I'm one of those moms who hoards egg cartons for....well, just in case.  You know...the case that doesn't happen very often.  So, that is why, this Christmas, I was outright determined to create a fun ornament using egg cartons.  (And maybe the other reason I decided to make egg carton ornaments is so that my husband wouldn't ask me anymore if I just like to look at our egg carton stock pile.)
