You might remember that last year there was a little Japanese fad going on at our house… and that when I came across this idea I had to give it a try. A year on, I still have a love for Japanese origami paper. As my recent bunting cards may attest.
I ended up only making one egg last year, the sparkly blue one in the photos (I’d accidentally purchased glitter modpodge) and it is still in good condition a year on.*
You can find the full instructions on how to make them over here.
Mine were more of a slapdash kind of job, not quite as fiddly as Martha suggests, but I think they still turned out quite well. Origami paper works well for this project because it works best with thin paper. We might end up doing them for the MOPS craft this week.
These eggs are fun for the kids to try as well.
Frog was very proud of this one that she & I made below!
Do you do easter crafts? I love any excuse really – adds to the magic maybe…
* the eggs were blown so they’ll last for a long time – as long as you don’t drop them!
P.S. I just had to include this dodgy little photo taken a year ago of Goose & Frog blowing some eggs.
Gorgeous kids – they grow up too fast!
