Hello! Welcome to the Friday Focus at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. It's Nancy, and I have the privilege of sharing my love of Maja Design Papers with you. Today it is all about the paper. In honor of the Friday Focus Linda is offering an additional 15% discount on all Maja Design Products at The Funkie Junkie Boutique for the next two weeks!
My intention is to show you as many of their beautiful patterns and collections as possible in one project. A series of ATC's came to mind, but I with the beauty of spring all around, my thoughts drifted to Easter eggs. I have something new for you: ATE's, aka Artist Trading Eggs! Each one is a bit similar, but also a bit different. Each one gives you a glimpse of a different paper or collection from Maja Design. These little ATE's will make the perfect addition to any Easter basket or spring decor.
Of course, it is impossible to include every collection and every pattern. For that I would need to do post every day for the next couple of years (or more!). What it comes down to is that you can't go wrong with Maja Design products. They manufacture the most high quality, unique, and versatile papers I've ever worked with. The colors are rich and brilliant. The collections are designed to work together, so you can mix and match to your heart's content. Each gorgeous sheet is double sided and durable. I sew on them, distress them, apply moisture, and bake them regularly and they can stand up to every thing I throw at them.
You'll find a complete supply list for this project at the bottom of the post. The flower tutorial for this project (Wildflowers in Winter) can be found here on the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Once you have assembled your flowers you are ready to assemble your eggs.
If you don't have an egg die, the free online pattern for the egg can be found here with many thanks to whataboutmimi.com! You can resize the pattern in your photo editing software as needed. Cut one egg from chipboard and another from a piece of Maja Design patterned paper. Adhere the patterned paper egg to the chipboard egg.
Now for the really fun step. Embellish as desired! Adhere your chosen sentiment, flower, leaves, or whatever flourish dies you have on hand. Personalize each egg in any way you wish. You can even place names on them and use them as place cards at a spring dinner table. Below are several additional photos of completed eggs.
Thank you so much for joining me! I hope you'll enjoy Maja Design Papers as much as I do. Don't forget to take advantage of the additional 15% discount on all Maja Design Products at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. It's the perfect time to stock up!
