Pop up Easter card with honeycomb paper

It wouldn’t be Easter without some crafting to accompany the piles of chocolate and hot-cross buns, so this week we’ve got an egg-sellent (sorry!) tutorial on how to make the easiest 3D greetings card ever.

Egg template and washi tape

You Will Need:

Printed scrapbook card

Honeycomb paper

A card blank

Various washi tapes

Sharp scissors

A craft knife and a cutting mat

Strong glue

Sticky pads

1. Start by deciding how big you want your egg shapes to be, then trace or print a template.

2. Fold your template in half, then place the crease along the edge of the honeycomb paper. Draw around it, and cut it out – you should have what looks like half an egg.

Glue the honeycomb egg shape in place

3. Slowly pull the layers apart and open the honeycomb egg up. Apply a little glue to one side and place in the centre of the opened card blank, then press down firmly. Repeat for the other edge – your 3D part is done!

Decorate your scrapbook card eggs with washi tape

3. Cut out four egg shapes from your scrapbook paper, and then decorate with layers of washi tape. Apply a sticky pad to the reverse and then stick them into place.

Decorate the front of your Easter card

4. Decorate the front of your card – we cut some letters out of a square of scrapbook paper and then discarded them to create a stencil-effect, and stuck it on using washi tape.

5. Eat chocolate and admire!
