I mailed an egg

...or actually, two eggs!

I came across this blog post where the blogger posts about mailing Easter eggs. I couldn't believe that you could just throw an Easter egg in the mail and it would actually get mailed to its recipient!
So I decided to try it! I knew my nephews would LOVE these stuffed with fun treats. My goal was to get them mailed for Easter, but I was about a week late. I don't think they minded. ;)

So here are the goods.
I found the oversized eggs in the Dollar Spot at Target around Easter time. Most of the things I filled them with were also from the Dollar Spot. I looked several places for the tattoos because I knew the boys would love those. I ended up finding them at Michaels. 

Filled and taped with packaging tape, then washi tape...since the packaging tape isn't so cute. Priorities. ;)

Ready to go! I used my Stamps.com account to print the postage for these, but you can easily take them into the post office and ship them.

My nephews live a little over 200 miles from us and they got them in 3 business days. I was very impressed! My sister-in-law said they were a big hit!!
