Poppies are one of my favorite Spring flowers. There’s something so eye-catching about how all the flowers sit on top of tall stems. In the Spring I drive by a couple patches of Poppies, one bright red and another that’s salmon colored. I slow down to admire them every time. I haven’t been very successful with growing them but I’m trying again this Spring because I’m so desperate to have some in my garden.
In my last post I showed you my Easter Egg wrap SVG that I created using a leaf motif. Here I’ve designed another egg wrap, this time made up of Poppies.
If you’re looking for an easy way to decorate your eggs this Easter, this is it. All you need is your cutting machine, paper and glue and within minutes you’ll have beautiful eggs to decorate your Easter table. When you’re ready, scroll down to see my video tutorial on how to decorate with my Easter Egg Poppy wrap.
A FEW NOTES BEFORE DECORATING YOUR EGG:
- This egg wrap was designed to fit Extra Large size eggs. The original size of my wrap is 4.5″ x 4.23″, so if your imported SVG is in a different size please resize to these dimensions. Remember to resize your Poppy flowers at the same time.
2. I normally use 65lb cardstock paper for my wraps but the green paper you see in my video is 80lb.
3. If your eggs are in the fridge, leave them out for about 30 minutes to reach room temperature. This way you won’t have moisture from the condensation interfering with your glue.
4. A quick-drying glue is best for this project but if you don’t have any, use regular white glue like I do in my video. Dispense a small amount into a bowl and let it sit out for 5 minutes to let it dry out a little bit. Then you’ll have glue that’s quicker to dry.
5. If you find any dry glue on your finished egg, just scrape it off with an X-acto knife.
