Inspired by Russian Fabergé eggs, this project really takes the medium of paper to a whole new level of opulence.

If you can’t tell, I spent a lot of time working in a bunch of elegant little details into this one. And, to make it sparkle, I decided to add a record amount of bling!

Supplies

How to Make It

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the fancy 3D egg pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

 

Assembling the Egg

2. Start with the bottom pieces. These include four pieces with two sections on each, along with an octagon piece, and the gold embellishment sections that have a flat top.

Curl the large sections inwards, and fold along the score lines. Attach the tabs to the inside of the side adjacent to it. Then, attach another section to it. Repeat all the way around.

Attach the octagon to the bottom, and adhere the gold embellishment pieces to each of the eight sides.

 

3. Follow a similar process to build the top portion and connect all eight pieces.

Then, layer the longer, pointed pieces with the corresponding gold embellishments. Once those are put together, attach them to each of the sidewalls of the top egg piece.

Layer the “crown” piece, and use the bottom tab to attach it to the small gold octagon. Then, layer the gold octagon on top of the two larger octagons. Attach it to the top of the egg.

 

Assembling the Base

4. Layer the gold embellishment pieces on the base like so.

Fold the base piece along the score marks, and glue the tabs to the inside of the structure.

 

5. Assemble and attach the pedestal.

Start by curling all of the pedestal sides outward and folding along the score marks. Then, gule each of the tabs to the inside edges.

Use the bottom tabs to attach the pedestal to the base.

 

Finishing Touches

6. Add the bling!

Curl the gold pedal pieces, and attach them at alternating interval around the base.

Use decorative trim and/or adhesive pearls to take the whole piece up a notch. Then, attach the egg to the pedestal!

You’ve got yourself one fancy Easter egg!

I think I’ve said it a thousand times, but Easter is my favorite holiday. So, I really wanted to create something extra special this year—something I’ve never attempted. And even if it gave me a lot more trouble than I anticipated, I am really pleased with the outcome.

    Wow, thank you so much for the exquisite design. I have never seen a more beautiful egg. If my mother were still alive she would be in awe over it, it is stunning. My mother was always finding ways to decorate eggs, not just for Easter but throughout the year. I will be displaying your egg prominently in a glass case for everyone to enjoy all year long. What a treasure you are to share your incredible design with us.
    Thank you again!

    Wow! So beautiful with gold and pearls, not to much just the right amount. Going to start making it tomorrow so it hopefully is done to the 4/4. Have to have something beautiful that special day.

    First, I must say that this is VERY impressive! Of the designs I have looked at, I think this is the best I have seen from anyone, not just your collection!

    I do have a question though. I just finished going through and setting the score lines up, and, I noticed that there is an extra piece behind the top gold overlay panels. I see those cut out in one of your pictures. But, I do not know why they are there unless it is to make the top extra sturdy.

      Thank you Richard! You are so kind.

      Yes, those are decorative pieces that go with the detailed, gold sections of the same shape. They go on top of the top structural section of the egg once it’s assembled.
