Has anyone tried to make the Eggs covered in Washi Paper (Japanese patterned paper)?  I've found sites that show how to make them and they are beautiful. I found on line order sites for the paper, but I'd love to get in touch with a person who's made them and who might be able to tell me where I can actually go in person to buy the paper, what patterns are the best (it looks like small patterns would look best) ect.  These are just beautiful and I am anxious to get started. I am new to this site and axnious to hear from someone about this. Thanks.

I got obsessed with these this Easter. I saw some selling at a fair for $$$ and thought, hey I could do that! Used the instructions I found online various places. I couldn't find "official" washi paper so I just used origami paper from the art store. It worked just fine. The art store also had little metal findings that I glued on the top of the eggs, and put a christmas tree ornament hanger through, and I hung 'em up all over the place. I got so obsessed I made about three dozen of these in the weeks around Easter.

I love them! I made a bout a dozen a few years back with origami paper anf mod podge. It was pretty easy. Look on the Martha Stewart site. She has the directions there.
