Egg Cartons

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is having a fabulous Tuesday. The weather is perfect. Not too hot here in sunny Florida. The sun is shining brightly. great day for the beach or anything outdoors.

Ok, the reason for my post. I have altered 2 egg cartons. I saw this on youtube. 3 very talented ladies made some and I thought they were so cute I had to make some myself.

I printed some images from http://www.graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/. She has free downloads, I found her thru Tammy, she is sscrafter1 on youtube. Thanks Tammy.

Here they are.


 Here is a full view of the carton. I glued down some tulle and then placed some goodies inside.
 Left corner, has a spool with fiber wrapped and then a flower on top. There are baubles, charms an altered egg, some paper and resin flowers, stick pin beads in the mesh baggie, pearl trim, clothes pin which I altered with a flower pearl trim in white, yellow and baby blue and 2 glass bottles with glitter and dew drops in them to hang.
 Here is the pink one.
 I pretty much added the same things but on this one I added a small booklet for photos, and an envelope with 3 tags inside.

The last 2 pictures are of an altered bird house. Yes, I did another one. This time in blue. I am still going to alter 2 more. One in lavender and one in green.
 I added on this one a birds nest with tiny eggs. I made the nest out of burlap. Super simple to do.

 The back section of the bird house, I added some feathers and some flowers.
I have them both of these displayed on these wall hangings in my dining room.

Hope you guys like my altered egg cartons and birdhouse.

I love how you embellished the egg cartons. I bet it was fun finding tiny littles to put inside. So sweet! The bird houses are cute as well.

Your decorative egg cartons are gorgeous I love them. So shabby chic. I purchased a little bird house today at Michaels so I can alter. Thank you so much for inspiration. Now I need to do the egg carton too. Love em'.

I do sell my card toppers on Ebay. I also put some in my Etsy store as well. Mostly to pay for my crafting addiction. LOL

happy crafting

Love what you've been working on. The bird house are so cute. I love your take on the milk cartons, that would make a great gift. Maybe I'll try it next year for my nieces. Love them Ana.

Again, I'm envious of the fun creativity!! The only other thing I've ever done with an egg carton is to plant seedlings in them! :-)

Hi Ana, So nice to meet you. I am visiting from Sherry's blog and viewing her lovely post with the pretties you created for her in your swap together.
Such gorgeous creations you sent and your egg cartons are also very pretty and so detailed. I also made one with a dozen hand painted eggs that sold in my etsy shoppe. It was so much fun to do and hope to make more next year.

I so enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog and now a new follower.
Have a blessed Easter.
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
