    I love these. They look so elegant. You could probably make these out of sugar...like the eggs they make out of sugar packed into a mold.

    I have seen them at Michael's craft store, and this looks like a cute idea for packaging jewellery. I will eventually try to make one... that is, after I finish all othe other crafts I have in mind...
