Musical Eggs!

The rabbit has been in my craft room, again!
I'm very pleased that Miss Phoebe has an interest in music and has started violin lessons at school. I decided to encourage her interest by decoupaging some Easter Eggs with sheet music. I printed some music to use, so Easter Parade became the star! This is the first time I've decoupaged eggs ... hmmm. 
Will it be my last?

I printed an extra sheet to frame so we can create a vignette in our Easter decorating. I placed a cutout vintage card on top of the music. I found the card online. Each of the eggs is embellished with a gemstone ... all eggs need bling ... and a little vintage ribbon.

I did the eggs two ways. I cut the full piece to wrap around using this technique.
I covered a couple eggs with small pieces of music in a crazy quilt technique. I have to say both worked pretty well and I'm content with my first effort's results!

Make sure you take a look at my home page and my other embellished eggs! You might like these, too! I'll be sharing this post with a few of the parties listed on my sidebar. Make sure you take a look and enjoy all the other great ideas.
