Okay, you have to admit that this carrot is good for your eyes, right? This is such a cute, easy and clever way to give Easter treats. This particular “healthy food” is filled with sugary-sweet jelly beans. It makes a great addition to a child’s Easter basket, or as a way to give an Easter treat to friends and co-workers.
I saw this adorable and very clever idea on Dawn Tidd’s blog. Dawn is a friend and fellow Stampin’ Pretty Pal, and a very talented designer. She has a wonderfully informative video on her blog on how to make the sour cream container paper carrots.
I’ve put a few Pretty Impact twists on mine:
- I turned the 4″ x 6″ paper to adhere it longwise to make a longer carrot shape. It’s a little more difficult to adhere the sides together, but I like the look of the longer carrot.
- The ends of this paper carrot were embossed with a Square Lattice embossing folder.
- I didn’t have the Spring Sampler stamp set yet when I made this carrot (so sad, I know, but I have it now!), so I used the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and “Happy Easter” from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
A stretch of Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine secures the button with a bow.
- One tiny flower (Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack) adorned with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel give it a little spring pop.
I hope you enjoyed this cute idea as much as I did!
