Mine was definitely not an ingenius design... but it was the 6th smallest :D It's cheaper to buy two dozen eggs than to mail one egg, seriously.
I made my box with cardboard and yarn. Tied the sides of the box together and voila! The width measures at just 3" long!
I used the same yarn from the box and loomed the yarn to the desirable length - same way you'd loom a scarf. Wrapped it around the egg to protect it during the process of transporting and for decorative purposes.
The label on my box actually said "send this egg to *insert address*" and that's when I realized that I had forgotten to cut off the "send this egg" part of the label LOL. The postman at the post office probably thought I was a crazy girl or something... oh well.
When the day came, the prof brought all the eggs he had received from the postman and we had to open one by one O_O Now, you have to be careful how you open it because if it breaks on the spot, you will get penalized. Good ol' me back in first year *sigh* My egg came in one piece :D wohoo!
There was definitely a mess we made from all the unwrapping and unboxing. You can see a couple of designs from my fellow classmates. So what do you think? Cool project?
