I love Japanese paper but I often end up with lots of leftover paper scraps or pieces of unused origami paper. What can I make with origami paper that isn’t origami? How about this awesome Easter themed craft of hollow paper eggs!
The materials I used were:
â€¢one hollowÂ eggshell
â€¢Â Nori Paste (a great slow-drying water soluble glue perfect for paper projects)
â€¢Â origami paper
What’s the difference? The inexpensive origami paper is thinner, and is basically like a color photocopy of the real Yuzen and Chiyogami paper, which is silkscreened by hand with individual layers of paint, on a higher quality handmade “rice paper” (it’s actually made from the mulberry plant). Make sure to order the 5 7/8″x 5 7/8″ size.
Here are the directions and photos on how to make a decoupage Easter egg:
