How to make

  1. Cut out the egg cups from your egg carton and trim the top to tidy up.

  4. Next, paint the inside. Repeat with another three egg cups.
  5. Cut out the butterfly and the bird from the template sheet.

  7. Glue on the egg cup leaves and the flowers.
  8. Finish off your craft by placing the bird and butterfly on the tree leaves.
