Ribbon Top Treat Carrots
With Easter fast approaching it was time I whipped up something fun for the kiddos! I recently invested in a Silhouette die cut machine and wanted to put it to good use. The tutorial below utilizes a die cut shape I downloaded, but you can get the idea of the shape by the photos below. Of course it also makes great use of green shades of May Arts ribbon too.
First I cut the shape from a pretty shade of orange cardstock by American Crafts.
One side of the shape needs adhesive. Here I used double sided tape to hold it together.
This is how it looks once glued together.
Of course any treat container needs treats 😉 This time of year it is all about the jellybeans.
The holes through the top of the cardstock allow for the ribbon to go through—here I used two different kinds and just tied them on the top. A ribbon carrot top! Love it 🙂
Here it is complete…
But it needed a little something….so I typed up a greeting on kraft cardstock and punched it out as a label. Using the natural looking SM10 I used my tiny attacher to staple it to the string.
Tied around the carrot it's the perfect touch.
I remembered I had this old crate-style box. Looks like they were just picked from the patch 😉 I might surprise the boys by having them on their breakfast plates Easter morning, or maybe just make a boxful to sit by the front door for friends who might stop by between now and then. In any case a simple little treat, made perfect by May Arts ribbon!
Thanks for joining me today and if you have any questions let us know! See you next time!
