Luv2Stamp Blog Hop Day 3, Egg Carton

This was my 3rd project that I shared with the Luv2stamp Group on this past Saturday. Make sure you hop to the other presenters, links at bottom of my post. Now, I know the Egg Cartons are non orderable right now, but they will be back in our warehouse on March 20th. That leaves you almost a month to order and get them made before Easter. Easter is April 16th this year. When I put together the things I was going to share, the cartons were not on back order.
This is what they look like when you receive them.

Did you know, you can color them with Rubbing Alcohol, re-inker and a Stampin’ Spritzer? Fill your Spritzer with Rubbing Alcohol, add 10-15 drops of re-inker and shake. You will need to fill your Spritzer up twice to color the inside and outside of the egg carton. I took a big box and spritzed in that. The mess is contained in the box and not all over your counter or walls. I wish I had taken a photo, as my Stamp Club Gals made them too.

 

I used a Belly Band so you could get inside the carton without having to tie the ribbon each time. The Belly Band is 2″ x 15″. For the Luv2stamp meeting we received 6 x 6 squares of Designer Paper. Just cut 1 piece into 2″ strips, adhere together with Tear and Tape. Cut off the excess. Make sure you put the seams on the side. Then tie your ribbon around.

To make the basket you will need the Basket Bunch Bundle, Stamp set and matching Framelits. Here is a quick tutorial on how I did the basket.

Add your sentiment to the basket with some Linen Thread and you are done!

Cutting Guide:

2″ x 15″ Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper
5/8″ x 3 1/2″ Whisper White cardstock (for sentiment)
Scraps of Tip Top Taupe, Sweet Sugarplum, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay
Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper (New Sale-a-bration item) I didn’t have this paper when I made my original basket.
