Gothic Arches Challenge Eggs-travaganza

This is my entry for the Gothic Arches Challenge here. We are spending Easter Sunday with friends who have young children and there will be an Easter Egg Hunt. When I saw the challenge I thought this was the perfect opportunity to create an item for the hunt. The images all came from Graphics Fairy (apart from the bird which I drew). I began with the original bird's nest mounted on card and then printed a second nest and glued it on top of the first one. I added seam binding and the pocket for the egg hunt clues was ready.
The cards for the clues for the hunt are printed from Graphics Fairy.
I covered some chipboard in paper for the egg hunt title and tissue and glitter for the dangling eggs. Yellow ricrac at the bottom and pale pink ribbon for the dangling eggs.
Now all I have to do is hide the eggs and write the clues...
