As a child I was always fascinated by the details captured inside of sugar eggs and have always thought it would be fun to create one out of paper. I couldn’t wait to give it a try with the new Hello Easter collection by Echo Park Paper
I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine and a cut file by My Scrap Chick
to cut out the pieces for the egg (If you don’t own an electronic cutting machine, the purchase of the file also includes a PDF template).
Next, I placed a foam block and bright green Easter grass inside the egg. I then used the cute elements from the Chipboard Accents
to create the scene inside. The pieces are attached to skinny, flat craft sticks that I stuck into the foam. The bunny and chick look like they are having so much fun searching for their Easter eggs!
I even added a banner sticker (Element Sticker sheet
) going across the top of the inside of the egg for a party feel! You can catch a glimpse of it here in this photo.
At the bottom of the sugar egg opening, I placed the “Hello Easter” die cut (Ephemera
) matted with Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper (Hello Easter Solids Kit
). I tucked the floral chipboard piece to the left, and a few flower and carrot stickers (Element Sticker Sheet
) to the right).
For the top of the egg, I used the Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper
again to create a bow from 0.5″ x 12″ paper strips. I simply looped a variety of lengths together to form the bow and then secured them together with a brad. The tails of the bow are curled the same way you would curl curling ribbon … by using the edge of a flat tool (like a bone folder) instead of a pair of scissors.
I can’t wait to add this paper sugar egg to my Easter decor!
