This is part of my line "The Confection Collection" ©. All of the eggs are now completely made. I have one more of this size and one slightly smaller than this. Each one is signed, and is entirely unique. I have made three of the larger size (one has already sold) - and one slightly smaller - most likely - no more will be made.
This is a hand painted and glittered paper mache egg. On the outside there are raised felt flowers, glittered tulips, and ric rac covering the seams - just like the icing does on a real sugar egg!
The front is securely hinged with vintage white lace trim and then tied in a bow. The other side ties closed with the same vintage trim in a sweet little bow. With the way I fixed the lace to hinge this particular egg - I made sure it 'peeked' over the top edge inside - so you can see the lace edge the whole way around the inside seam - which makes for a really cute detail.
The bottom lies flat and is covered in felt and has a signature card.
Inside - The bottom half of the egg is painted a grass green, the top is painted blue with white clouds. The 'floor' of the egg is covered in yellow paper easter grass. The viewing part (or larger section) of the egg has a nest with a bright fabric bird and egg snuggled inside. Behind the bird in nest is display of yellow, pale green and purple ranunculus..
The front section of the egg has a bright pink ranunculus nestled in yellow paper Easter grass
The egg is 10"(25.4cm) long and 6" (15.2cm) tall. Circumference is 20.5" (52.1cm).
Made with lots of love and imagination this egg is something to be enjoyed and treasured by young and old alike.
