Supplies
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Disposable gloves
  • Recycled backing from inkjet labels or tee shirt transfer (we used
    staples label backing sheets)
  • Vinegar
  • Box Lid
Instructions
  1. Boil eggs, drain. refill pot with water and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Let sit for 15 minutes. Drain and dry eggs.
  2. Print one of our printables on the glossy side side of recycled backing paper. Handle carefully. The ink will not absorb and will lay on top of the paper.
  3. Lay the paper ink side up in the box lid. Place an egg on top. Tip and tilt the box top to make the egg roll around until you are happy with the color on the egg. Set the egg aside until fully dry. Image of Ink Jet Decorated Easter Eggs

Tips:

  1. Some of the ink may transfer to your hands so wear disposable gloves.
  2. Ink brands may transfer differently to different paper types — so test first.
  3. Do not stack printed papers.
  4. Print each sheet of recycled backing paper right before use as it will begin to dry over time.
  5. Recycled backing paper can be reused by wiping left over ink off with a paper towel.
