Crafty Egg Heads – FREE downloadable paper craft

April 5, 2012

Free craft project

Easter is a great time for craftiness. So I thought I’d design a little paper craft for you, lovely readers. You don’t have to have kids for this one. You may just want to decorate your window sill or Easter table. But kids will enjoy  it too, and as long as they’re scissor savvy, then they can handle it. For more precise cutting use an Exacto knife. (Not so much the kids though, obviously!) I used my Swann & Morton scalpel, but I doubt many of you have one of those lying around. I got mine in the UK where they sell them at decent art shops. If you do a lot of precision cutting it’s an invaluable tool. I’d say it is one of my most used tools, if not my all time fave. My doctor friend, J, keeps me well-stocked with blades. I think if I asked my actual doctor for scalpel blades she may give me a frowny eye stare. But I digress…

The first download is the more obvious Easter fare: Bunny & Chicken faces for your eggies. Although I have to say the chicken is rather ridiculous looking. He made me chuckle though, so I threw him in for good measure. He looks more like a super-hero chicken to me, but you be the judge…

Then I got doodling while I was on the phone to a client. My doodles turned into these. I wonder whether while we stand with the fridge door open, trying to remember what it is we’re looking for, as we  stare at the eggs, that the eggs are in fact staring back at us? You might think not, but I bet next time you look at them, now you’ll wonder. Heh heh. I can’t exactly call these Easter decorations. But hey, they’re on eggs, and so there you go.  Love the way they look like they’re in Disguise on this pattern.

"Eggs in Disguise." (Guess I'm on a nerdy specs tangent these days.)

Lastly one for all those girlie girls. I’m not a big fan of the Princess paraphernalia, but I spent enough time designing shoes for Robeez to know that you always have to have a princess option in the mix. Here is that option…

Click on these to download the files. Print them out on card stock and get cutting. Take care if you’re using a sharp knife, though. You’ll need all your fingers for the Easter Egg hunt on Sunday.

    Ah, that was sooo much better than the traditional egg painting routine, haha! Love it! Eggs staring back at you from the fridge, yes, thank you :)

    And as I suppose you all know: “yhank you” means “thank you”… (Sorry about that one, I’m Norwegian, can’t get it all right every time??)
