diy-painted-stripe-eggs

This egg project that isn't exactly a paper craft, but I made the executive decision to include it because 1. the satin stripes are just so pretty! and 2. cardboard is involved... so technically it counts. :) Head over to Suzonne Stirling's Urban Comfort to learn how to stripe an egg, as found in the April issue of Martha Stewart Living.
