Altered Easter Egg Carton Swap

This cold weather sure doesn't make it seem possible that spring begins tomorrow, does it?
I have a feeling that Easter is going to be chilly! I don't know anyone who isn't ready for
spring and warmer weather.
Now that Easter is closing in on us, I wanted to share a swap that I recently participated in.
I like to wait to show what I made until it's been received by the recipent so it doesn't ruin the surprise, and she received it yesterday.

Not sure why I didn't take very many pictures so I'll describe it the best I can.
I wanted to paint it pink, Alyraynita loves shabby chic and this was perfect for me since
I love shabby chic too! I didn't have any pink paint so I mixed up some mauve paint with lots of white paint. Got out the hot glue gun and added layers of lace and flat back pearl trim.

The printable I got off my pinterest board and distressed the edges and added
several different color flowers and embellishments.

Inside the carton was also painted and I hot glued down some Melissa Frances paper fringe all around.
Once I had that done, it was time to add the goodies. I added a couple of plastic eggs that each had a scrapbooking goodie inside, also added some beaded trim, the "you're some kind of wonderful" stamp, and other goodies perfect for Easter.

I wished I could tell you where I got this, it might be an Etsy store.
Isn't it darling? I might try to make a few of these next year.

This is what I tucked inside the yellow Easter egg.
The felt flowers are from Michaels and the resin bunnies were from eBay.
With all the pictures I normally take, I only took four of this.
It turned out pretty cute, don't you think?
I'll also be sharing this over on my YT channel later today.

Thanks for stopping by today!
