materials

  • Washi tape

  • Waxed paper

  • Craft punches (3-in-1 butterfly punch, by Martha Stewart Crafts, $10, michaels.com)

  • Paper (optional)

  • Pin (optional)

  • Dyed hard-cooked eggs

steps

  1. Start by lining up strips of tape on waxed paper, overlapping them slightly, as shown. (If you use extra-wide tape, one strip should do.)

  2. Next, use punches to cut out designs. If waxed paper is tearing while you are doing this, try punching out the shapes with an extra, plain sheet of paper underneath.
  3. Peel shapes off (using pin, if necessary) and arrange on dyed eggs.
  4. Combine different patterns, and give a few eggs stripes by simply layering on the tape.
