I decided to do something a little different for easter this year – I’m sending some Easter Happy Mail to a few special friends! I mean, really, what could be happier than receiving these cute little bunnies in your mailbox? Well, maybe opening up the card to find a gift card for a special local treat! That’s what I call happy mail! I had fun using the lullaby collection (both boy and girl) to create these cards. Since each collection had a cute bunny sticker, I thought they were perfect for Easter – and didn’t really scream “BABY” as the collection suggests. I love finding a way to stretch a themed collection, don’t you? Here’s a look at the finished project – keep reading for step-by-step instructions!
Start with a piece of white cardstock – cut it to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score both sides at 2 1/2″. Fold the flaps in.
Now cut a strip of patterned paper 2 1/4″ wide. Then cut this strip into two 5 1/4″ pieces.
Use adhesive to glue down the right and left edges of the bottom flap. Add the patterned paper strips to the bottom flap (which is now a pocket) and the top flap.
Place the bunny sticker on the top flap – only the ears should be “stuck” down. Use baby powder to remove the stickiness from the body and legs of the bunny sticker. (I like to sprinkle a little bit on my work surface, then use my finger to rub the powder on the sticky part of the sticker). Next, add a floral sticker to the inside of the top flap.
Now use one of the hearts from the patterned die-cut pieces in the top left corner of the top flap. Add foam adhesive to a heart sticker and add it next to the first heart.
Now it’s time to tuck a note and gift card inside the pocket!
Wrap coordinating twine around the outside of the card and tie a bow! That’s all there is to it! Slide it into an envelope and pop it in the mail – you’re going to make somebody’s day!!
