Top 10 Countdown! #9: Paper Punched Easter Eggs

Sometimes when I’m working on a project, I get the feeling it’s going to be a hit. I had no idea these paper punched Easter eggs would get the amazing response they did. This project has been shared around the internet more times than any other post I’ve written, and has gotten the most views in the shortest amount of time. I love this simple technique. Stay tuned this winter…I have a few ideas of how I’m going to “recycle” these into projects for the holidays!

Enjoy…again!

    Keep up the amazing creative process that you so graciously share with us.

    Eggs are very much a symbol of my religion.

  3. Rachel Blackett says:

    Could these work just as well if glued on? (So the first one is glued down flat, them the rest just a little glue on the bottem?)

    • Nikki says:

      Yes! But just be careful with what kind of glue you use. Be prepared…styrofoam and hot glue are a dangerous combo. If you use hot glue, be careful!
