I also designed a bonus sheet of the Cherub Eggs:
Inspired by soldering and Dresden Tin Foil, here is how I decided to embellish my eggs:
Here is a picture of the back side, I chose to cover those with Spring Sheet Music from Knick of Time:INSTRUCTIONS:
- Print on cardstock (I used Canon Matte Photo Paper (160g).
- Attach each sheet to thin cardboard (cereal box) with spray glue
- Attach sheet music printed on regular (80g) printer paper to the reverse side
- Cut out the individual eggs
- Cut 3 cm wide strips of metallic foil (mine is gold, but various colors are available!)
- Score down the middle of each strip
- Punch the strips with an edge punch (mine is from Martha Steward) on both sides, make sure you align the patterns
- Fold each strip down the middle
- Cut between each arch, so only a t-h-i-n string of foil keeps the strip together
- Attach the strip to the egg. I attached the first and the last arch with hot glue, starting on the reverse side. Then I used clear craft glue applied with a toothpick to glue down all the other arches.
- Flip your egg to the front side and glue down the strip. I used the clear craft glue applied with a toothpick.
- Punch holes and string your egg. I used a golden tinsel pipe cleaner, but you can use anything you like.
- Hang and TA-DAH: you have “soldered” Easter Egg hangers 🙂
Here is a few pictures from my process:
