Egg 3D Form Alt Wedges

Dimensional egg form for Easter or spring decor 
can stand alone or with bottom stub post for display 
on “Candle Stand Display”. Egg form is constructed 
as ten lid and base wedges that are assembled 
into domes that fit together snugly. 
Create panel stripes by alternating the color of cut wedges. 
Measures approx. 6” tall x 4” across (diameter). 
Pairs well with “Spring Green Wreath for Candle Stand” 
and “Butterfly 3D Accent” designs, and also
the other two egg 3D designs. 

(This tutorial is under construction.
Please return soon to view
the completed assembly guide.)
ASSEMBLY: 1. Identify and cut the shapes:
A upper dome wedge with top decagon cover attached
B upper dome wedges (9 divided between 2 colors)
C lower dome wedge with bottom decagon cover attached
D lower dome wedges (9 divided between 2 colors)
E interior reinforcement disc
F optional stub for using 3D egg with candle stand
G optional bottom decagon cover
2. Prepare all wedge shapes by bending back on
all perforations for panel segments, top cover,
side tabs, for both upper and lower domes.
To differentiate the upper from the lower wedges,
NOTE that there is a triangle symbol cutout in
each of the UPPER wedge shapes as indicated here.
3. Begin to assemble the wedges by aligning
the first two wedges (here, one with top cover)
so that the bottom segments line up, then overlap
the straight edge (on left shape here) over
the corresponding tab opposite to perf line,
and join.
4. Continue to assemble the first upper half as shown
here by connecting 5 - in alternating color order -
on the bottom segment only.
Complete 2 half assemblies like this for upper dome.
5. Bend the adjacent wedges to align the second
segments together to overlap straight edge over
adjacent tab to perf line, and join. Continue upward
on the same seam until all segment seam portions
are joined.
6. Join all the upper dome wedge seams in
the same manner.
7. Align the first corresponding edges of the two
halves, then position and join each segments
of the first side seam as has been done before.
8. Position the final seam edges and join
the second side seam.
9. Bend the top "cover" decagon shape down into
position, adjust to align each cover edge with
top tab perforation line, then glue in place.
If cover edges don't join completely flush,
use scissors to trim away any overhang as evenly
as possible with the dome shape.
