easter carrot containers {diy}

I am always inspired by people who make really cool containers with paper.  I love how festive you can get with it–how you can make a vessel to fit with any theme.  A couple of years ago I went to a Stampin’ Up party and we made sour cream containers to hold candies.  So stinkin’ cute.

We, I mean the Easter Bunny, will be putting these sour-cream containers-turned-crafty carrots into the Easter baskets this year.


Your supplies needed include:

  • Patterned Paper cut to 4.5 x 5.5 inches
  • Treats to fill
  • Double Stick Tape
  • Green paper cut to 2.25 x about 3″


The orange patterned papers were created just for this craft and can be downloaded here and here.  The bunny print was my husband’s idea.  Cute, right?

The tutorial I used is at TidBits of My Life…there are some good visuals to help you along.  I used peanut butter cups to fill, two in each.  I didn’t eat any, I swear.  Ok, I ate one.  But just one.
