Easter Blog Hop -

Hello Friends -
I hope you are having a great weekend!

Welcome if you have not stopped by the Tool Shed before! Please become a follower and let me know you were here.

If you came from Mary Ann - http://scrappingg.blogspot.com/ you are hopping along the list.

These holidays are just coming too fast for me this year!

I purchased a package of paper mache eggs at Michaels and decided to make them my project for the day and not save them.  I did a few of the eggs with paper that I will share another day because they did not look very Easter-like.

First I painted the eggs with white acrylic paint.



Then I ripped half inch pieces of paper tape and randomly but thoughtfully placed them on the eggs for the 2 polka dot ones.  For the diagonal lined egg, I ripped pieces and matched them up around the egg.  I was not thinking . . . I did not take any photos of the process.  I was actually having fun!  And I thought the big polka dot tape would not turn out very well.  But it was my favorite overall . . . and super easy.

Paper Tape Eggs

Happy Easter!
