Quick -n- Easy Easter Egg Holder

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With Easter coming in just days, I have a cute little egg holder to share with you.  It is quick and easy plus you can decorate it with your favorite designer paper, or let the kids help you … yes, they are that easy.

You will start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  You will want to score at 1″ … then 3-3/4″ then 4-3/4″ and finally 7-1/2″. Use your bone folder to press down your score lines, they are much crisper and sturdier.

You can punch or die cut your circle (egg hole) between the first 1″ score line and the 3-3/4″ score line. The size punch or circle die will depend on your eggs! You can set you egg inside a die or punched hole … it should not go further than half way.  That 1″ flap will also be the edge you will take to secure the holder together.

The next 1″ score line is where your first piece of designer paper will go: 2-7/8″ x 7/8″  The back flap (when folded up) will get the second piece of designer paper: 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8 … you won’t need it to fill then entire piece because part of it will be covered up when you glue it together.

Think of the fun you can have … any color cardstock, Dino Days Designer Paper or anyone of our beautiful florals, you could even use the dies cuts or stickers from your Paper Pumpkin kits!  My egg holder is more subtle … I used the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper, the colors and mosaic look reminded me of Easter.

Thank you for checking out my blog post today, and I hope you give these quick -n- cute little Easter Egg holders a try.

Have a fun & creative day ~
