142776 Mini Egg Cartons

These are fun containers perfectly sized to hold small goodies.

  • Natural cream color
  • 8 cartons
  • 4 “egg” sections per carton
  • Size when closed: 4" x 4" x 2-3/4"

I'm excited that the Mini Egg Cartons are now available to order - woohoo!  Obviously they would make great Easter gifts, filled with candy and eggs.  But if you think outside the "carton", I sure you'll find all kinds of uses for them.  For example, check out this Spring Flower Garden idea...perfect for Mother's Day, May Day, springtime celebrations, recognition lunches, table favors, baby showers and more!
