FILL AN EGG CARTON

I have two blog friends that I am sending egg cartons full of goodies to.
Cassandra over at An Artful Adventure is our host for the Easter Treats Egg Carton Swap
Both of the cartons I created were mailed wrapped in these vintage linen dinner napkins with a circle tag cut from some vintage wallpaper.
 Both of my friends requested neutral colors.
This is the top of one of the egg cartons.

 This is the second egg carton.
I used the same bird image on both.
Lots of vintage lace and trims were used to make the covers.
I painted the egg cartons with spring/pearled colors.
The tags are hand stamped.
 I will not show the goodies inside, I don't want to spoil the surprise if my friends come to visit.
Have you tried filling an egg carton with goodies and giving away as a gift?
I think it would make a nice gift for a child, the egg carton will hold the plastic eggs that could be filled with little surprises....
Just a thought.
Thanks for stopping by.
