Easter Favor - Carrot Box Tutorial

My friend shared with me a project she made from Stampin Up. It was a cute little carrot box. I loved it...

Then thought I would give this box another try with a little different look. I found some orange-ish paper in my stash. I printed out the carrot box template that I found at THIS LINK. My carrots are not as big - I printed two on one 8 1/2 x 11 page.

I had some butterfly orange - ish paper and I also had some orange paper that I stamped some flourishes on. I forgot to take pictures of that - oops. Remember my shamrock? I stamped the cut out carrot like that using a brown and a red. After stamping I scored the lines, folded and hot glued the carrot together.

Here is the carrot I stamped flourished with. 

Here is the butterfly paper one. I inked the edges of both with brown ink.

I changed up the top by cutting off one of the flaps - gluing it to the other and folding it down because I wanted the box to be easily accessible. I also punched a hold and inserted some raffia....

and then I tied a knot in the raffia and hot glued that knot secure.

So there is my spin on the Stampin' Up Carrot Box.


  1. That looks really cute and they would be easy to store after the holiday though I think you could keep those out all year round.

  2. They look amazing! The picture makes the carrots almost look like wood and I think they look wonderful in the wire basket.

  3. YOURS are WAY better!!! Love the vintage look and yes, I agree -- they look like wood! Beautiful display!

  4. Cute!! But I LOVE the shelf you made from the door!!! :) Thanks for linking!

  5. These carrots are so clever ! I love them

  6. These are gorgeous! I've seen some of these carrot boxes, and they were cute and all, but I love your interpretation of them. The stamping and the raffia totally make these stand out.
