What you’ll need

  • Green card stock

How to make it

  • Spring Peeps - Step 1

    First, make a fold about 3 ? inches from one short end of a 6- by 9-inch piece of green card stock. Fold the paper again, in the opposite direction, about 2 inches from the other end, as shown.

  • Trim the shorter flap to resemble grass, then write a springtime greeting or a guest’s name across the top of the card.

  • Glue on baby chicks using ?-inch yellow pom-poms for the bodies and ?-inch pom-poms for the heads. Then glue on black seed bead eyes and tiny beaks cut from a piece of folded orange card stock.
