One of my favorite Easter traditions is making and decorating egg carriers. When my Mama was a girl, her friends and family used to give each other their prettiest Easter Eggs in these little carriers. I invited my new neighbor, Zoya Yumiko, and her cousin, Megumi, over to make Easter Egg carriers to share with our friends.
Some of the Egg Carriers come with pretty Russian designs, but some of them are just plain white. You can decorate those.
All you need is an Egg Carrier and some colored pencils, crayons, or markers. You can even use glitter if you want.
Draw all over the Egg Carrier until it's as pretty as you want it to be.
Then, take an Easter Egg and slide it into the Egg Carrier. You're done!
Here's Megumi with a blank one- you can leave them plain white if you'd like.
Here are some up close so that you can see them better!
So here's the big news- I'm having an Egg Carrier contest! All you have to do is save the template below. Print out your template at 5 inches across (it should already be that size) and cut it out. Cut out the pink parts too. (It can be easier to use a hole punch on the handles.)
Decorate your Egg Carrier to your heart's delight, then e-mail a picture of it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also decorate it with photoshop ot whatever image editing program you use. Turn in your designs by April 8th at 9pm Eastern Time. I'll choose a winner on Easter and send the winner a doll-sized Springtime basket with lots of treats, including a doll-sized Uglydoll!
