Egg Carton Love

You know how much I love to recycle things if you've been around my blog much. I saw on Pinterest where someone recycled an egg carton and knew I had to give it a try. 6-piece egg cartons are even cuter! (got mine at petchicken.com) AND if you know me at all, you know I like to be a non-traditionalist at times, so rather than decorate a carton for Easter, I decided I wanted to decorate one for Valentine's Day.

I ♥ Fancy Pants' Blissful Blizzard line and yes it is a winter line, but going out of the box, I think the colors are perfect for Valentine's Day as well!

I cut the hearts with my George Cricut cartridge and inked all the edges. Then just started layering using Tombow adhesives. The lace is from My Arts. Oh and the carton is lightly spray painted white. Now all I need are some wrapped candies to fill the inside with.

I am also linking this up to Country Girl at Home for her Pinned It Made It Monday challenge.

    That is darling. I love it done on the 6 egg carton - makes it all the cuter. Pretty!

    Thanks for participating in Pinned it, Made it Monday. :)
