Easter Egg Dye Note Cards are the perfect thing to make when you have finished coloring your Easter Eggs and you still have all that marvelous dye left over and are feeling creative.
Why not have some fun with paper and make these very cute inexpensive cards?
They are fun and easy to make and adds a bit more creativity to your Easter. Depending on the colors of your dyes they might be subtle and pretty or bold and striking. Wrap them up with a bow and add some envelopes and they make a great little gift.
On a wipe-able counter or on some newspaper place out sheets of artist paper or regular paper that have been folded in fours and unfolded.
With your left over Easter egg dye sprinkle the different colors over the paper either using your finger tips if you don't mind them getting dyed, or small spoons. You could use paint brushes but you would have to have a separate one for each color.
While you are letting the paper dry cut from cereal card one piece 4 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches and a second piece of cereal card 4 1/4 x 3 inches.
Glue the second piece of card in the middle of the larger piece.
This is going to be your template to make a embossed bevel in the middle of your card.
From card stock fold a 8 1/2 x 11 card stock in half lengthwise then cut this in two so you will have two 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards.
Turn the card inside out and place the cereal card for the embossing inside the blank card. Center it in the middle.
With your fingernail or with a dull pointed object, like a knitting needle, press against the paper where the cereal card is all around to form a raised edge.
When you turn the card right side out, this will be your bevel.
Cut your Easter Egg Dye artwork into 2 3/4 x 4 inch sections and using a glue stick, glue them into the center of your card.
Make sure that your artwork is completely dry before gluing it to the card.
