Teresa chose this weeks project of Easter Eggs. I was keen to try out a craft for Easter and chose to do the Origami Eggs from the April 2004 issue of Living. Recently I have been buying lots of old issues from Ebay, and I also received a batch for Christmas. The older issues always appeal to me as the projects seem less styled (in a good way) and much less Photoshopped.
Anyway, Origami Eggs. I couldn’t find any origami paper but did find pretty decopatch paper so used that. These are a little rough around the edges (after many attempts) and there is no way that they would make the pages of a Living magazine, and will probably not be used as part of the Easter decorations in the house.
It’s rare for me to get the glue out in our house, so I couldn’t resist glittering an egg (or two) with the Martha Stewart glitter set I received when I went to see a taping of the show in December.
I may give these another go before Easter. It was fun to do a craft project for a change, but I certainly need to perfect my skills in the crafting department!
