Happy Easter Everyone!
Last week I made the carrot treat boxes that came in my March The Stamps of Life Card Kit that I showed in my unboxing video here. There is a giveaway hidden inside that video if you are interested :-). The treat boxes are for my grandson for Easter so I made them a little more rustic in style. I didn’t think he wanted a lot of pink and purple but all the papers in this kit are amazing with those gorgeous spring colors. Below are my steps to create them.
I decided to line the “carrot top” with the green and white striped paper. I cut a strip just larger than the size I needed, turned the paper over and traced around the shape with a pencil. I did this twice for each side of the box.
I cut around my trace lines using my craft knife but scissors work just as well. It’s up to you what you use per your comfort level.
I cut a strip of this paper highlighting the colors I thought my grandson would like. The two rows of polka dots were the perfect width for this box. Not too overwhelming so the goodies would still show through.
I wanted to add a little tag that had a little boy look so I used one of the shapes from my Stampin’ Up! Chalk Talk dies and an old stamp set I had with a caterpillar. It’s a cute spring look for a boy theme I think.
Wishing you a great day!
