Another project from the All About Easter class earlier this week were Easter Treat Holders. The first project holds a carrot shaped treat holder. Last month at our team meeting, we were able to make a similar holder. Thank you Gloria for the idea! It is a project that I knew would be perfect to include in the All About Easter class. The carrot treat containers are available at Dollar Tree and the boxes are perfect to hold the carrot erect. Another of the treat projects is a CASE from Angie Juda. For both projects, simply cut and score cardstock to create the holder. Refer to the details below the photos for more details.
Don’t you agree each box is perfect for holding the Easter treats? Either of the treat holders are perfect to use as table favors. Or just use when you want to give someone a special Easter treat. The carrot treat holder is sized large enough that you can add a non-candy item such as nuts or a package of garden seeds.
Each box is quick and easy so you can make multiples at a time. Simply cut the cardstock, score, cut the opening, and fold. Add Designer Series Paper and embellish. How Sweet It Is and Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper are used for the projects above.
Carrot Treat Box Details
- Start with a 2-3/4″ x 11″ piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock. Score the cardstock at 4″, 6-1/4″, 7-1/2″ and 9-3/4″.
- Cut selected designer series paper to 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8 and a 2-3/8 x 1-1/8″.
- To create the cutout to insert carrot, use the 2″ circle punch or the layering circle dies to cut a hole in the cardstock. The panel for the hole is between the 7`1/2″ and 9-3/4″ score lines.
- Attach the designer series paper as shown in the photo above.
- Apply Tear and Tape adhesive to the smaller end panel and seal to form box shape.
- Stamp the bunny and carrot onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The stamps are from the Best Bunny Photopolymer Stamp Set in the Annual Catalog. Highlight the bunny with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Write Marker and punch using the 1-1/2″ circle punch. Color the carrot with the Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green Stamper Write markers. You’ll need to fussy cut the carrot. Use the 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch to cut Pineapple Punch cardstock. Attach the bunny onto the scallop circle with adhesive and add the carrot using a mini-glue dot.
- Embellish by adding slip a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon and use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the bunny scallop piece over the ribbon.
Visit Angie Juda at My Chic ‘n Scratch for details on creating the Easter Chick treat box. I embellished her design by adding flowers using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack from the Occasions Catalog. The finishing touch is adding green paper shred under the chick.
