook paper
- Egg shape cut out of cardstock (2 per card)
- Ribbon (I got mine at the dollar spot at Target and used 2, to make 3 cards)
- Foam square adhesive(affiliate link)
Start with one of the egg shapes that you cut out of cardstock. I cut mine on my Cricut, but you could easily (if you cut better than I do) cut them out by hand.
Once you have the ribbon adhered to the front of the card and trimmed, turn the egg over. Use your adhesive to ‘glue’ the ribbon to the back of the card. I found working in sections was the easiest way to accomplish this.

After a few minutes, a problem started to happen. A lot of the ribbons started to come undone. I didn’t want this to happen once I mailed the cards, so I had to come up with a solution.
I cut out a second egg shape and adhered it to the back of my ribbon covered egg. That way it would hold those ribbons down and give the egg a finished look.
See the nice finished look that gives the back of the egg? Yay, problem solved!
Simple handmade cards ready to be sent or paired with the Easter Mason Jar Cookies. If you would like, you could stamp or write a clever Easter saying on the inside. Something like, “Have an Egg-ceptional Easter.”
