Cone-Shaped Carrot Treat Holders

It's finally starting to feel like SPRING! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the world is beginning to wake up from it's winter sleep!



To Welcome Spring! I thought it would be fun to make cone-shaped Carrot Treat Holders.

You will need:
Orange Cardstock
Green Patterned Paper
Cuttlebug & Embossing Folder
Pinking Shears
Double Sided Sticky Tape
Ribbon
Tag
Flowers
Button
String


First, trace a circle onto the orange cardstock.



Next, cut the circle into four equal sections.



Emboss your cardstock using the Cuttlebug and desired embossing folder. I chose to use the Swiss Dots folder. Trim the curved edge of your circle section with pinking shears.



Adhere double-sided sticky tape to the edge of the cone and roll up into a cone shape.



Cut a piece of green patterned paper into a 6" X 8" rectangle. Gently roll into a tube and cut into one end every 1/4" to create fringe. Leave about an inch along the bottom to attach to your carrot cone.



Line the inside top edge of your carrot cone with double-sided sticky tape. Slide the 1" uncut section of the green patterned paper tube into the carrot and attach firmly using your fingers to press down and secure it into place.

Fill the cone with your treat. Gather the fringe together and tie closed with a length of ribbon. Decorate a tag with flowers and button. Tie around the carrot. And there you have it! A fun treat to hand out to family and friends! :)




Thanks for coming by!

  21. I love this project, wonderful use of texture and function. I have a purely technical question - where did you get the circle template? I haven't seen this before and it would solve so many problems for me. Also -- longtime fan. Just wanted to mention it.

  22. The circle template is by Crafter's Workshop. It was produced in 2006. Here is a link. http://www.thecraftersworkshop.com/Letter%20Templates.html I hope that helps! :)
