Easter Egg Decorating and More
Egg Decorating with Stamps, Ink, Paper and More
Creatively adorn eggs with different crafting techniques. Paper crafting using Punch Art forms as abstract designs or shapes like bunnies, teddy bears and baby chicks. Add dimension with sparkle glue, rhinestones, sticky pearls and tiny cotton balls. Color the cotton to match the animals.
Stamp with Easter motifs, either directly onto an egg or on cardstock paper. Punch the images out, cut with small scissors using cuticle scissors or tear the edges to give it an artistic touch quality painting look.
Emboss with intense powder colors that will add texture and depth when heated. Try various art work to make the most exquisite designs. Picasso with paint brushing, air brushing or use markers, especially metallic pens. They add an artistic interpretation of the Easter theme.
Using Punch Art Paper Shapes
Punch art is so precise and easy. One punch and the shape appears. Dress them up with rhinestones, pearls, buttons or beads. Try different techniques on the eggs. The nice thing about this papercraft is how uncomplicated to how elaborate it can be. Wheather it is adding many layers or taking smaller pieces to build a larger one, adding dimension or laying them flat. On the white egg, punch art butterflies give the egg an outdoor garden look. They are accomplished with emboslit templates. When rolled through a Sizzix machine, they punch out the shape while adding texture and dimension.
Flowers, butterflies,owls, and birds, will liven up an egg with nature. Share the glory of spring with every egg.
You don't have to have a ton of punches. Just a few will take you a long ways. The mini paper roses are hand cut, no punch needed. Many of the designs you can stamp what you want and use cuticle scissors to cut around it and make it look punched out.
Anytime you plan to glue on a styrofoam textured egg, the hot glue sticks better. It works best to paint the egg with craft paint. Let it dry fully and then decorate with paper. I used low temperature glue in the glue gun on styrofoam. That will prevent it melting the styrofoam or deforming the shape.
Bubbles are such a necessity for Easter baskets. Make them a bit more festive by adding a rubber stamped , punch art design with ribbon or colorful twine.

Textures to Use on Eggs
Crimping paper with a wavy effect adds dimension and a strong base to layer other decorations on top. There are hand crimping tools specifically for paper.
Pinwheels are childhood toys, make a mini pinwheel to attach around the egg. A thin rolled piece of paper can represent the stick handle.
Dimensional papers are the easiest way to add interest to an ordinary egg or dyed egg. That is the hip thing about embosslits. They punch art the item while impressing it with a dimensional feel and texture.
Embellish Eggs with Scrapbooking Accessories
Add a little more to each egg by dressing them up. Use ribbon, buttons, rhinestones, pearls, beads, especially seed beads and colorful twine.
- Ribbon adds frill and a fancy look. It also works perfect as a loop handle so one can hang the decorated eggs on an egg tree.
- Buttons are a whimsical addition and surprising. Make them into shapes by using the button part as the body of an animal like a duck or a bunny. Make patterns with tiny buttons.
- Rhinestones add shimmer and bling to anything. Add as centers to flowers.
- Pearls look like mini eggs. Add some grass (ink, paper or real) and then a few pearls in the grass to look like they are hidden among the grass. Add a punch art bunny and punch art basket and you have an Easter scene on an egg.
- Beads are perfect for the keepsake eggs. They add an elegant touch and a lot of color to any surface.
- Colorful twine is useful to make nests, add a loop handle or add antenaes to paper butterflies.
Bring a Touch of Nature to Your Easter Eggs
Delicate flower petals like pansies, violets and hydrangeas and dogwood flowers will look they
are growing right on the surface.
Green Leaves and grass will make them look like a fresh spring day.
Another idea is to attach seeds to the hollow eggs. After Easter, plant in the ground so the
seed will grow into beautiful annual flowers.
Adorable egg holders enhance the whole paper crafted egg.
