Back in January, I celebrated my birthday. My sweet sisters knew that I wanted a new clock for my family room, because I had one, it fell off the wall several months ago, and broke. I tried to glue it back together, but it just didn’t work. So, I needed a new one. Clocks are expensive, so I didn’t really have the money in my budget at the time to get a new one. Well, since my sisters knew about the clock, they decided for my birthday to get me a gift card for Hobby Lobby so I could buy a new clock. When I went to get a clock, they were on sale, so I had some extra money on the gift card that I could use to buy some other fun things. So I wandered around Hobby Lobby and enjoyed myself. I found the brown egg cartons the day I bought my clock. I knew I wanted to make something for Easter that day, but I wasn’t totally sure what. I just thought the egg cartons were so cute! Well, a few weeks ago, I was again at Hobby Lobby wandering around, and in the Easter section, I found a package of multi colored egg cartons. I, of course, had to buy them. So today, I’m sharing how I used them for this Egg Carton Easter Gift. I hope you love this simple project as much as I do.

Egg Carton Easter Gift Supplies:
- Egg Cartons (I found all of mine at Hobby Lobby)
- Shredded Paper
- Variety of Candy
- Printable Tags that fit Egg Carton (for personal use only)
- Printer (this is the one I use and love)
- Baker’s Twine
- Paper Trimmer
I started by printing out my tags. Once I had all of my supplies together, I trimmed my prints down to size using my paper trimmer.
I got one of each color of egg carton out and also some of the white paper shred.
Add the shredded paper to the egg cartons.
Start filling the egg cartons with your candy. I chose a variety of candy in different sizes to make it look good in the carton.
Once I had my cartons full, I was ready to finish the outside.
Close your cartons.
I already had my tags/labels cut and ready to go on the top of my boxes.
I grabbed some glue dots and put one on each corner.
Then I just placed it where I wanted it on the top of my cartons.
Last, I added a double strand of baker’s twine and tied it in a bow.
Because I’ve been thinking about making these for so long, when I got to this point, I was a little bit giddy because I thought they turned out so cute and also because they were so easy!
Aren’t they so cute?!
Don’t you think they would make a great little Easter gift for anyone? A family member, friend, neighbor, etc.
And you can fill them up with whatever kind of candy you prefer, so customize them with the favorite treats of who ever you’ll be giving them to.
I think I’ll be giving these to some of my friends, as long as my kids don’t get to them first. 😉
Aren’t the colors of the egg cartons just so fun?!
