  1. That was one of the most interesting upcycle projects I’ve ever seen. I think everyone has made something from pasta when they were little, but this is fantastic! Thank you. For me, I’d like to spray paint the inside as well. It was a shock to see that it was an egg carton. (that’s what made the project so great) but in making it, I’d want it “finished” Thank you.

  2. This is incredible! I never thought of using egg cartons for beads or projects. I’m sure its a great seperator and saver too! I’ll have to try this! thanks!

  3. I have to agree with Lisa Holiday! I was so intrigued when I saw it was an egg carton and pasta I just had to see the whole thing! I’m definitely going to try this Sept I’ll have to leave my beads in small veggies or I’ll end up with a bead “SOUP” mix… Can you use modpodge on this instead of the ON A glue? I’m not sure where to look for it at?
