Carrots Are Good For Your Eyes!

 

Paper Carrot Treat Container

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.

 

Easter Party Favors

  • 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.
