So let's begin!

Now it's time to hard boil the eggs.

Put 6 eggs in your pan, and fill the pan up with water until the water covers the eggs.
Put on the stove and turn the heat to high.
Wait till the water boils then turn the heat off and let eggs sit in hot water for about 10-15 minutes.

Once the eggs have been sitting in the water, empty the hot water out and put eggs in the food container with ice.
Put in fridge for 15-20 minutes. 

Once the 15-20 minutes have been up, take the eggs out of the container.

I broke an egg by accident, so be sure you make at least one extra in case you break an egg.

Love the sticker idea! Do you think after this, I could put the eggs back in a different color dye to color the white marks?

I would never have thought to use page reenforcing stickers, but they make such a cute pattern! Nice job!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!

Using stickers is genius! So easy and makes such cute designs :)
