Felt cut out Easter Card
This month the theme for my Bostik Bloggers crafting box was Easter. With a card blank supplied, Mia and I decided that we would make an Easter card, and with a bit of help from me with the cutting she was able to put together a very sweet little card using shapes cut from foam and pink felt.
Craft knife and cutting mat
Card blank and envelope
Other embellishments - flower stickers, buttons, sequins and so on
Bostik Fast Tak Multi-Purpose Spray Glue
Cut the craft foam into an Easter egg shape that will fit neatly onto the card blank. There are plenty of templates online that you can resize and print. Then cut a piece of felt to the same shape but very slightly smaller.
Let your child use a biro to mark out the areas that they would like you to cut away, then carefully use a craft knife or scalpel to remove them.
Use the spray glue to stick the felt to the foam shape. Because the felt is porous you need to apply a first layer of glue and wait for a few minutes. Then apply a second layer to the felt and a layer to the foam, wait another couple of minutes, and press the surfaces together.
Then use the spray glue to mount the Easter egg onto the card blank.
Decorate the card with washi tape and other embellishments, we used some lovely little fabric flower stickers, and you have a sweet little Easter card.
The box of craft materials was provided to me free of charge by Bostik as part of the Tots 100/Bostik Craft Bloggers Club.
