I used the Floral Easter Faces from yesterday to design some charming Egg Carton Labels:
I’ve been collecting the 6-pack egg cartons for a long time, especially when I have purchased the yellow and green cartons! But if yours are white only, or if you want other colors, just paint them first with some acrylic paint! I also started trying to crack the eggs carefully, so I can use the shells as precious little candy cups inside the egg cartons. Just rinse them off and put them back into the carton upside down, until you are ready to cah-raft with them 😀
Here is the super easy DIY:
- Print my Egg Cartons Labels on white cardstock (I use Canon Matte Photo paper, 160g)
- Cut out the labels, I used a corner punch to round the edges of the inside label
- Optional: accent the images with glitter glue (I used Stickles in various colors, when I did not have a matching color, I used clear Diamond). Let dry well (I left mine over night)
- Use a glue stick to cover the back of the labels well, and align the outside label to fit directly on top of the original egg carton label. The inside label has room for a short greeting (on the egg).
- Fill your cartons with yummy treats, fresh EGGS or anything you fancy!
- TA-DAH: you have your own unique Easter Egg Cartons

In case your original egg carton labels are shaped differently than what seems to be the “standard” labels here in Norway, you can try carefully removing the original label, and crop the Floral Easter Faces Labels to fit your cartons.
If that also is not working out for you, go back to yesterday’s post and print out the originals, peel an original label off your carton and use it as a template to trace around. If you can’t manage to peel it off in one piece, simply cut one out from one of your cartons 😉
