3 Dimensional Paper Eggs

Have some fun this season by creating these cut 3-d eggs using your favorite paper.  They are easy to make and go perfectly with any spring or Easter décor.  Lay them around or place them in a basket.  No matter how you use them they will bring a reminder of the new spring season to everyone.

1

Begin by creating a template on a piece of scrap paper using the Fiskars Oval Shape Template.  As you move towards the top of the oval, which will be the top of the egg, slightly curve inward to create the egg shape.  The easiest way to do this is to use the guide line on the template.  Start the curve at the 4th line down from the side with the straight edge.    They don’t have to be perfect.

2

Draw several different sized egg shapes for a variety.   Cut the templates out with a pair of scissors.

3

Now, trace them onto various pieces of cardstock and patterned paper (Dear Lizzy Serendipity by American Crafts shown).

4

You will have a variety of eggs when you have finished these steps. At this point, you can clean up the edges if you have any rough edges and you can add ink to the edges for a highlight.  This step is completely optional, but gives a nice finished look to each egg.

6

Score each egg in the middle using a scoring board (Martha Stewart’s shown) to get a crisp score line.  Make sure that the top of the oval is centered so that your fold will not be off and turn out looking more like an oval than an egg shape.

7

Fold each piece in half and add a line of adhesive from a tape runner to one side.

8

Stack the pieces together making sure that they are lined up evenly.

9

Add one last strip of adhesive to the last side and adhere the egg together.  Manipulate them so that they are fully opened.  Repeat the steps to create the rest of the eggs.

Enjoy creating some eggs this spring season.  They make great decorations for any spring décor.  Create a hand woven basket to keep them in for more fun. You can find my tutorial for Patterned Paper Basket Weaving here!

About Peg

Peg Rounds lives in East Moline, Illinois with her husband and best friend, Kevin and their son Josh and 2 dogs. She was an elementary school teacher turned stay at home mom, and later a home school mom. Over the years, she designed cakes on the side and went to school to become a certified chocolatier. She always has loved to craft since she was young and it was something that she wanted to be doing, but set it aside due to her busy life. After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
