A few week ago one of the bloggers I follow had a coupon to try Blue Apron Meals.
I have had a lot of fun cooking the varied international flavored dishes.
Several of the meals have used eggs. The eggs are packed in the cutest little paper pulp boxes. I have been saving these boxes because they looked interesting. I knew I could make something with them.
I was looking at them today and decided I could make Easter baskets with them.
They come in two sizes, holding either one egg or two.
I began by punching a hole in each side for the handle.
I painted one aqua and the other pink.
Then using a pipe cleaner I wound a length with pink crepe paper around each one. Then threaded one end through each hole and twisted it around itself to secure.
I also glued a pastel paper flower to cover the twisted pipe cleaner.
Then I cut out dragonflies and bees on my Big Shot for the baskets.
Using hot glue I added a different lace to each basket and filled them with brown paper shred.
Next I glued the dragonflies and bees to the baskets.
I had a package of plastic Easter eggs. For these baskets I didn't want shiny plastic eggs so I painted each one with a matching color of chalk paint.
Love using these pieces of garbage and making them into these cute little baskets.
