Adorable Paper Punched Easter Eggs

Was surfing the net for cool stuff - like I usually do when I ran across this awesome and EASY tutorial for the Paper Punched Easter Egg

I got really excited because I recently bought a bunch of awesome scrap booking paper at Tuesday Morning for $1.99 - $2.99 PER PACKAGE!  I spent like $60...

Anyway, this project is so easy and fun.  All you need is:
Styrofoam eggs
Head Pins
5/8" Paper Punch
Decorative Paper (I also think it would be fun to use recycled wrapping paper)
I found this awesome project at Nikki, In Stitches
