This week’s MotD theme: Instructables in the Round

This adorable little round instructable comes from crafter Jamsuda of Qatar, and only requires a few simple items: an empty eggshell (which she shows you how to empty!), glue, scissors, color paper, beads, and a quilling tool (you could use tweezers or make a tool). I love the delicateness of this piece and all the circular (mandala) shapes of the pink paper rosettes.

From her instructables post she states:

There are many awesome uses for the shells, after you’ve already enjoyed the egg. The egg shell is a pretty great craft item, especially for those beautiful mosaics or decorative Easter Eggs. Today in this “ibel” I am going to share a new idea on how to use egg shells in a different way.

Inspiration for Today

Jamsuda’s flower bouquet inspires us to take the ordinary (egg) and make it extraordinary (unique flower decoration).

Happy Coloring!
