Washi Tape Easter Eggs

We haven’t yet decorated eggs for Easter. We might do it before the weekend as my daughter is off from school Thursday and Friday.  She is very excited to paint and decorate eggs. Yesterday she bought some colored powder and stickers for the eggs but it had to wait!  Anyway, here’s a very easy way to jazz up your eggs which doesn’t require water, coloring, cooking, and all that.  If you’ve got a washi tape, hurray!

What you’ll need:

washi tape


pair of scissors

*I used plastic eggs just for visual purposes. 

What to do:

You can actually do anything you like, in whatever way you want to cut your washi.  I made X, triangles & square shapes.  I also placed the washi around the egg. Get creative!  Do it your own way!

When you’re done cutting your different shapes, stick it to the eggs and you’ve got a decorated Easter eggs!

Easy eh?

Paper Gems

I won’t take credit for this one. I only followed the instructions from Mini Eco which you can find here.

What you’ll need:
A4 paper
A pair of scissors

I thought it would be easy to make but it was a challenge to glue the flaps together!  Lots of cutting and patience are needed in this project but very rewarding.  My kids really liked them, and instead of my initial plan to hang these gems as a decor, they ended up as toys for my kids.  They played pirates and hunted the gems. (:

This other one was used a pendant by my daughter. Cool, eh?
