Thinking Outside the Yoke- Her Craft Kre8tions 1st DT Post

 Welcome to Her Craft Kre8tions first ever Blog Hop which we are calling Thinking Outside the Yoke. Each Design Team Member was given a paper mache egg and were to transform this into something other than what was given to them originally. Our Design Team is to think outside of the "card" and do something other than cards and layouts. What a challenge .... could you meet this challenge?

Here is my whole Creation! It was a bit of an interesting experience as my egg disappeared from my Craft Room a few days ago, so I had to start over. So I ended up taking an Easter Egg, Paper Mached it, added a bunch of flowers that I had received at a crop that someone didn't want, spiced them up with some jewels, and there you have it!! It reminds me of a hyacinth. I totally stayed true to my Crafting Green Philosophy!

Close up of my Egg:
Please note: Normally I do NOT know the names of all the papers or the other materials I use b/c they are either something I had from years ago, or it's something that has been given to me. 

$$Craft Green to Save Green, my friends$$ 
Make it a habit to use what you already have!
