Egg Carton Rose CraftInstructions:
Start out by cutting two cups from a cardboard egg carton. Fill a large bowl with enough water to submerge the egg carton cups in. Put the egg carton cups into the water and let them soak for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove one from the water. Pinch the bottom of the egg carton cup and manipulate the cup so it looks like rose petals. Remove the second egg carton cup from the water, pinch the bottom, and shape it around the first cup. Manipulate the cups until you get it to the desired look. Color your rose red by using drops of red food coloring. Be careful, the red food coloring can stain fingers!  Set the rose in a safe place and let it dry. This may take several hours. You can then use the rose to embellish a container or use to decorate a journal cover.  You can even put this on a cake as a pretty decoration, just be sure to take it off before eating your cake!
