How to Make a Photo Surprise Easter Egg Card:

Arty Crafty Kids | How to make a Kid-Made Easter card. Complete with Easter Egg templates!

Step 1:

Download and the print the Easter Egg Card Templates from the Arty Crafty Members Area.

If your Arty Crafty Kids are painting or colouring the cards, I would recommend printing on to white card stock. If the card is used as a base for sticking tissue paper, paper or buttons (etc), simply print the template on to coloured card stock.

Make sure the card is under 160gsm, otherwise your printer may struggle!

Step 2:

Cut out the egg shapes.

Fill the circle with a photo of your Arty Crafty Kids ( or ask them to draw a self portrait) and add a unique Easter message.

Step 3:

Pick up the egg without the flaps and remove the top, cutting in a zig-zag formation to create a “cracked egg” effect.

Step 4:

Fold the flaps of the second egg into the shape.

Step 7: The egg is ready to decorate!

Here we’ve scrunched up some tissue paper and arranged into decorative lines.

Arty Crafty Kids may also enjoy decorating with buttons, sequins, coloured/patterned paper and anything else stashed within the craft box.

The Easter Egg will now open and close to reveal the special message inside!

How to Make a Photo Surprise Easter Egg Handprint Card:

To personalise the cards further, add a handprint by replacing the upper cracked egg element with a dried handprint.

This works particularly well if your Arty Crafty Kids use their fingerprints to decorate their eggs.

And to tidy the cards up, trace around the upper and lower egg elements on to white paper and stick the cut out traced parts to the back of folding egg elements to cover up the joins; creating a nice finish to your Easter Egg Card.

This craft has many creative approaches and I hope your Arty Crafty Kids enjoy the process of creating their very own Photo Surprise Easter Egg Card!
