Ive seen those stands at ben franklin crafts,in different sizes,this is a really nice project,my question is where do you get the butterfly transfer?

The stand come with a porcelain egg I bought at an art fair here in Minnesota and I use it to display and take pictures of my egg art.
how do you make sure the egg itself doesn't crack?

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.
