  • A piece of cardboard cut from a stock, juice or milk carton approx 7.5cm by 19cm (3in by 7.5in) (folded in half lengthwise.)
  • A round shaped chopstick
  • Two elastic bands


  • 1 Egg


  • Hard boil your egg. *SEE NOTE 1
  • Remove the shells while still warm and place the egg in the centre of the cardboard along the fold.
  • Place the chopstick along the top of the egg to form an indentation and secure with rubber bands at each end of the cardboard cradle.
  • Leave for a minimum of ten minutes in the fridge. Remove from carboard cradle and then slice eggs in half to reveal the heart shape


  1.  I use an egg machine to do this but you can place the egg in a pan and cover with water, bring to the boil and then remove from the heat and allow the egg to sit off the heat for 10 mins.
