Carrot Patch Treats

Don’t you just adore spring and all the gifts it has to offer? I always look forward to this time of year more than any other, and I especially look forward to Easter. Easter has long been my favorite holiday; I look for every possible way to celebrate it! Sometimes I like to find fresh ways to blend in with time honored traditions, such as the Easter basket. For many years I have used vintage milking buckets as Easter “baskets” for my family, before that since we lived near the beach I used sand pails filled with beach toys and candy. These days I want something a little smaller and more unique to fill with special items for friends and family.

These adorable carrot treat boxes can be presented alone filled with yummy treats or in a container as a decorative element. To create the carrot tops I ran green cardstock through a crimper and cut thin strips leaving the bottom edge intact. Secure the shredded paper to the box lid and crumple or “fluff” the top. Add a sentiment, and embellish with ribbon and twine.

Egg-stra Cute Easter Treats!

Good morning!  Michele Kovack here! Easter is right around the corner and I love making little treats baskets to give to my fellow teachers! I just fill up the baskets with goodies and leave one on their desk!  It is always a sure proof way to bring a smile to their face.  I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 Cartridge to cut the Easter baskets at 5″.  After I assembled them I filled them with some paper trim by Melissa Frances, but any type of Easter grass or shredded paper would do the trick, too!

I wanted to dress up the baskets a bit so I cut an egg tag for each one.  I added a bit of lace and a cute image.  I used this cute little bunny from the Easter Magic Cricut Craft Room Exclusive digital image set and added a bit of glossy accents and glitter to his body.  I added a tiny pearl for his eye and a pom pom for his cotton tail. As a final touch, I tied a bit of twine around his neck.
