Question Need help with egg drop project

In my 11th grade physics class, we are doing an egg drop experiment that has a few restrictions. We can use any material except bubble wrap and styrofoam peanuts, the apparatus needs to be 170g (about 6oz) or less (without the egg), and it is to be dropped from one story up into a target area. The problem is, I'm dropping a dozen eggs at once, and I have no idea about how I'm going to do it. I've thought of using the frame of a box and securing a second box with the eggs inside by rubber bands extending from each of the outside corners to each of the inside, but I'm not convinced that'll work. Any other ideas out there?
