Thumbprint Easter Egg Card
Mar 24th, 2015 by Craftylocks

 

Once you start thumbprinting some Easter eggs, it is hard to stop!

We made some Thumbprint Easter Eggs yesterday and it was so much fun that I made a basket just right for some more.

You can copy or print out this Easter basket onto a card, or just to make a picture.

Use an inkpad or two inkpads if you have them, to make lots of egg shapes.

I did think after I started that you it would have been a good idea to mask the top of the basket so the thumbprints did not go on the basket, but I found another solution.

Use a pen to add some decorations.

Then colour in the basket and you have a very personal Easter card!

Thumbprint Easter Eggs

An easy and fun way to make some Easter themed artwork.

Using inkpads, make lots of thumbprints.

Of course they are an instant egg shape! Just add circles, stripes, stars and some spring flowers to decorate them.

These are fun in themselves, and completely chocolate free!! While you wait for the real ones, these can also be used to decorate an Easter card.

Pleated Paper Rainbow Circle
Mar 13th, 2015 by Craftylocks

Rainbows are such a great excuse to use colourful paper. Add a pot of gold and it is a St Patricks Day paper craft!

For this craft you need paper in all the colours of the rainbow, to make it a St Patricks rainbow craft make sure you have some extra green paper for a shamrock, and brown for the pot of gold.

Good luck and have fun making your St Patricks rainbow circle.

Pleat each sheet of paper and then fold it in half. Cut out a shamrock and pot shape out as well.

Glue each pleated fan together in the middle, and to the next fan. I thought it looked quite cool cool after each one had been glued together and it made a half circle fan shape.

But the plan was a circle, so I made the final glueing step and joined all the fans together to make a circle with a pot of gold in the center.

St Patricks Day Envelope Corner Bookmark
Mar 12th, 2015 by Craftylocks

I had so much fun making these the other day that when a green envelope arrived in the house, I knew it needed to become a shamrock bookmark!

Please have a look at all the steps for Bookmarks made from Envelope Corners to see how easy they are.

For a St Patrick’s shamrock bookmark we of course needed to bookmark a book by an Irish author! An author that we love and highly recomend is Roddy Doyle, and his books; The Giggler Treatment and Rover Saves Christmas. These were also some of the stories the children read to me while I painted the Forest Lagoon Mural.
