A half dozen eggs

I have been experimenting with more paper punched eggs. I have a flower punch that is relatively small 
so I figured I'd give it a try.
Click here to see my other paper punched Easter 
eggs and for a mini tutorial.
The only thing I did differently with these eggs is I painted the foam eggs a pastel turquoise before pinning the paper petals.

I picked up a cute little glass stand at Winners that I thought was perfect for spring and while grocery shopping I snagged an awesome 6 egg holder for .94 cents! The eggs look sweet in both displays.

Here are a few pics...

These are so pretty, Sarah! I own the exact same egg holder from the Superstore and never thought to display my textured eggs or paint chip eggs in it for photos. Your eggs make it look so sophisticated :)

As soon as I read Winners I knew you must be a Canadian blogger.

Glad I found out about your Tuesday link party - I'm off to read your original tutorial for punched eggs.
