Egg carton flower pots

Hello dear readers,

I need flower pots, as many as possible.  Found this wonderful  tutorial for making flower pots out of card stock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZQHxtIAVhY.
I wanted to try it but didn't have the card paper nor the mosaic cement.  Instead,  I had  at hand plenty egg cartons left over from the holidays so I tried, with a few changes, to make pots using this material.  With a few changes from the original tutorial, here is how I made my flower pots:

Materials used:
Egg cartons
Tacky glue
Foam piece or eraser
pen handle (for rolling)
Sand paper
Acrylic paints

This is how they look after adding the top bands and trimming the bases.  Now comes the sanding part.  I sanded them allover, sides bases and tops.  Now they are ready to be painted.

After sanding the edges get smooth and it's hardly noticeable where they were glued together.

From  now I shall hopefully never be without planting pots.

Wish you all lovely days of sunshine and blessings.
