Egg Carton Daffodils

Egg cartons!  Most of us don’t give them a second thought. As long as they keep our eggs intact, we’re happy. But egg cartons are a fabulous craft resource. You can cut them up for bits or soak them and then reshape them into just about anything. This project only needs some scissors, paint, imagination and, of course, egg cartons…
