Quilled Paper Eggs

Every year I decorate a few eggs for Easter.  I like to try something new each year.  This year I decided to try quilled paper eggs.

These quilled paper eggs took a long time to finish, but were very simple to make.

I cut pastel colored paper into strips 1/8" x 4.25", using my Fiskars cutter.  I twirled the strips with a small quilling tool, and attached the quilled paper to hollowed eggshells with white tacky glue.

I just love the way they look!

In the past, I have decorated eggs with buttons, embroidery floss, wax resist (pysanky), acrylic paint, and plain old food coloring.

Happy Crafting!
