Egg Box Tutorial By: Aimee Maddern

Aimee here to show you how to but the 3d egg boxes together!
You can also go to this tutorial here for multiple ideas on how you can close these boxes.
You can really do so much with these eggs. 
Fill a jar, string on lights or use as a garland. fill a basket or add to a wreath.



 Here is a picture of all the eggs I made folded and ready to be glued.


My adhesive of choice is glossy accents.
 I like that you need very little, it’s strong, long lasting and dries very quickly.

     Cut eggs from cardstock
 I copied and pasted an additional egg so I could get 2 eggs from 1 piece of 12x12 card stock




 To fold the egg, start by folding the top crease lengthwise. 
{Some of the eggs are really delicate, and by doing this step first helps the egg from tearing}



   Fold bottom crease lengthwise
 Here you can see I have both creases folded lengthwise


  Fold over the creases at the top of the egg 



     Fold creases at the bottom of egg

    Fold the crease where each egg is connected


  Once all crease have been folded you are ready to put the box together

     The end of the egg has tabs, fold there crease, and insert the tab into the slot provided



 Once egg has been connected at the end to from a box, glue the top creases together. 


Hold for a few seconds while glue dries
You now have a completed egg


Embellish with ribbon, glitter etc. depending on the use of your egg
