creative inspiration: Silhouette Easter Eggs

Our friend and neighbor Vana Chupp of Le Papier Studio has created an updated version of Easter Eggs inspired by her charming designs. Personalize your Easter Eggs this Sunday with your own silouettes or her's.

Directions: Start by tracing the silhouettes on the contact paper. Once you have all the silhouettes traced, start cutting their outlines with x-acto knife or scissors. Next, peel off the back and stick the silhouette on the egg. Burnish the outside edges with your thumb. This will keep the dye from penetrating - resulting in a sharp silhouette. (tip: I find warm eggs work best with the stickers)Once you're done sticking all the silhouettes on the eggs, start immersing them in the dye. Allow them to sit for about 2-5 minutes until you get a nice saturated color. Remove the egg from the dye and pat it dry with a paper towel. Start to peel the stickers and violá! You just made silhouette Easter eggs!

Ready, set, go ... the Easter Egg hunt is on. Enjoy!
