Easter Egg Theme with Stampendous


It's Easter Egg Hunt week with Stampendous and today I'm sharing along with some of my fellow design teamies to give you the hunt for some cute projects that can be done in a jiffy for Easter.

I decided to make these little Egg Cup stands. At first I thought, "Oh, I can add cut a strip of paper across the bottom and they can be used for table place eggs." Nice thought until I cut the strip just from the paper between each stamped image. Good thought, I won't have to glue it on? What I'm really trying to say is I should have measured around a real egg to get the correct length strip. If you decided to make these sweet little egg cups, you now know what to change. :)



These little chicks were photographed using my cell phone, because the battery charger for my real camera isn't charging it anymore. I'm impressed that it looks this good. My how phone camera's are improving.

If you want instructions, please head on down towards the bottom of the post. For now there are some other designers anticipating your arrival to see their Egg Hunt projects. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. That is a great idea! I love this stamp. How about gluing a belly band around the egg.
