inspired by this image on Pinterest using egg cartons for packaging, i wanted to create an Easter gift for a creative friend. i've always had a thing for egg cartons....probably left over from from my preschool, crafting projects (oh, my mum must have loved those) or the idea that these boxes contain precious, fragile cargo......for the Pinterest idea they filled the carton with small, breakfast treats. i also loved this use for cartons in a cafe in South Africa.
anyway, i did think about putting different bulbs into each egg recess that my friend could plant in her garden but decided to go for biscuits instead. i put most of the ingredients for a simple, iced biscuit recipe into a painted carton (all that's missing is the unsalted butter for the biscuits and the icing) and then finished it off with the recipe and a cookie cutter on the outside.
i loved the result, but my mind is now whirring with ideas for future egg cartons? any suggestions?
