  1. Start with a blank card and scraps of scrapbook paper. Cut the scrapbook papers into strips of different widths.
  2. Paint glue on the front of the card and then set the strips down, carefully lining them up.
  3. Let the card dry.
  4. Draw an egg-shaped template to fit the size of your card.
  5. Place clips on the side of the card where you will not cut. The clips ensure you don’t cut the folded edge of the card.
  6. Cut around the unclipped area of the egg shape.

Your Scrappy Easter Card is ready for a message! Happy Easter!
