Squirt paint all over the shaving cream. Using the pointy end of a paint brush, drag it through the shaving cream and paint making straight lines back and forth. Then do it again, but this time go up and down. The shaving cream will start to get a marbleized look to it. Take your Card Stock and cut them into egg shapes. Take your egg shapes and press them on the shaving cream adding a little pressure so it goes into the paint and shaving cream well. Take the Card stock out of the shaving cream and let sit. Using some sort of scraping tool scrape all of the shaving cream off of the paper. Let the paint dry for a bit and then your project will be ready to be put on display!

5. Glitter Eggs

Fill one of the cups with about ¾ inch of glue and each remaining cup with about ½ centimeter of glitter. Cover the rounded, bottom half of the egg in the glue. Turn egg slightly to get a good coating of glue. Lift egg out of glue and let any excess drip off. Twist bottom half of egg in glitter until an initial layer of glitter covers the glue. Sprinkle and pat extra glitter onto the egg, using your fingers, to cover sparse areas and smooth out any clumps. Stand egg upright in cup until the glue is fairly dry. Transfer to a paper plate or similar surface to continue drying. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each shade of glitter, and watch your eggs shimmer.
