The weekend is almost over, which means back to work tomorrow for most of us. So to cheer you up (and myself) I am going to be giving you a little bit of bookish fun every Sunday, to make the end of the weekend that little bit easier!
So this time next week I will be chilling in Canada with my big sister and I am so so excited. But before then I’ve got 4 days left in work, lots of packing to do and of course my latest Sunday Funday post.
There is only 2 weeks until Easter, so I will be carrying on with the Easter themes Sunday Funday following on from last weeks Egg-streme Easter Fun #1 in which I showed you some really great (inexpensive and easy to make) Easter gifts.I really love doing these because it’s something a little different to my usual bookish posts and I really love showing off my love for crafts and baking too, which there will be a lot of during the next few weeks. But for this week we are all about the Easter cards!
Just like with last weeks gifts, Easter cards do not need to be expensive or flashy. Card shops can be so expensive and I am always put off when in them by the same generic messages in the cards. I want something more personal, which is why I always prefer to make my own.
I love this card, it’s so cute with the little bunny tail but is also so easy to make. Make sure you pick a spring coloured background to stick ont he front of your card, and then cute a bunny shape out of a white piece of paper/card (you can find templates here) and stick this white piece of paper/card on top of your coloured one. Then a small ball of cotton wool and a little bit of glue and hey presto, you’ve got yourself a bunny card!
Just like with the card above all you need to make this card perfect is some coloured paper and a bunny template. You could even put your coloured paper through the printer and print the template on it to make it even easier to print out. And just look at how cute it could look! Who wouldn’t love a card like this?!
A non-bunny related car, this one is a great way to use up all those odd buttons you’ve got hanging around the house! I would advise drawing the stem & leaves on first, and then sticking the button on top. Super simple but doesn’t it look great?!
Another super simple but great looking card and all you need is some strips of paper and glue. No one can go wrong when sticking paper on paper, I promise you! This card could be used to make tons of Easter related shapes for example a bunny, chick, flower, just to name a few.
If you’ve been around Broc’s Bookcase before during Easter then you will have probably seen my Easter posts from previous years. But here are the links incase you missed out…
