How to Make Dimensional Paper Easter Eggs


>Difficulty level: Beginner
Time required: 20 minutes
Age range: 8 and up

Things you’ll need:
Oval template
Pencil or other tracing tool
Nine sheets of patterned cardstock paper
Scissors
Double-sided tape

Things to do:
1. Grab a sheet of patterned cardstock and flip it over to the wrong side. Using a tracing tool and oval template, trace two eggs onto a sheet of cardstock. You can use any oval template you’d like for tracing; we’re using an oil container.

2. Trace two eggs onto three more sheets of cardstock, then trace one egg on the last sheet of cardstock. You should have a total of nine traced eggs.

3. Cut out each egg.

4. Fold each egg in half vertically, lining up the edges as best you can.

5. Place a small piece of double-sided tape on the blank side of a paper egg.

6. Place a second different patterned egg over the taped side of the egg, again lining up the edges of the eggs as best you can.

7. Turn the eggs over so that the blank side faces you. Place another piece of double-sided tape on one side of the egg.

8. Place a third different patterned egg over the tape.

9. Continue adding tape and eggs until you have used eight eggs. As you add eggs, alternate the patterns so that the same pattern doesn’t repeat. When you finish, place a piece of double-sided tape on each side of the blank egg halves.

10. Insert the last egg onto the taped blank halves.

11. If you have uneven edges, trim them with scissors. You can make several paper eggs and display them in a bowl as a centerpiece, or you can punch a hole in the top of the egg, add a thread, and hang the paper eggs from a tree or as a garland.

DIY Mod Podge Paper Napkin Easter Eggs


Difficulty level: Beginner
Time required: 45 minutes, including drying time
Age range: 8 and up

Things you’ll need:
Assorted wood eggs
Paper napkins
Mod Podge
Scissors
Paintbrush

Things to do:
1. Using scissors, cut the parts of the paper napkin you want to use for the egg. We decided to use the polka dot border of this napkin, but you can use any part of the napkin you like. Cut the napkin into small pieces that will easily fit on the egg.

2. Using a paintbrush, cover the entire egg in Mod Podge.

3. Begin adding the paper napkin pieces to the egg, smoothing them down as much as you can. There will be some corners that won’t lay down smooth, but don’t worry about those for now. Tip: If you’re finding it difficult to cover the entire egg because the egg is rolling around, you can work in small sections, adding Mod Podge and napkin pieces in one section, then moving on to the next.

4. Keep adding paper napkin pieces until the entire egg is covered. Allow 15-20 minutes for the Mod Podge to dry.

5. When the Mod Podge is dry, use your paintbrush to add one more layer of Mod Podge over the napkin pieces. As you add Mod Podge, try to smooth down the corners of each piece.

6. If there are still corners that won’t lay flat, you can also use your fingers to smooth down the corners. Once you’re finished, allow 15-20 minutes for the Mod Podge to dry.
