In the church I attend, we are encouraged to befriend others in our congregation by going on monthly visits, sharing a message of hope, and just taking time to show love. It is an initiative that I can definitely get behind. Additionally, I’m a big fan of showing love through gifts and service so I often share treats with friends and neighbors for holidays or just for fun! This Easter, I wanted something simple and festive that I could easily throw together and deliver. There is nothing better than a handful of Cadbury eggs this time of year (did you hear they have a cookies and cream version!), and tucked inside a printable paper carrot treat box? The Easter bunny has nothing on you.

Paper Carrot Treat Box
**You can find a template on Cricut Design Space if you search for carrot box
- 12X12″ pieces of cardstock in shades of orange
- Orange and green acrylic paint. We used various shades of both
- 1″ strips of crepe paper in shades of green
- Paint Brush
- Exacto knife
- Glue stick
- Paper grass for filler
- Cadbury eggs or other sweet treat
- Cut out carrot templates with your die cut machine or by hand
- Paint on horizontal stripes with paint to resemble carrot lines
- Score lines with an Exacto knife to facilitate folding and create folds
- Fill each box with grass and goodies and the glue shut
- On the strips of crepe paper, use green paint to texturize them
- Curl the crepe paper and cut ends at a slant
- Insert 3 pieces into the holes at the top of the carrot and twist to secure.
