What a fun way to keep your desk organized. I like this idea and I can't wait to try the project!

#NationalCraftMonth2017 great kid project!

Such a simple yet great idea! TFS! #NationalCraftMonth2017

I remember making something like this when I was a kid. The egg boxes were arranged 3x4 instead of 2x6. We didn't have paint available, but pasted pictures all over, with a big rose on the top because that was Mom's favorite flower at the time. #NationalCraftMonth2017

What a great idea to paste pictures all over the egg carton because the paint can be messy and I remember when we were little and did some projects something like this in schools they used comics from the newspapers a lot or we used tissue paper and crumbled it up. There is so many different options available today. It is amazing what they come up with. I do like this as a kids organizer to put some craft things for them. It is great to reminisce about our days verses today. Brings back some great memories.

Clever idea--I have a lot of egg cartons as we raise chickens. #NationalCraftMonth2017

Very cute but it wouldn't work for the amount of stuff on my desk...I'd need 12 #NationalCraftMonth2017

I love catch all projects like this. #NationalCraftMonth2017
