My Updated Bunny Egg

When I was around 13ish my girlfriend and I made these cute little eggs and my Mom still sets them out every year for Easter. I thought it was time to see if I could update the little critter:) Now, let me tell you off the bat...these things are time consuming! Originally, we used real eggs and poked little holes in both ends of the egg and blew the insides out. We used colored construction paper, a hole punch and started punching out like crazy! Then we just started gluing one circle at the very bottom and started layering them on top of each other until we were done! For my updated version I just bought a paper mache egg. I also used Mod Podge to glue the circles down and then put a layer on the top. The purple and white egg was made by gluing crochet thread around and around the paper mache egg.

Here's my list of supplies
  • Sugarplum Paperie's Grapefruit Twist and White Blank Slate digital paper
  • small and large SU! oval punches
  • Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa ink and marker
  • black CS
  • blue jewels
  • Mod Podge
  • hole punch
  • paper mache egg

OMG Kristie, you sure have patience to make one of these. How long would that have taken! They do look so cute though once they're all finished :)

So cute, worth the time it took I'm sure. We use to use real eggs as well.
