Paper Carrot Treat Box

Paper Carrot Treat Box

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.
