Easter Egg Planet
Inspired by Jeffery Rudell's post, Oeuf Couture: How to Dress an Easter Egg, I couldn't stop all the ideas that kept cropping up (see previous Easter Egg Spaceship).
This is a black box about 5.5 inches squared. The letters are cut from metallic silver vinyl.
The black paper is Canson Mi-Tientes. The simple purple ribbon helps to open the lid and foreshadows a hint of Easter without giving too much away.
...that's no sphere – it's an egg!
It comes apart – the ring is cut from Stardream metallic silver cardstock (got mine at Paper Poet) and simply rests on top of the egg. The egg is held aloft with a trimmed skewer stick that's been blackened with a marker.
I used Pearl Posca metallic markers to dot stars in the background. I would have used yellow but my set didn't come with one. It's about as Easter as I could make it.
I used this Pittsburgh punch set to make a hole for the skewer.
To prevent the skewer from skewing, I glued this rolled tube of cardstock below the galaxy backdrop. You may have noticed the backdrop being draped - that's so it photographs better without a distracting corner line.
If you're inspired to make Oeuf Couture too, I hope you'll let me know!
