Balloon dies into Easter eggs

Pin It
Hi guys, Ive been playing with my balloon die set which I purposely bough to use for eggs, I didn't want to but a die set that was just eggs and only use them once a year so the Nesting Balloons die set from QuicKutz was a great alternative and now I can get two uses from them and use them all year round. This is so easy to do using a long ribbon or pretty thread I glued the balloons the same length apart. To glue them on I used the flap end of the balloon to my advantage and folded it over my thread then to cover the back glue another balloon on with the flat cut off and you have a very quick simple Easter egg garland... see the video below

I hope you have enjoyed this tip.
Blessings to you
and a last thought

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full”
(John 10:10, NIV)

I also made one from crochet, you can find the pattern for the crochet egg garland here http://www.mamamichie.com/2011/03/easter-egg-garland-tutorial/
