#4 Alcohol Ink Easter Egg & Egg Holder

Created this Easter Egg inspired by Tim Holtz. You can click here to see how a white plastic Easter egg can be transformed by watching TH blog video.

You can see first egg I made by clicking here. You can see 2nd egg by clicking here. You can see 3rd egg by clicking here. I changed to silver mixative & this one has a pink look.

I looked all over for egg holders. I have some but they all have eggs displayed on them. Since I did not find I thought why not make my own. Recycled toilet paper rolls for my Easter egg holder. First I cut the toilet paper roll to be able to flatten it somewhat. Then I used red adhesive tape which is better than other adhesive for holding together. Measured some scrapbook paper & attached to the toilet paper roll. 

Made sentiment tag by using Spellbinder dies and Cardz TV stamp.
