Sparkle Egg


These amazing sparkleball eggs are fashioned out of hard plastic shot glasses and clear address labels. Master Sparkleballer Carl Boro figured out that using labels to join cups would allow the flexibility he needed to form an egg shape.  He also crafted the top and bottom in slightly different formulas, which I love.   I’ve never worked with address labels, but it seems like an inventive way to join hard cups.

– 154  1-oz shot glasses  per egg
– formulas for each side:   4-10-14-17-18-19  and  1-6-12-16-18-18
– 154 lights   (Carl added extra lights to 3 strings of 50)
