Step-by-Step Instructions to Make the Zig Zag Paper Egg Craft
Let’s start the project by creating Paper strips for the Egg Craft. Use a paper trimmer to cut strips that are approximately 1cm wide. While scissors can be used, a paper trimmer makes this process more efficient.
Alternatively, you can purchase Pre-cut Paper strips for added convenience.
Download the Free Egg template provided at the end of the post and print it on 120 GSM paper. The page includes two egg templates; cut it in half and start with one template.
The egg template features horizontal reference lines, serving as a guide for creating the zig-zag pattern. Apply glue to the top segment and adhere the paper strips in a zig-zag fashion, folding the strip between the lines.
Once you reach the end, trim any excess paper. Repeat the process for the next segment.
With a bit of practice, kids can easily master this folding style, promoting fine motor skills development.
Continue sticking the paper strips in a zig-zag Fashion until the entire egg is covered.
Now, cut the egg out. The base outline is slightly visible through the white paper.
You can also flip the paper over and cut along the egg outline seen from the backside.
Your Zig-Zag Egg is Ready! Create as many as needed for decoration and enjoy the craft! If you find this idea egg-straordinary, Pin this blog for future reference.
