Easter Egg swap

Hello everyone. I know I'm a little late on this one, but that's how things have been going! I was just recently in a decorated Easter Egg swap over at A Little Scrap Of Heaven, My partner was Brittany, and here is the cute paper machete egg that she decorated for me. Thank you Brittany, it's really beautiful.

Here is the one that I made for her.

I made mine by hollowing out part of a Styrofoam egg, painted it with white gesso, and coated it with glitter glue. I added strips of ribbon across the sides and back, and attached flower sequence and pearls. I wish I would have took a pic of the back, because you can't see the ribbon. I then added moss inside, and this cute little ceramic bunny that I found at Joanne's just before Easter in the clearance bin, it came in a set of three, so I'll have more to make something with in the future. I added lace and flowers that I had in my stash, and the bow on top, I made with my Bow-It-All. I wanted to have it stand up, so I made a base for it using a strip cut from a cereal box, added pink card stock to it, and lace, then attached it to the bottom.

I really enjoyed making this Easter Egg for Brittany, and I hope she likes it.
