A frame decorated with eggshell

Perhaps there is no refrigerator in which chicken eggs would not lie on a special shelf. Over time, they will turn into scrambled eggs, scrambled eggs, eggnog, will become an ingredient of some salad. And the shell? She will go to the garbage can. But let's not hurry, in the right hands and she will find a use. We offer an interesting variant of finishing the frame for photography using eggshells. This process is quite interesting and uncomplicated, you can attract to the creativity of children. Let's start with the manufacture of the frame itself. We need two different-sized rectangular sheets of cardboard. In a smaller sheet we make a small semicircular cut from the short side.

We have come to the most interesting step. We will need a shell of four or five eggs. It should be well dried, it is desirable to remove the inner film. We glue a small portion of the frame with glue, take a piece of eggshell, apply it to the frame and gently press it with your finger. The shell cracks, taking the form of a mosaic.
