Easter Egg Ornament Template Tutorial

Check out my newest 3-dimensional box, the Easter Egg Ornament Template!  It is a great alternative to a HUGE Easter basket, because you can just put some jelly beans and chocolates, plus maybe a gift card or jewelry in the box and you’re done!  It’s a pretty and special gift without the plastic grass.  PLUS, this Easter Egg can be used for non-Easter themed gifts as well!  Don’t let the name “Easter Egg” put you in a box!

Assembling this cool box might look complicated, but it’s really not too difficult …

I love, love, love them.  Seriously.
I love a plate full of different kinds of cookies to tantalize the tastebuds.  What I don’t like is slaving away in the kitchen as I bake a variety of sweet treats.  It takes me HOURS, people, and it’s super expensive to buy all of the different ingredients for the different types of cookies.  Am I right?
What’s better than slaving away in the kitchen?  How about having a variety of beautiful, yummy cookies delivered to your front door?  That’s what happened …

Tutorial:  Improve the photos of your papercraft projects today!!

I’m a papercraft template designer, so I’m constantly putting together little paper masterpieces and sharing my work online.  I have to tell you, though, getting the photos of my projects to properly represent the delicious hybrid work of art in my hand is very difficult, to say the least.  My project is always so much more vibrant than the photos I take.  It’s sort of disappointing!
Lucky for you, I’ve been at this for over 5 years, and I think I’ve finally got it figured out.
When taking photos of your papercraft, you have …
