Make Your Own Easter Cards Using Cookie Cutters

Easter will be here before we know it.  Sending cards to friends and relatives is a tradition that I enjoy.  This year I thought it would be fun to make my own cards to send.  The cards that I designed are easy to make and require materials that you probably already have around your house.

Supplies:

Easter themed cookie cutters, fabric, felt, scrap cardboard, pen, pencil, scissors, spray adhesive, craft glue, Easter stamp and stamp pad, and cards with envelopes.

Step 1:
Trace the cookie cutter onto a scrap piece of cardboard.  I used a piece that was part of the packaging for a dress shirt.

Cut out the pieces and decide on a fabric choice for each piece.

Step 2:
Trace each design onto fabric using a pencil and cut out.  Be sure to cut inside the pencil line if you are using light colored fabric.

Step 3:
Cut out felt embellishments to add character to each design.

I didn’t have a sheep cookie cutter but wanted a sheep card so a drew a pattern onto the cardboard to make one.

Step 4:
Spray the back of each fabric piece with spray adhesive.  Wait a minute or two until it is tacky before applying to your cards.

Step 5:
Apply to cards.  Press down firmly.

Step 6:
Add felt and ribbon embellishments.  Let dry.

My little chick had pencil marks showing on his sides.

To cover this, I edged it with orange glitter glue.

Step 7:
Stamp “Happy Easter” in each card.

That’s it!  Enjoy your new cards. 

I know I’d rather receive a handmade card any day over a store bought one.

I’m not sure which is my favorite and it’s going to be hard to decide the recipient of each card.

I like this method so much that I’m sure I’ll make more cards using cookie cutters for other holidays and seasons.

  2. I really like this idea Paula! I may have to try it sometime soon with my cookie cutters. I love the gingham too- so spring like and pretty.

    I am sure the recipients will be very happy with the cards!

    Such cute Easter cards, Paula. Enjoyed catching up on your blog. Sorry to hear of your back troubles. Hope you’re feeling better.

    Those are so cute. What a fun idea to use fabric. 🙂 I think the bunny is my favorite!

  6. Paula, these are darling! What a great way to get a pattern–I have a drawer full of cookie cutters!! And I’d rather get a homemade card than a store-bought one, too.

    The blue gingham bunny is my favorite, I think. He’s so handsome!

    Thank you so much for linking to Grace at Home. I really appreciate it!

  7. Really cute Paula! and you make them look so easy…

  8. Super adorable! Going to be going through my fabric scraps later today to see what I can come up with!

    So precious and so creative!! How come I can’t come up with these great ideas? Thanks also for all the sweet and nice comments you often leave on my blog. They’re very much appreciated and sometimes give me a BIG head 😉 Have a great weekend even though I think the weatherman says it’s supposed to rain the whole time, but that’s ok 🙂
