Carrot Box


Here is a photo of a Carrot Box that I am making for my son's teachers. I plan on filling the boxes up with some easter candy. I only have 6 carrots to make so it shouldn't take long. Last year I made these boxes for Easter Dinner, I put names on each carrot and set them on each plate. I wish I would have taken a photo of my dinner table it so pretty! I am thinking this year I should make a bunch of carrots to fill a basket to use as the centerpiece of the table.


Here is a close-up of the tag and rosette. There is a really good tutorial on how to make these paper rosettes on the Paper-source.com. Here is the link.

To make the tag I used the LDJ Shop 'til you drop font -and a purple gel pen to draw the 'Happy Easter'.

  5. How cute is this! Thanks for sharing. Do I remember right or did you use scal or MTC to do scoring?

    Happy Easter to you!

  6. Now I get it! I was thinking Cricut markers. This is absolutely cool - much better with the thinner lines - and the box is so stinkin' cute! Thanks for the file.

  22. Very cute! I love the little "Happy Easter" you drew with the pens. I am so not in love with stamping, so this gives me another option besides printing words via the printer.

  43. Thanks for the carrot box. I agree with you about the cut score lines on boxes and even crads, it really takes away from the look of the finished project.

  51. I don't have the gel pens and probably won't get them BUT I love the flower. I never thought of using this with a large circle in the middle as you have. I'll have to try this one myself. Looks more like an award to me than a flower and I think its great.
