I made this egg and filled it with a very old painted porcelain egg that I have had for years. I am thrilled because it is also environmentally safe and non-toxic as I used homemade cornstarch as the stiffener. Yes, an egg you can eat! Well if you don't mind the 100% cotton thread (perhaps I should sugar coat them?).

Couple more views. The back has a "window" so you can peek inside.

LOL, purple is Tasha's favorite color so thinking one would go to her of course that is what I started with. Course she really isn't into this kind of stuff, but she'll take one for free if given to her!!!

What size are these eggs, please? Years ago, there used to be something we called 'angel dust', similar to glitter but no color, just looked sparkly! We used it for Christmas ornaments and such...

They are 4" high by 6" long when closed and there is a good amount of space to fill with goodies.
I spray my angels with glitter spray, but haven't used it on the eggs.
