It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Easter Craft: Cut-out cards


1. Cut sheet of cardstock in half. Fold this in half to make your card.
2. Cut oval from front of card.
3. Glue decorative paper to inside of card. (Ours is used wrapping paper.)
4. Decorate as desired. (Those embellishments came from the dollar store.)


The original idea came from Martha Stewart. (We used paper instead of fabric, and managed to make ours without a “bone folder”! Imagine…)

  1. How about some watercolored art the kids had painted inside?

    Oh, good idea!

  2. Those are really cute. We have to make some for the grandparents.

    For the totally personal touch, you might put in some of the children’s artwork, as Jill suggested, above.

  3. SO easy but so very cute. Martha’s instructions make them sound so difficult! My girls and I will have to do these later.

    I often find that the instructions on Martha’s site are lacking. If you’re basically a crafty sort, and only need to see the item to figure it out, you’re okay. Otherwise, the instructions there tend to need more pictures.
