Here’s What You Need:
Here’s your Easter Cross craft supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):
- Free Paper Cross Printable <–Get it here!!
- colored copy paper, colored cardstock, or construction paper
- scissors (good pair)
- glue sticks
Step 1: Get the printable
Download the Free Paper Cross Printable. You will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper and cutting out shapes up to 10 at a time.
Step 2: Staple and cut out the Cross shapes
Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5 sheets of construction paper.
That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better.
Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.
Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!
I will say, cutting out the crosses is a little tedious, just make sure you have at least 5-6 pieces of paper stapled together and you’ll have enough in no time!
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will just need to glue it all together!
- glue the colored crosses onto the black background
- glue the strips of colored paper onto the black base of the crosses
- don’t forget to write your name on the back
And you’re done!!
It took me about 10 minutes to have the supplies for 20 kids. How amazing is that?! Now you’re ready to take your Easter Crosses craft to your event. This would be a great craft for Sunday School or an Easter party.
