How to Make the Perfect Paper Egg
Hi! It's Easter Egg time! Nope, it's not Easter yet and it's not going to be the real eggs. It's Paper Eggs!!! How many of us have a hard time making an easter egg card, or easter egg shape paper pieces.... MEEEEE!!! I told myself how hard is it to make one because it's not an even circle. Then "Ding.. ding"!!! Circles.
I brought out circle punches, tested which circle proportion will go together! On a flat reference, I found a 3/4" circle differences of 2 circles, between the tip of an egg from the bottom of an egg, to figure out the curvature of a whole egg. Don't ask me, it's Calculus (per my dad, whose the most intelligent, smartest and wisest person I've ever known).
So, I got my 1/2" Circle punch and my 1-1/4" circle punch and put the punch pieces together. Then drew lines connecting both circles. Voila!!! AN EGG!!!
TIP: Sponge the edges to cover some cutting inperfections :)
