very cool idea I will have to try this. I am going to start hard boiling eggs all year round but they are easier to keep track of if they are colored. Plus it is fun. I will try this soon.

Not yet! I had planned to when my son visits but he changed the plans for now. I will share a picture when I do! Have a beautiful day!

Pretty...but way too much trouble!

It's no trouble at all and very quickly done.

Cool! It would be fun to try this with different textured paper towels :)

Yes that was what I was thinking too. Next time I make sure I have some different ones.
