Make Your Easter Cards With Supplies On Hand

We don’t need another trip to the craft store or some new product to make something amazing. In these days of restricted movement, we can find the joy and beauty of creating without ever having to leave our homes. This Easter card is made completely from supplies I already had in my craft room, and I couldn’t be happier with it! 

To start this supplies-on-hand creative endeavor, I pulled out some spring paper I’ve had for years, a handful of ribbon, two Easter stamps and a tray of embellishments. As I explored the depths of my supply collection, I was amazed at some of the things I forgot I had or hadn’t seen in forever. It’s like shopping in my own stuff - and I don’t have to pay for it again!

I made this card backwards from how I normally design a card. I knew these paper tags were in the stack, so I stamped them first. Luckily I had a second sheet to practice on. Enough said.

From there, I didn’t even have to match colors because the stack was already color coordinated. Three cheers for paper crafting and not having to think! I knew I wanted to tie the tags on the card with ribbon, so I covered the card with purple paper and laid it aside. I layered the pink, yellow and striped papers separately so I could attach the ribbon and brads more easily.

I threaded the ribbon through punched hole on the tags and taped them to the back of the paper.

And then the best part - embellishments! After scattering the card with brads, I taped the tags down and then attached the whole piece onto the purple card. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out, and it’s inspired me to work on some new projects using the supplies I already have on hand. What could you make from your craft collection this weekend?
