Project Instructions

To create an easier surface to glue paper onto, lightly sand plastic eggs.  If you would like the eggs to be able to open and close, be careful not to glue the eggs shut while creating projects.

Decoupage Eggs

Use the ¾” circle paper punch to create circles for smaller egg.

Using decoupage glue and paint brush, adhere circles to the egg. Let dry.

Rose Eggs

The rose egg is created by gluing a multitude of tiny paper roses to egg.

Using the rose template, trace and cut out rose shape from pink cardstock.

To create a rose, wrap circular strip into a rose shape and hot glue together as you wrap.

Curl ends of petals to create dimension.

Adhere to egg.

Repeat to create enough roses to cover egg.

Egg Basket

Cut assorted sized strips (½”-2”) of cardstock from the Cotton Bloom stack.

Open a large egg in half. The bottom half will act as the basket.

Decoupage strips onto the egg. The bottom portion of the egg was created with blue strips decoupaged vertically and then the flowers were adhered on. The top edge of basket was created by decoupaging strips horizontally.

Create handles by gluing three strips of cardstock across the top of egg.

Cut flowers and flourishes from cardstock and adhere to handles.

Tie wide bow across the edge of basket.

Fill with raffia grass and eggs

Tips

To create an easier surface to glue paper onto, lightly sand plastic eggs. Be careful not to sand surfaces that you will NOT be gluing paper onto (for example, the chick and bunny faces). If you would like the eggs to be able to open and close, be careful not to glue the eggs shut while creating projects.
