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.

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

    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…

    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 🙂
