blog #400 >> Egg Cartons and More

I finally get to post these pictures! I've been waiting to give these to my sister Carrie for at least a month now. I suppose I could have posted them sooner, but that would have spoiled the surprise.

And nothing says, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" like a vintage deodorant jar. This will be perfect for her homemade deodorant recipe.

And here are some other cool things I found while looking ideas on what to paint on her egg carton:















I love this idea for displaying egg cups, see here.


And just so you all realize I'm not a real genius, here's the egg carton I practically copied. See here.


Cheers!
