Easter Egg Mini Book
Using Cleo Crafts Pastels Mini Kit.
I used an old dog food box in place of chipboard to keep costs down.
An empty cereal packet would do the same job.
I drew , freehand, an Easter Egg shape onto the cereal packet.
I cut that one out and used that as a template to draw and cut out more.
You need 6 egg shapes in total
Once you have the egg shapes, use them to draw templates on the paper.
Before you begin to cover the egg shapes, use a sanding file to smooth any rough edges from cutting.
Be sure to use different papers to ensure that you have varied papers to cover the front and reverse sides of the egg shapes
Once covered the egg shapes should look like this
Not included in the mini kit, but easy to make with a stencil and another sheet from a cereal packet
I used chipboard alpha letters EASTER covered in Lil' Davis Glitter Glaze.
You could use paint or the remnants of the papers from the kit to cover the alphas.
Once dried the letters are stuck, one on each egg
Then I embellished the eggs using the brads and fabric flowers from the mini pastels kit and using some additional Anitas sticky ribbons.
The whole reverse side of the egg is left blank for photos while the top part of the egg could be used for journalling.
Finally I punched two holes in each egg with my cropadile, you could use any punching tool.
I threaded very long lengths of ribbon through to bind the book together, the length enables the whole page to be turned and used without restriction.
