how do you make sure the egg itself doesn't crack?

pmbalice (author)Lt. Duct Tape2008-10-03

I have a thin tip scissor I make a small hole in the side of the egg and I slowly make short cutting in an oval on the side of the egg.

In the metallic butterfly I put a small hole in the bottom and top. The bottom hole is a little larger the the top hole. The blow out the egg.
