|TITLE||LACEY EASTER EGG CARDS|
|DESCRIPTION||Colored paper and cut up doilies make enchanting, lacey Easter cards.|
There is a
template for this lacey Easter egg project. Print two copies, one for the card, the
other for the overlay. Cut the pictured rectangle on the solid lines to
make a pattern for the card. Fold an 8 1/2” by 11”sheet of colored
paper. Line the template with the bottom edge of the paper, long side on
the fold. Trace and cut. Take the second sheet and cut along the dotted
lines. This is the overlay which is slightly smaller than the card.
Neatly cut around the edges of the egg. Cut designs from the doily,
slightly larger then the egg opening. Tape to the reverse side of the
overlay, wrong side of the doily facing you. Turn over to see if you're
satisfied with your design, then carefully place the overlay over the
colored card, making sure that the distances from all edges are equal.
Glue in place.
Tip: For a young child you might want to have the card and overlay ready to go, the child just adding the doily to the overlay. Use several layers of doily for greater effect.
