Easter Egg Home Decor using the Silhouette

I saw this egg with the heart center and just HAD to turn it into a home decor piece for Easter! I'm up on the Echo Park Paper blog today with a project that is really quick and easy!

I sized the egg and heart on my Silhouette for a 5x7 photo frame insert. The egg was 4.248” wide after I sized it. I cut it out of the Carta Bella cardstock and then trimmed it to a 5x7 piece with the egg centered. So before you cut it make sure that the egg is not top left of your mat so that you have enough room to center it afterwards. Cut out the heart out of the Orange/Pink cardstock. 

I then cut a bunch of .5” strips from the 6x6 paper pad to go behind the egg cut out. I added adhesive and laid them down.

Use a White Gel Pen to faux stitch around the edge of the heart and use alphas to write “Easter” on it. Pop it with foam dimensional tape and pop it in your frame! 

Now you have a super cute framed piece for Easter that took less than an hour start to finish! It also makes a great kid’s project - for them to help lay down the strips. My 2.5 year old was enthusiastic about helping!
