Wooo Hooo!! Handmade Easter Eggs!

Well it took over a month but I was finally able to make my honeycomb paper eggs!! I ordered the dies (and a few other goodies!) from one company....
Ten different sizes!

And I ordered the honeycomb paper (and a few other goodies!) from another company. I ordered BOTH on the same day. The dies came in in about a week. The paper? Over three weeks!!!! It just arrived yesterday! UGH! It was sent Priority Mail, but they had a computer generated mail label, and didn't have any of those bright, Priority Mail stickers on it....so it came SAM!!! (Space Available Mail - the SLOWEST!!!)
Large packages, in lovely spring colors!

All so I could make THIS!!!
***SQUEAL!!!***
Recipe:
Stamps: Once Upon A Time, Papillion Potpourri
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, white honeycomb paper
Ink: Pretty in Pink
Accessories: 1/8" Pretty In Pink ribbon, glue dots, Bitty Banner framelit, sponge dauber, large butterfly punch, small butterfly punch, sticky strip

I'm going to make a bunch more up, and then let Bella stamp the butterflies and punch them out to decorate them. She's going to be so excited when she sees this hanging on her vanity, when she gets home from school today!!!

The things that are availagle now! I had never heard of honeycomb paper. I might have to order those dyes and paper for next year and make my very own Easter Tree. You are right, Bella is going to love this.
