Hi there Stampers!
This is a project I made and featured last year, but never held the class because of our house fire. On Sunday I programmed these Easter Eggs for the lady’s who attended and they LOVED this project. .
This is a project that you can do with few supplies. This Easter Egg was made from scraps of card stock and before I go any further some of the colors are retired, but as I told you they were in my scrap box
The first thing you need to do is go to your local craft or fabric store and pick up styrofoam Eggs and Sequin Straight Pins. You can use regular straight pins, but Sequin Straight Pins are shorter and therefore they don’t interfere with each other when pushed into the styrofoam egg. The size of the eggs I purchased are 1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″. They come six in a package.
Begin this project by punching the smallest flower from the BoHo Blossoms Punch. You’ll need about 100 flowers in total.
Here’s what I did:
I punched about 20 flowers out of the following five card stocks, Orchid Opulence (retired), Pixie Pink (retired), Green Galore (retired), Daffodil Delight and Bashful Blue Card Stock with the BoHo Blossoms Punch. As mentioned earlier I punched only the smallest flower.
With my Paper Piercer I pierced a small hole in the middle of each flower. You may be able to omit this part if the pins you’re using are strong enough to go through the card stock alone. I stuck a sequin pin through the hole, dabbed it in a little Tombow Glue, to hold it in the styrofoam, and pushed it into the egg. You can place a Basic Rhinestone or Pearl in each flower. I left mine without them, because I like the way the pin heads look.
When the whole egg was covered I cut about an 8″ piece of of Pretty-In-Pink 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, folded it in half, dabbed some glue on the ends and with my Paper Piercer I poked it into the top of the egg. Then I made tow bows and attached them on the ribbon hanger with a few Glue Dots.
I’ll take a picture of this year’s egg, as soon as I finish mine. I changed the ribbon this year to the Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon. I also up-dated the colors to Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Pretty-in-Pink and Certainly Celery Card Stock. I’ll share the other projects we made at the class over the next two weeks, so check back soon.
More snow here in the Northeast-I firmly believe the groundhog was a bit off this year!!
