Japanese Washi Paper Eggs

I love Japanese paper so when I heard about this exotic use for it – decopauging it onto hollowed eggshells – I knew I had to try – this papercraft is perfect for Easter, too. Using some tutorials online I got the general idea and then I figured most of it out on my own. The materials I used were one hollow eggshell, Nori Paste (a great slow-drying water soluble glue perfect for paper projects) and origami paper. Paper Source also has some beautiful Japanese chiyogami and yuzen paper in large sheets that you could cut down.

Here are the directions on how to make a decoupage easter egg with photos:
