Easter Card

I was digging through my stash of crafty goodness and found some left-over heart mazes from Valentines day and knew just what to do with them.  Want to see what I came up with?

I made this, it's a fun little Easter card. If you want to make one for yourself here's the supplies you will need and a quick tutorial.

Supplies Needed:
1 - 8 x 11 piece of white cardstock
Heart Maze (purchased from Walmart - they came in a pack of 6)
pattern paper scraps (ears)
2 - small black buttons
Fine black marker or pen

Step 1:  Fold your paper in half like shown above. It should be folded long- wise

Step 2:  On the lower half of your paper, trace the heart maze.

Step 3:  Set maze aside and draw in some fur about in the middle of the paper like shown.

Step 4:  Carefully cut out the heart shape.  Then cut along the line you drew for the fur.  Continue cutting up the fold line so that when you are done you have something that looks like what is shown above.

Step 5:  Next, fold the paper back into card shape and carefully cut out bunny ears on the back part of your card.  See above photo.

Step 6:  Now, it's time to decorate your card.  Add some pattern paper for the inside of the ears.  Attach the maze for the nose and buttons for the eyes.  Then, using a fine tipped marker or pen, draw in some details.

Step 7:  Don't forget the inside.  Write in your message.  Mine says Some "Bunny" thinks you are a"maze"ing. - Happy Easter.

And that's it.  It's a pretty simple card that would look really cute attached to a plate of Easter goodies for neighbors or friends.

I thought they were gonna kick me out of Walmart if I asked one more associate were those heart mazes were....place was trashed and I looked everywhere for them. No sign of them on the party aisle, toy or Easter aisle and not in the arts/crafts area either.....sigh.
