For some reason I fell in love with Martha's decoupage eggs. I liked everything about them, but knew there was no way I was blowing out emu eggs. First, I don't have emu eggs. Second, there is no way I will be careful enough to keep a blown out emu egg from shattering before next year. I looked online to see if I could find wooden ones, but the largest I came across where goose eggs. I ended picking up goose eggs at Michael's for less and didn't have to pay for shipping!
Once I had the eggs home with me, I realized that I was crazy. In no way were those decoupaged eggs my style, and really, where was I going to find botanicals like that?
"Vinyl! I can use vinyl."
(crazy look from husband)
"On my eggs, I can put vinyl on my eggs!"
He had no idea what I was talking about, but it didn't matter. I knew.
I pulled out my trusty Silhouette SD (love that thing!) and started cutting. When my boys hear it start cutting they come running. It has a very distinct sound and they love watching it work, so I try to only use it during the day when they are awake. Otherwise they get out of bed to join me.
