When it comes to announcements, this was the best I have ever received. It was so much fun to get and open, I just wanted to share it with you. I hope you have as much fun making it, as I did receiving it.
- Shipping box
- filler for shipping box and gift box
- gift box
- paper for notes
- paint, or dye
To start, you will need to use a needle with your raw egg and make a slit in the side to get the whites and yolk out of. Once the egg shell is empty you need to let it dry out at least a day.This picture was taken after we had opened the egg. It did not look cracked, just a slit. Then it was painted on the inside and out. Glitter was added to the outside before the dye dried.
A note expressing the arrival of the baby, adopted or just pregnancy date is printed and rolled up and put into the egg through the slit.You place the egg with the note inside of it, into the gift box with a note glued to the inside of the lid saying “crack me open” Then you tie the lid closed on the gift box and place it into the choice of shipping material.Bring the shipping material up over the gift box, so the recipient must dig to find the gift box.Then tape the box closed Now it is ready to be addressed and shipped. As the recipient of this announcement, “What a wonderful way to find out the long awaited for, happy news”. It brought both myself and husband to tears.
I hope you have fun making this. Would love to hear your story.
Granny to be again 🙂
