We made some Easter Bunny cards to send to friends and family, and if you fancy having a go, here's what we used:
- Coloured card
- Thicker card to make a template
- Rabbit cookie cutter
- Poster paints
- Craft pompoms (or you could use cotton wool)
1. Cut and fold your coloured card to the required 'card' size. I made sure they would fit in the envelopes I have this time - see, I'm learning!
2. Famously, I can't draw for toffee, so I traced around a cookie cutter and cut out with sharp scissors making a template on the cardboard.
3. Then we had some fun mixing some colours with the paint. I was aiming for pastels, which we mostly achieved except for the purple where Ruby squeezed the blue a little too enthusiastically.
4. I held the template firmly in place on top of the card, while Ruby sponged the paint on. It took her a few attempts before we mastered the best 'dabbing' technique.
5. Then the cards were left to dry.
6. Once dry we selected our fluffy tails. I thought contrasting colours would look nice, but no. Everything has to match with Ruby! Stick the tails on with a little glue and allow to dry again.
When fully dry, they are ready to send Easter wishes to friends and family.
