We’re egg-static. We’re more than egg-cited. We’re ga ga over all the fun we can have decorating those eggs that seem to be all over the place this time of year. Tips prior to decorating with your LBD scrapbook kit:
Make sure not to forget to hard boil them first.
Remember to be cautious in applying stickers, rub ons, etc. Hard boiled eggs still crack and can still be messy.
Add your base color first (you can use the natural look like Valerie used below or you can go with the white version of the egg and dip them in a liquid dye mixture. They’re available at nearly every retail outlet or you can look up ways to use products from your own pantry to create a cool “color” for your eggs).
Have a few kids on hand to be “egg-cited” about having an Easter egg hunt once your decorating is completed.
Also have a plan for what you’re going to do with all those hard boiled eggs after the fact. Egg salad sandwiches? Potato salad? Deviled eggs?
We challenged Valerie O’Neall, LBD Kit Club Design Team member, to show us what could be done with the March 2012 scrapbook kit, It’s Not a Fling in preparation for a traditional Easter egg hunt. Here’s what she came up with:
And…a close up for more ideas!
Love the cut outs and the use of the trim, and love the identifiers she added using a good scrapbook pen. There’s nothing more classic than an artist signing their work.
