Are you prepping up for Easter? I am and totally fell in love with the strawberries I made for Valentine's for school gifts and wanted to create something similar for Easter. I created the carrot packaging pattern in Illustrator and imported and edited the image in Silhouette. I used my Silhouette machine to cut the pattern.
I selected various paper patterns to complete my project.
Fold along the crease marks.
I used hot glue to secure the end tab. This works great than double sided tape or glue dots. It's much more durable.
I prepared green yarn tassels for the carrot leaves. I used a small card stock as my guide. Wrap yarn around the card stock several times and secure with another yarn, tie in a knot and cut the ends.
Add treats inside the carrot box.
Insert the green tassel and loop an extra piece of yarn through the punched holes and secure in a knot.
Arrange and pull out tassel.
Set aside and prepare stamped Easter tag.
Carrots are done and ready to be tagged.
I prepared scalloped circle tags, stamped "Happy Easter" sentiment using PSA Essentials Peel and Stick stamp.
I also added a pink and white twine to finish my tags.
Add tag and secure. That's it! Simple and so cute.
We're ready to share them with our school friends. I'm planning on making a few extra carrots for our church teachers too!
Great gift and a great addition to your Easter bags.
