How to instructions

Making gækkebrev is a popular tradition in Denmark. You send an unsigned card and the recipient has to guess who it's from. They get a little gift if they guess right, like an Easter egg. TO MAKE THE CARD: Fold a piece of yellow A4 hobby card in half. From a piece of green paper, cut out a 14x14 cm square, fold it corner-to-corner 3 times. Then cut into the folded edges to create a pattern (we cut half-tulips for an Easter vibe). Unfold and glue it to the yellow card. We decorated the edges with chickens; use "Decoration Pen Chicks". We wrote the text on white paper and cut the edges with wavy scissors before gluing it to the card (it works just as well to write directly on the card). We also edged the envelope with chickens. The decoration pen is fun and easy to use!
