12:00 (PST)justjohanna Earth Day Egg Carton Challenge..........





Eggs....a staple of our diets...but what do you do with all those egg cartons that you accumulate? Too good to just toss away...so let's recycle them on some cards or paper projects. Here are a couple of samples to start you off...and then let's see some of the great ideas that you come up with!


On the first card...I made a miniature egg carton out of the real egg carton, chalked it and added justjohanna's Desmond Squeaker Birds to guard the eggs. I also cut the "Grade A Eggs" from the
carton and added it to the card.


The second card was made using scalloped nesting dies . I cut two different scalloped circles out of the egg carton to make trees, colored them with chalk inks and added two of the justjohanna Chubby Cows.


Make sure you leave a link to your creation either here on my blog or at the justjohanna message board...and it'll give you a chance to see all the other challenges and try those out too!


And...don't forget to check out the justjohanna Gallery to see all the great cards and projects that everyone has created.

this was a tough one... mainly because we didn't really have any extra egg cartons. i'm sure sometime later today or tomorrow, someone's going to wonder why there are two big holes in the lid of the egg carton in the fridge. or maybe they're just used to me by now!
