The Project I have to share with you today is my Decorative Egg.
Easy to make, these eggs are dressed in Designer Series Paper. I used Newsprint, but you could easily use First Edition for a similar look. The eggs are embellished with Big Shot Dies and punches and crowed with rhinestone centers.
My husband got me this great old box at a recent auction he attended. It makes a perfect nest for my egg.
I used actual newspaper to create the nest in the Cigar box.
I cut my Designer Series Paper into One inch strips and used Tombow glue to adhere the strips to the Styrofoam egg. I used an old paintbrush (now called my glue brush) to paint the glue on the back of the paper. I just held it in place for a few seconds and creased it to fit the curves as I went along.
I added water to the Tombow glue and coated the entire egg after all the DSP was in place. This acts as a sealer and is much less expensive then Mod Podge or similar products.
I used my Bone Folder to curl the edges of the Fun Flowers Die and added the Silver Glass Glitter to make them shimmer. I added Rhinestones to the center of the flower to finish it.
