Thank you Sandy for giving my creativity a jump start! Sandy hosted a Vintage Egg Carton Swap and asked me to join. I was also the lucky recipient of her creation.
Here are pics of all the goodies inside. Sandy knows my studio is blue, so everything had a blue theme to it.
These pieces of ephemera were tuck into the carton lid held by this pretty lace.
Thank you Sandy for all the beautiful things you sent! Your creation is wonderful. Okay Sandy, if you don't want to ruin your surprise, stop reading the rest of this post. The mail between the US and Canada is so slow. I hope you get your package today.
Here is what I made for Sandy.
I started out by spray painting the entire carton a soft white shade.
Then I had fun plowing through all the things in my studio to look for embellishments, and goodies for the inside.
I added lace, pom-pom garland and some feathers peaking out of the top cover.
I lined each of the eggs cups with silk rose petals.
I know how much Sandy likes her dolls. This one is ready for her to create something wonderful.
An old millinery flower with tags tucked into a pocket I made in the top.
Thanks again, Sandy for hosting this swap. It was a really fun project.
