Instructions

Step 1
Freehand "cracked" egg pattern around egg above mid-centre.

Step 2
Once desired pattern is achieved, cut with Versa Tool™ using Hot Knife Tip.

Step 3
Separate egg. Lightly use sandpaper to remove rough edges.

Step 4
Glue wide ribbon right below "cracked" pattern with hot glue gun.

Step 5
Glue thinner ribbon over wide ribbon.

Step 6
Cut Styrofoam® to fit into egg using serrated kitchen knife. Styrofoam® should not show above cracked pattern.

Step 7
Secure foam to bottom of egg with hot glue.

Step 8
Cut stems at alternating heights using floral wire cutters.

Step 9
Using large Gerber Daisies first, fill out basic shape of the arrangement.

Step 10
Follow with Lilies and Tulips to finish out basic shape. You will need to cut apart any bushes you use to get flowers to fill where you need.

Step 11
Finish by filling in open spaces with grasses, branches and small florals.

Step 12
Cut berry branches short and fill in at the base of the arrangement to cover the Styrofoam® and any open space seen inside the egg.

Tips

To give your egg a "cracked" look around the edge, draw the design with a pencil before cutting with your Versa Tool. Then, for a smooth finish, lightly sand the edges with sandpaper.
