Paper Mache Eggs Tutorial...

The other night Kassidy and I decided to play with Modge Podge. We bought some plastic eggs at the craft store....

...and gathered 3 vintage books that I had picked up while thrifting just for the purpose of using the pages for some paper crafting....and a pair of scissors.

We covered the eggs with the book pages.



We used a vintage hymnal for some of them because we thought it was only fitting....after all,
HE is the reason for Easter...and new beginnings.



I love the way that the words and the music look together...







We put them around the house to remind us of the promise of spring....which to me always means the promise of new beginnings.

Great way to display your eggs. I love how you include Kassidy in all the things you make. I saw on Rae Ann's blog that she joined you at the Clothesline Club. Cute apron she was wearing. I can only imagine a few years from now the things she will be creating because of all the things she learned from you.

You are so darn creative. I just love everything you do and your blog is the first one I read each am and could stay on her all day looking. I bought the Grandma's Kitchen Applique and loving preparing for it. Wish I lived close to take your class.

Have a good day...

This is such a great idea. I love how the eggs look. I really don't like plastic eggs so I am going to make some. The hymnal ones are my favorite.
