Lovely. Different way to decorate eggs rather than coloring it.

Very Pretty and imaginative, but instead of double sided tape, I wonder how well a glue stick would work? Or Mog Pog? Does the tape leave lumps?

thank you! I think all your suggestions would work. No, the take didn't leave any lumps.

is a normal egg okay?

Yes, but it would be best to blow out the yolk before you decorate the egg.
