Easter Eggs


It's Anja here. We're one week away from Easter and it's time to make some Easter decorations. I decided to decorate some plastic eggs.

I used:
- Cottage Cutz Dies (Spring Butterfly 1, 3D Flower #7, Spring Greenery),
- colored card stock,
- Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss),
- tools for making 3d flowers,
- flower stamens,
- plastic eggs,
- glue,
- purple acrylic paint,
- brush,
- purple ribbon,
- glitter

First I colored plastic eggs with acrylic paint and sprinkled them with glitter while they were still wet. I let them dry.

I die cut some greenery from green card stock and butterflies and flowers from light violet card stock. I cut only the tree smallest flowers from the flowers die. I used Distress Inks to color the edges of the die cuts.

Then I used tools to make 3d effects and assembled the flowers and butterflies. I put stamens in the middle of the flowers.

When the eggs were dry I hanged it with some purple ribbon. Then I put all the leaves around the top of the eggs. In the end I added the butterfly on one egg and two flowers on the other egg. 

Have a nice Sunday.
