Good Morning! I am starting today off with my new Paper Egg Wreath! This file is a lot of fun and it can be sized smaller to fit around a base of a vase or candle or larger to fit on your doors or walls! The file comes with the 3D paper eggs and their mats, five flowers, the wreath base, and the leaf branches! The file is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats.
Here's mine hanging on my front door!
Isn't it fun? You can make these in any colors to coordinate with your decor!
Here is the tutorial:
1. Cut out your egg pieces. Place adhesive on three of the four tabs.
2. Adhere two tabs together.
3. Adhere the third tab to the center.
4. Bring up the last tab.
5. Turn the egg over so the circle side is up.
6. Adhere the mat pieces on the egg.
7. Repeat for the other four eggs.
8. Adhere the center of the flowers in the middle of each flower. Pull up the centers and curl the petals.
9. Cut the leaf branches and curl the leaf pieces with a skewer/pencil.
10. Cut the wreath base.
11. Begin adhering the leaf branches on the wreath base.
12-13. Continue adhering the leaf branches on, overlapping some.
14. Adhere the flowers on, leaving enough space for eggs in between.
15. Adhere your eggs on.
16. Attach a ribbon loop to the back of the wreath base in the top center.
You can also find my Paper Eggs and Holder in the store this week! The file comes with the 3D paper eggs and their mats, the holder base, the insert, handle pieces, and the holder base mats! The holder is approximately 3-1/2" x 6-3/4" x 3-1/4" and is compatible with both the 8x12 and 12x12 mats. The eggs can be filled with candy or money before you finish assembly then the recipient can simply press pinch the middle and bottom of the egg together to remove the items from the egg sides! As sized for the box, each egg is approximately 3" x 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" when assembled.
