Easter Cards To Make Using Older Supplies!

I love to use up older supplies. It validates the stuff be bought years ago and held on to. If you have some oldies in your stash that you want to give new life to read on!

I start with patterned paper and then pull the embellishments and do any stamping and coloring to match. I like to make envelopes with the pattern paper and then use the scraps to decorate the cards. To make the envelopes simply measure corner to corner, add one inch to that measurement and cut a square that size. Then fold the points around the card. This will work for any square or rectangle card! Watch the video to see it done!

I also have the habit of making embellishments. I think I enjoy making embellishments more than finished cards sometimes so it’s easy to end up with too many. I went through quite a crochet flower phase about 12 years ago and I am still enjoying the bounty LOL!

Here is a list of supplies I used in this video. Many things are discontinued but I used affiliate links if they are still available. Fee free to substitute with what you have. (If you are making Easter cards today you will probably have to LOL!)

I also have tutorials for my DIY supplies (warning, the crochet flower one is OLD!)

As you can see I was pretty late to the Easter card making game this year. They have not been sent out yet, I might try to hand some out or just save them for next year and be ahead for once, what do you think?

I hope you have a great weekend and till next time “hoppy” crafting!

  1. Happy to see I’m not the only one who makes embellishments and tucks them away. Whenever I get a new stamp, I try it out. Then I use any new markers, pencils or paints with the print. I do the the same with new techniques.

    After 20 or so years, I have bins upon bins of these so-called goodies.šŸ™‚
