#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

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
