Zetti Eggs






These are some of my eggs for the Zetti Egg Swap. They are about the size of an ATC. We were given a template and were asked to make as many as we wanted to swap. Well.... I thought about it and decided to make a dozen. If I didn't want to swap them all I could hang the extras on my little egg tree. Or... maybe I will just make an egg tree for my studio. I got a bit carried away and made more than a dozen. I thought I would share some with ya'll that were finished and dry. Unfortunately glitter does not scan well, but I assure you I used at least two types of glitter on each egg. I had a bunch of different type of Zetti images [some from Teesha Moore and some from old postcards] and a bunch of cardstock and some paper ribbon. I just sat down and spent a few hours decorating. It was so much fun. This would make a really fun one morning or afternoon group project with arty friends.

Absolutely delightful Elizabeth! I just love how you put these all together! The fellow swappers are going to adore these! :) I'll let you know when they arrive!

And please feel free to share the template! I just made it with a shape template in a word document - super easy since I cannot draw a perfect oval freehand.

If you want to check out my blog it is at: www.magicmolecules.blogspot.com. Have a wonderful evening!
