Cracked Egg Cards and Envelope Baskets

   



Cracked Eggs  

  I found this cute cracked egg design to make an Easter card at

     The directions were quite a challenge for some of the students.  First you had to read the directions from the bottom up. That was confusing for some.







The directions to reverse fold also stumped a group to children.  But the end result was very cute as you can see. 



 
    Envelopes came in handy to make a basket envelope for the Easter egg card.






          First, we took a legal size envelope and cut off the end with the return address. ( Our school gets donations, boxes of old recycle envelopes from local businesses).  


         Next, the remaining part was folded in half. The top flap was cut to match the curve.  Then a cut was made along the fold and following the curve to make a handle.  






        Finally, the open side of the "basket" was glued and decorated.  





       The cracked egg card fits nicely into the basket and ready for delivery.
