   Printable Easter egg holders Posted by Chica

It won’t be long before my family will be getting together for the traditional Easter egg dyeing session. We’ll use our usual techniques (read all about it in my previous post on Easter egg dyeing) and my niece will no doubt be digging into the sticker stash for decorating the eggs. I’ll be surprising my family this year, though, with some cute new egg holders that I designed just for the occasion.

I want to share the Easter egg love with you all, so of course I made a downloadable template so you can print your own!

Once you’ve downloaded the template, just print it onto white card stock. (Regular paper isn’t quite sturdy enough — use card stock.) Then cut them out with some fine-point scissors (my favorite is Cutter Bee.)

Be sure to cut along the black notches on either end of the wide band. Then take the two notched tabs and fit them together, closing the loop of the band.

If you fit the notches together just right, you’ll have a smooth finish and no ends showing.

Now just put your dyed (and dried!) eggs in the holders and watch everyone go crazy over the cuteness!

These holders also make really sweet napkin rings for Easter dinner!

Jo had another great idea for these cute little bunnies, chicks, and eggs. Cut the bands off, tape a toothpick to the back, and stand them up on top of a cupcake. What a cute topper that would make!

    These quilling and printables are so cute. You make it look so easy and sounds affordable. I have a quilling kit sent to me and I never used it, maybe it’s time to get it out and try it. Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful ideas. Your tutorial was very helpful. Love your blog and projects.

    Thanks, JaneEllen! Nothing makes us happier than hearing that we’ve inspired our readers to finally start a craft project they’ve been putting off, so I do hope you dig out that quilling kit and give it a whirl. It’s easy and fun :)
