  DESCRIPTION     Colored paper and cut up doilies make enchanting, lacey Easter cards.  
  DETAILS     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.
