We have definitely been inspired to re-create this fun "carrot" favor box from several we saw on Pinterest. It has been years since we made the "old" sour cream containers. These are made the same way but with a twist.
So, for those of you who have never made these quick and easy "treat" boxes. These would be adorable at the Easter table or for class room favors.
Gather your supplies: Card stock, patterned paper or card stock vellum, crimper, adhesive
We made two - one with SU! pumpkin patterned paper and one from card stock vellum. The size we made these is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". If you do not have colored vellum, you can do like we did. We got out the brayer and an ink pad. Once colored, we then ran it through a polka dot embossing folder. We used SU! Wild Wasabi for the carrot tops. These were about 2-1/2" long and we free-hand cut them to not be too uniform.
We used Sticky Strip to hold our carrots together. Run a strip down one of the 4-1/4" sides - on the front side.
Also, run a piece down each of the 5-1/2" sides leaving a small gap on the ends as they will be rolled together and you won't be able to peel off the tape as easily. These two should be done on the "wrong" side.
Remove the red coating and attach to the other side creating a "tube."
Remove the red coating and squeeze one end together.
Add the green strips to the other end - however many you want. We did try to keep the strips more towards the center as we thought that was a little more realistic but that is all personal preference. We tried two different ways of doing this and found they both work. You can crimp the small pieces and then add them to the top and then crimp the top OR you can add the uncrimped strips and then run the crimper through the top and the green strips at the same time. If you are going to fill these with goodies, do so BEFORE you seal the top.
We did do a little "fluffing" and a little more trimming and shredding. Make them to suit you. We hope you make some of these for your Easter holiday.
Have a great weekend. Two Paper Divas - Melissa and Gayla
