I have a simple craft to share with you today using one of my favorite crafting supplies – washi tape! Seriously, I love this stuff. It has become a problem. I have so much it is bordering on hoarding. I buy the majority of my washi tape from Pick Your Plum. It is a daily deal site, so they don’t always have it available. However, when they do, it is always a great price and I stock up.

Washi Tape Easter Egg
Recently I purchased some spring washi tape from Pick Your Plum*. I knew I wanted to do something with it right away!
*Note: Pick Your Plum no longer is in business. Here is a pretty selection of spring pastel washi tape from Michaels. This variety pack of washi tape from Hobby Lobby is also really good.
To create the egg shape I used my Cricut. I cut the egg 7″ tall because I knew I wanted to put it in an 8″ x 10″ frame. You could also cut the shape out by hand if you don’t have a die-cutting machine.
Once you have your egg shape cut out, start laying strips of washi tape across the egg, lining up each new piece with the previous one.
Turn the egg over. Using a cutting mat and your craft knife, carefully cut off the excess washi tape.
I used dimensional squares to attach my egg to the paper I trimmed to 8″ x 10″.
The yellow paper you see here is from the Amy Tangerine Plus One line that I posted about when I created my spring banner.
