If you're like me and love the look of Italian Florentine papers, then this is a fun project for you. Even if you'd rather use another paper, or your own photos, this is still for you. Really, this is for just about anyone.
When I was a little girl, my mother had a big bucket of stand and a rather small limb from a tree that had broken off during a winter storm. A few weekends before Easter, we would spend a day preparing raw eggs to decorate and hang on the tree. My mother would poke a small hole in one end and and my sister and I would blow the insides out. This project is a bit more glamorous than blowing raw egg yolk through a pinhole in an eggshell. I guarantee your face won't turn red.
Here's what you need:
- A pack of wood egg shapes (these are flat)
- A bottle of Glamour Glue
- Rossi paper or other decorative papers
- An X-Acto knife
- A small paint brush
- 1/8" drill bit and drill
- 1/8" ribbon
- Cut a piece of paper slightly larger than your wood shape.
- Paint the Glamour Glue onto the wood and press the paper to the glue. Smooth to press out all the air and avoid wrinkles. Allow to dry.
- Using your X-Acto knife, place paper-side-down and trim around the wood shape to remove the paper.
- Drill a hole through the wood shape at the top. I measured about 1/4" from the top.
- String the ribbon through and tie off one end.
And you're finished! If you want to take it one step further, follow this tutorial on coating them with Luxe Resin.
