Easter is bringing us a bunch of cute little animals such as Easter bunnies, chicks, lambs and thematic symbols like Easter eggs and others.
As we love to color and get our hands-on on everything that’s cute, easy and fun to make, we’ve prepared a cool pack of two Easter cards to share with you and your kids during these holidays.
Surprise your close ones by making a unique colorful Easter card with a hidden message inside.
These cards will surely make a great present and a wonderful decoration for the upcoming Easter.
You can choose between two versions of the hidden message Easter card, or simply print, color and make both of them.
The first Easter card template has a big Easter egg on the front and back side. On the second hidden message template, there is an Easter bunny, a chick in a basket, and some more Easter eggs to color.
Both of the cards include 3 images for the sliding mechanism – a bunny, an Easter egg, and a flower – to choose from.

How to Make Hidden Message Easter Card
What you need:
- our printable Hidden Message Easter Card template (get it at the end of this tutorial)
- paper (we recommend heavier print paper – we used 160 gsm white print paper, but the regular one will also work out fine)
- coloring supplies
- scoring tool (or simply something similar at hand)

Follow These Step by Step Instructions
Choose your preferred version and print it out (find it at the end of this tutorial).
Color the card template with some vivid colors to make it really pop out. We used a green marker for the background and a yellow one for the frame.
Use your scissors to cut out the template along the dashed lines.
Choose your favorite image for the “window” mechanism and color it.
Cut out your image.
Fold the front side of the hidden message card in half (the one that has a caption “CUT OUT”), to make it easier to cut out the card’s window.
Fold all flaps of the card and create crisp folds by pressing them down nicely.
It’s time to insert our pull-out mechanism (we’ve cut it out from the second page of the template).
Apply some glue to the flaps of the card, and make sure you got your sliding mechanism in place before you fold the card together.
Fold your Easter card up so it glues together.
Apply some glue to the sliding mechanism, and place on your chosen image (we’ve decided to go with an Easter egg).
Open the sliding window and write the hidden message…
…and slide the mechanism back into the card, to hide it.
Your hidden message Easter card is all done and ready to bring joy.
