There is a crafter's blogland that is chocked full of crafting
tutorials to show us "crafty " people how to make anything.
And I do mean anything. One of my favorite blogs is :
iluvvintagescrap.blogspot.com. She makes the cutest and
most lovely projects, I have ever seen. She takes everyday
things and remakes them into beautiful creations.
I saw this egg carton idea on her blog and thought it would
be fun to make a couple of these for the girls.
Take cardboard like egg carton like below and cut it into
sections. ( I used one that held 18 eggs) and cut it into thirds.
I then painted each one a different color with acrylic
paint. These absorb the paint, so put it on thick.
After they dry, start decorating!
I painted the first one light pink, added some scrapbook
paper and then embellished with flowers, stickers and
I used a fabric glue to attach all my items.
The next was a purple shade.
The last was a dark aqua or turquoise color.
Each one is different and fits the personality of each
Here is a side view of the cartons.
I used a small piece of scrapbook paper on inside of cover,
wrote a little note and decorated the corners.
I then put some shredded colored grass in each hole
and filled them with goodies.
The possibilities are endless with this project. You can
use this idea as a fun way to do a unique gift presentation
and fill with bath products, craft items ,etc...
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and are spending
it with loved ones. I'm so thankful that Jesus died on the cross
for me and many others.
Happy Easter, Cindy
