Easter Carrot Treat Holders

Easter Carrot treat Holders

I made these cute carrot shaped treat holders to put in the grand kid’s new Easter baskets. I think they’ll be surprised when they find out there’s goodies inside them.

Here’s how I made them:

Easter Carrot Treat Holder materials

Cut one 5” x 5” square from white paper

Cut two 8” x 8” squares from tissue paper

Cut one 2” X 3” piece of green paper and cut slits along one long edge to within 1/2” from the other edge.

wrap cone with tissue paper and trim

Roll the white square into a cone and cut off the top.

Wrap the cone with the tissue paper squares, tape and cut off the top.

make fringed tops

Roll the fringed paper piece into a tube and seal with double sided tape.

fill, twist and add fringed top

Fill the inside cone with goodies of your choice, twist the top closed, apply double stick tape around the twisted top, add the fringed top and press to seal.

Pleated Easter Baskets For The Grandkids

26 Mar

Pleated Easter Baskets

I was off work today and thought I’d get a start on my Easter crafting by making these pleated Easter baskets for the Grandkids. They were really easy and fun to make.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 – 12” x 12” piece of card stock (for the box)

2 – 12” x 12” sheets of scrapbook paper (for the handle and pleated sides)

1/4” Double stick tape…I love my double stick tape!

Glue gun and glue sticks

Ruler

Scoring tool (I use a metal embroidery needle)

Stapler

Cut out box form

Make box

Make the box (6”) from the cardstock as stated in the photos above.

cut pleat and handle strips of paper

For the pleats and handle, cut 5 – 3” x 12” strips of scrapbook paper. Pleat 4 strips using about a 3/8” pleat.  Set aside.

Make handle

For the handle, crease one 3” x 12” strip down the center. Fold in half. Open and then fold the sided inside close to the center crease. Apply double stick tape along one long folded edge and fold in half to make the handle.

Attach handle

Attach the handle to the box as stated in the photo above.

Attach pleated pieces to box

Attach the pleated scrapbook pieces to the box. Keep the box flat on the table when attaching the pleated paper to make sure they are flush with the bottom edge.

Hot glue pleats to box

Secure the pleated sides to the box with hot glue along top and bottom.

Finished basket

Add some Easter grass and it’s ready to fill with some Easter goodies!
