Patterned Paper Easter Eggs

Basket of Patterned Paper Easter Eggs Decorating Idea

Busy busy. That was the agenda last week with FOUR birthdays and TWO sets of visitors. I'm considering plunking a Bed&Breakfast sign out front. Or not. I did manage to squeeze in just enough time to create these cute patterned paper Easter eggs.

These are really fun and super easy to make.  I used the next-to-smallest oval from the Ovals Collection framelits dies to cut the shapes from Stampin' Up! Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (two of each pattern for front and back).

The contrasting trim was stamped on strips of card stock using Whisper White Craft Ink and the chevron pattern rubber stamp from the Oh, Hello stamp set. Then I simply snipped along the zig-zag pattern along the top and bottom of the strip.

The ovals were glued together (after embellishing) with a small wooden skewer in between. You could also use Popsicle sticks or even chopsticks - whatever you have on hand. I also tied each one with contrasting ribbon in a little bow.

What's an Easter egg without a few embellishments, eh?!  I added Dazzling Details along the chevron trim for super sparkle and then added buttons, brads, rhinestones, and/or pearls. Yes, my Easter eggs have baubles. And yours should too. ;)

Maybe that B&B sign should read: Bed & Breakfast & Baubles. That should reel 'em in.


p.s. March is National Craft Month! What will you be making this month?
