egg carton flowers

I am just starting on my hand made Christmas presents and the first in line are the presents for my son's teachers.  He is in a special classroom for autistic children so he has a teacher and 3 aides.  This year I decided to whip an oldie but a goodie.  I made these egg carton flowers a few years ago for his preshcool staff and they were a big hit!  It took alot less time this year because instead of painting them by hand I used spray mist.  They are pretty self explanatory but if you have a question ask away!

  4. SO cool. WOW and I only use my egg cartons left overs for Easter or to hold paint. You really got my vote with this one.
