Carrot Favor

Hello everyone!

Only a couple more days until Easter, so here's a quick project idea for all you last minute crafters - like me! LOL

These little babies can be mass produced in no time! Put them in Easter baskets, set them at each place setting for your Easter meal, put a bunch in a decorative dish or basket, or hand them out to your family and friends.

Here's how:

Emboss a piece of orange cardstock with the Petite Dots embossing folder.

Die-cut scalloped circle from the embossed orange cardstock , using the largest scalloped circle die from the Die'sire Essentials Scalloped Circles set.

Gently curve the scalloped circle to form a cone. Apply liquid adhesive to one edge and hold in place for about a minute, making sure the edges stick together.

Add a strip of double sided tape to the inside of cone. This will secure the cello treat bag in place.

Add candy to clear cello treat bag and tie closed with green ribbon.

Place inside treat container, making sure it sticks to double-sided tape.

Create a fun embellished tag and tie on with green twine.

You can make these any size you want. If you don't have clear cello treat bags handy, just use the corners of sandwich baggies and cut to size. Or use plastic food wrap. The receiver will tear into these for the candy treat, so they won't even notice! LOL!

This tutorial is also shown over on the Crafter's Companion USA Blog. You can see it HERE.
