  1. Stick them back-to-back. Punch a hole at the pointy end and tie them onto a painted twig tree placed into a pot
  2. Stick them side-by-side to form an egg-shaped Easter card
  3. Stick them onto the front of a blank card to make Happy Easter cards for friends and family.
  4. Cut vertical slits at the top of one and the bottom of another. Slide them together to form a 3D Easter Egg.
  5. Stick them all onto a large poster to hang on the wall

Happy printing!
