Here are the steps to create this Faberge' style egg.

I put two small holes on the top and bottom of the egg. Then blow out the yolk.

After paint the egg with blue nail polish, I applied the butterfly transfers and added color with metallic marks

Step 4: Final Step

I glued decorative metal caps on the top and bottom of the egg.

    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.
