Surprise eggs

I used this tutorial for surprise eggs from not martha last year and they were a big hit.

I stamped letters directly on the eggs rather than on slips of paper. I cracked a couple during the process, but not too many.

It's an easy project, but leave yourself plenty of time for them to dry. As in, make them right now and let them dry until Friday or Saturday to be absolutely sure of things. Because damp jelly beans are depressing.

  15. @ Jules and boutiqueofthoughts - It's actually a huge brass tray that my parents bought in Egypt years ago (we lived in Cairo for a while when I was a baby!). My mom found a table base that fits it, so it's used as a coffee table. And it has a glass cover over it, which dramatically reduces how often you have to polish it.
