Egg Carton Crafts

Hi friends! I hope you had a lovely day! We had a VERY full day! We went to an Easter egg hunt put on by our town then had lunch. We came home then colored eggs and made crafts with the empty egg cartons.

Here are the bugs the kids made. I saw something like this on Pinterest, it's from Kaboose (project HERE.) Then just pulled out what supplies I had and tried to re-create it. Well, the kids just got to use the supplies how they like and we helped them with the cutting and gluing.
And then I decided to use the egg carton to make my own craft. I saw this idea on Pinterest but I didn't use a specific tutorial. I just kind of went with it. I used two of the egg carton cups, trimming them and cutting petals. Then I sprayed them with shimmer mist. I added a crotchet flower and a pearl button from Creating is Fun.

For the card I used Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #54. I am also entering this in the Moxie Fab World Household Items Challenge. The paper is Cosmo Cricket's Tea for Two. The stamps are Mini Thoughts from My Thoughts Exactly. Both trims are from Creating is Fun. The leaves are made using a Martha Stewart punch.
Have a great day friends!
