Take several shades of washi tape and add strips to one of your egg templates. This is your opportunity to use some of those washi tapes that you never get to use. I’d go with wider tape over skinny tape but you do whatever makes you happy. Just make sure you don’t have any white space when you are done. Overlapping is fine (cute even) but white space isn’t as cute.
Once my egg was covered, I took my second egg template and cut out the center. You can cut a slit in the center and then cut the middle out. At least, that was the plan. Once I finished, I didn't like the look so I just matted my egg on cream cardstock.
I always tell you to stock up on those Dollar Tree frames. I also stock up on frames from Goodwill, Value Village and other thrift stores. This time I used a Dollar Tree frame and added 3 coats of Peony paint by Ceramcoat Paint. I liked the idea of a white frame but I thought a pale pink frame would be better for showing off the egg. Mehh, it's just ok but I like it.
And once again we've created inexpensive but really cute framed art!
I really enjoyed making this Easter egg and I loved the fact that I got to use up some of those 5 million rolls of washi tape that I seem to collect. If you don't have washi tape, you can certainly cute strips or paper in different widths. I think that would work out just as well.
