Reverse Confetti April Blog Hop

Egg Carton Easter Gift

It's the 8th of the month and time for Reverse Confetti's monthly blog hop. As RC approaches it's 4th birthday next month, it's also time to clear out some old inventory to make way for the new. Be sure to visit Jen on the Reverse Confetti blog for a list of stamps and dies that have or will be retiring once currently inventory is gone. If something on the retirement list is also on your wish list, now might be a good time to pick that up! I've chosen a couple favorites from the retirement list and will highlight them later on in this post. But first, today's project!

Egg Carton Easter Gift

I saw Rebecca Luminarias's gorgeous egg carton projects a couple of days ago, and once I read that she found the egg cartons at the Target dollar spot, it wasn't more than half a second before I hit the road to snag up some before they disappear! Go get these if you're anywhere near a Target!

Egg Carton Easter Gift

I started by wrapping a band of spring plaid paper  and some turquoise seam binding around the carton, then added some layered circle elements, an Easter sentiment and some butterfly accents. Super quick and easy to put these together!

In the far back is a paper doily. Next is a lightly sponged Lacy Scallop Circle Confetti Cuts die-cut. The sentiment, from Easter Blessings, has been stamped in Piggy Bank ink. Next is a Swirlies Confetti Cuts die-cut in vellum. And last are three stamped butterflies.


I think I'm going to need more of these cartons! They're just too cute!

Stamps: Easter Blessings, Butterfly Dreams
Dies: Lacy Circle Swirles, ButterflyDreams
Ink: Piggy Bank, Lime Green
Paper: Photoplay patterned paper, white card stock, vellum
Other: seam binding, doily, egg carton

Back to that retired list ... some goodbyes are harder than others. But we're also making room for goodies to come, and retirement list items are discounted by 40%!

Fabulous Flamingo is one of my all-time favorites:

As well as Paper Crane:

Have a great weekend, friends! Enjoy the hop!

I love your egg carton project! Now that everyone has seen your wonderful project, I'm sure there won't be any of these egg cartons to be found at Target! LOL Great cards!
