Carrot Box - Weekend Project

Here's a fun "Weekend Project" for you. I found this adorable carrot box at SplitCoastStampers. It was designed by the user Dazzling Diamonds and the link to the pattern is found here. It is in the form of a PDF file and it will print out onto your decorative paper or card stock. If using decorative paper be sure not to press to hard when using the Fiskars scoring blade. Using a bone folder helps a lot to prevent the paper from being scored too deeply. I was able to cut the two long sides on the paper cutter and the rest I cut out by hand. It's pretty quick and very simple to put together.

I had some left over pieces of green striped decorative paper from the "Afternoon Tea" collection so I cut it in tiny strips and used it for the top of the carrot. I didn't have a Stampin' Up! bunny so I used the bunny from the stamp I got at Michael's. I think you could also use green ribbon or card stock for the top too. My first thought was to use some green Easter grass but I didn't have any and I wasn't going to go out and buy any just for this. I like the paper and I REALLY like the color of the paper so I'm going to stick with that. Plus I already have the paper!!!

You can decorate these up as much or as little as you want. Either way they are adorable. And trust me, this carrot holds quite a few M & M's!!!

I just think this is such a clever idea. Ever have those moments where you think, "I should have thought of that?" LOL

I can see making a lot of these little ggems for my family for Easter.

Have fun with these!!! Email me your finished one and I'll post it here for you!! I'd LOVE to see what you do with this pattern!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
