Story Egg Tips
Remember, these eggs are hand carved and made of natural wood. They are brand new so there is still some moisture in the wood. They may not be easy to open at first so here are some helpful tips. When opening the Eggs, don’t twist them, just pull them apart to open. Let the eggs set out for a few days prior to use so the wood can release any moisture. Please keep the eggs closed as they dry. As the eggs are opened and closed after usage they will naturally loosen as well.
