DIY scratch off Easter joke cards make a great non-candy, allergy-safe Easter treat, and they are super easy to make with cute free printables and scratch-off sticker paper! Every kid knows that the only thing better than a good, cheesy joke is a good, cheesy joke with a scratch-off answer. Plus maybe a quarter. Definitely nothing better than that, right?
I just discovered the Silhouette Scratch-Off Material Sticker Paper, and I am so excited about all the possibilities for this stuff! It makes it super, duper easy to make your own DIY scratch off cards. I’ll show you how!
- Core’dinations White Cardstock
- Free Printable Download (Free for Personal Use Only – Download HERE)
- Craft Scissors or Fiskars Paper Trimmer
- Silhouette Scratch-Off Material Sticker Sheets
- Scratch Off Sticker Shapes Download (SVG or PDF)
- Silhouette Cameo (optional, but nice to have)
- Jumbo Plastic Easter Eggs
Print the joke card designs out on plain white cardstock. (Get the free download HERE.) Cut out the individual cards using scissors or a paper trimmer. There are twelve designs total. Print out and cut as many copies as you need.
On each card, the answer to the joke is in either a rectangle or an egg shape. You will cut pieces in the same shapes from the scratch-off sticker material to cover the joke answers. To cut with your Silhouette or electronic cutting machine, download the scratch off shapes SVG file. In Silhouette Studio, select “Scratch-Off Sticker Sheets” under Material Type and adjust your blade according to the settings. Then just cut!
If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine, print off the PDF version of the shapes, trace them onto the scratch-off material, and cut out with scissors.
Step Three. Peel and stick scratch-off material.
Finally, just peel the scratch-off material up off the yellow backing and carefully apply to the card over the joke answer. The bunny cards get rectangular stickers, and the egg cards get egg shapes.
If you roll them slightly, the DIY scratch off cards fit perfectly in jumbo plastic Easter eggs. Throw a quarter in with the joke card for an extra special treat and something to reveal the answer with!
We hope you love these DIY scratch off Easter joke cards as much as we do! Here is another free Easter printable for you to use to create sweet mason jar Easter gifts.
Happy Easter and Happy Making!
