Plastic Easter Eggs with Ribbon

I wanted to play around with plastic Easter eggs this year, but I wasn't sure what to do.  Last year, when there was an egg contest going on, I experimented with blowing out the insides from real eggs and then trying to poke holes into the shell so I could cross stitch on it.  That failed miserably, but then, this year, I thought, why not do it with plastic eggs.  Then I thought, why not use ribbon instead since it will be more bold and noticeable.  Then this happend.

(I stabbed myself in the thumb :( with the exacto and it was hard to thread the ribbons through the holes, so I would not suggest this for kids at all.  Oh, and there is a drill involved, so that's a no-no for kids too.)

Very decorative & festive for Easter! These will last for years. I hope your thumb is o.k. I seem to be prone to finger injuries too. Luckily, they have some pretty cool band-aids on the market. :)
Happy Easter!
