Altered Easter Egg

Easter is almost here and I was just wondering what to do with my growing stash of washi tapes when I found foam eggs at the local art supplies store. All you need to do is pick two or three matching tapes in your stash and cut them into little triangular pieces.

Keep going until the entire egg has been covered. Go with the flow and don’t worry about aligning the tapes !! I left a small gap between each piece of tape but you can do whatever you fancy.
