Easter Egg card

Our easter egg card happened by accident but I just love the way it turned it and it really is very easy to do and a great way to show off some of the easter eggs that the kids seem to love to make.    We were actually cutting and sticking shapes and ended up the result below.

My daughter thought it looked like a lovely bright ball.  But it got me thinking I wonder what it would like look if we did the same thing but with easter eggs.  Maybe it was the fact that we had all just eaten an easter egg to eat or maybe it was because little man was making some lovely looking easter eggs.

To start with glue the one half of the back of an easter egg onto your card (leaving the other half free).  You only ever apply the glue to the back of your easter eggs.

My daughter also thought it would be good to write the words Happy Easter on her card.

I really do love the end result of this card.
