I've been researching making stones or bricks out of egg cartons, because I thought it might be a great way of edging the fireplaces in the kitchen.
Problem is, it's darned hard to find paper egg cartons with solidly flat lids where I live. And the ones I can find are pretty flimsy (not like the egg cartons I remember when I was a child :) But I really want to try this technique, so I guess I'll be buying a lot of eggs! What can I make with a lot of eggs? (besides meringues, for pity's sake, because when I consume meringues, a great deal of whipped cream is involved :)
If you want to check out this technique, here are some two links:
