So-when I was thrifting the other day-I found this frame and plastic egg.
The frame was the perfect color for a redo.
The egg was a chocolate container in it's previous life. (lucky egg)
Well-this little project was inspired by that idea.
I love this paper! It's such a happy,eastery paper-it was perfect for the project.
The only problem-it was a little too bright. That is where the ink comes in.
I don't know if any of you have tried the Martha Stewart Ink's at Wal-mart, I Love them! They come in a color set and a bronzed set with brown/black/copper ect.
They are $8.00-and they rock! They are perfect to ink not only paper, but fabric, frames, whatever I think needs a little aging. The shape makes them perfect for those projects that don't always have straight edges.
(do you think it would make me look better if I inked my body? I am anything but straight edges)
So-I resorted to my next favorite medium-paper!
I cut the paper in strips and modge podged it onto the eggs.
(warning-this was a bit of a pain in the butt)
Now-I don't think I mentioned that I only used half the egg. I am sure that you already figured it out, but just thought I would mention it.
I then added Ric-Rak (what a surprise)-some ribbon and an vintage easter tag that I found online. I love the bunny! He is so cute!
I glued the egg to the glass on the frame with E6000.
I carefully put it down on the table and told my children not to touch it.
Then I had to pick of the dried glue and try again.
Yea-I so love my children when they touch things that they are not supposed to.
So..this is how turned out.
This is a perfect example of why one should not be inpatient and one should wait until morning to take pics.
This totally surprises you-right?
If you google "free vintage easter images" you can find him in google images.
If you love this little easter picture as much as I do and you have to have it..
You can buy it in my Etsy Store.
I also made some more carrots. So get some of those too!
Have a Happy Night!
PS-I'm on TV on Monday-wish me luck!
