Spring Decorating

It's less than a week to Easter, and I'm working on a spring configuration box. I wanted to share with you one of eggs I made to go inside.

I picked up some paper mache eggs at the craft store. I ran a thick line of the Best Glue Ever over the egg and using my fingers, smoothed it out to cover one side. The best part of this glue is that you really only need a thin coat!

After the glue was on I used small pieces of tissue paper from 7gypsies to cover the egg. To make this project run smooth, tear your tissue paper before using the glue! If you need to overlap tissue, place a small dab of glue on the egg before smoothing the ends down.

After my egg was covered I lightly dusted any sticky spots with the Perfect Crafting Pouch then used a loose brush to clean off the egg. Isn't is beautiful?! 

I like it just as it is, but it would also be nice sprayed with a light coat of Perfect Pearls Mist to give it a bit of shimmer.

Love how this project turned out! I too use the pouch to get any sticky stuff off my project. Such a life saver - TFS :)
