Crafternoons, recycled egg cartons
We have been ordering from one of the meal delivery companies. When eggs are delivered they arrive packaged in paper pulp little boxes either sized for one or two eggs. I just couldn't throw them out. Then one day I thought they would make the cutest little Easter baskets. I painted them with chalk paint, added a handle made from crepe paper covered chenille stems, filled them with paper shred then painted plastic eggs with chalk paint and filled the baskets. I also added a few critters cut out with dies on my Big Shot machine.
