In an earlier post I said that I'd share how I created my spun cotton vignette inside a real goose egg.....and here's my little tutorial.
Starting with a collection of large goose eggs that were in need of cleaning and sterilizing by blowing out the contents and soaking in a bleach solution.
As you can see, I penciled an oval shape for the cut out.
After sacrificing and egg to breakage, I found that the tool that worked the best is a dremel with a diamond cutting tip. So I first scored on my pencil line and then went on with the cutting while holding my dremel at a slight angle.
I made my little spun cotton bunny over a mini wire armature and placed it on a small cardstock disk, which I then used tweezers to insert and glue inside the egg.
When all trimmed out with vintage posies, ric-rack,ribbon,flocking....my finished egg was immediately grabbed by a collector!
