Create Your Own Faux Fabergé Egg!

A Fabergé egg is a jeweled egg created by the House of Fabergé between 1885 and 1917. The first Fabergé egg was crafted for Tsar Alexander III, who had decided to give his wife, the Empress Maria Fedorovna, an Easter egg in 1885.
 
DT Nancy @ The Nickel Nook created her own Faux Fabergé eggs using the Paper Egg svg from MyScrapChick and they are as beautiful as the originals in my opinion. Take a look....
 
 
The egg is 2 pieces and simple to put together. After assembling the parts and inking the edges, Nancy painted a wood candle stick, inked the edges too and hot glued the egg to the top.
 
 
Check out Nancy's blog at The Nickel Nook for all the assembly details and see how she embellished her lavish paper Faberge Egg.
 
She loved the first one so much she had to make another and it's over the top beautiful too. 
 

For this one Nancy put the egg on a wood candle cup turned upside down and painted it with yellow acrylic paint. She added a bit of pink ink to the candle cup before gluing it to the bottom of the finished egg.
 

 Nancy's colors and choice of designer papers are so beautiful she's making the Easter bunny jealous.  See how she did her finishing touches to the tops of the egg.
