Welcome to MyPaperCrafting.com's 24 Carrot EGG-Stravaganza! If you've come from visiting my wonderful friend Charlotte at A Little Bit of Detail then you're in the right spot. If you've joined us in mid-hop, then head on over to MyPaperCrafting.com and start at the beginning, because I'm the caboose on this party train!
Easter is just around the corner and I know that the kiddos in my life are gearing up for chocolate bunnies and egg hunts. I made these cute little candy baskets for my youngest nieces and nephews. You will notice that they are "no-frills" -- just the basics for the 5 and under crowd -- I didn't want any trim, eyelets, brads or bling for little hands to pull off and eat! I have used bunches of Melin's wonderful digis from PaperCraftingWorld.com -- they are just too cute and perfect for this project!
This little box is super easy to make (here's the tutorial). I just added some ribbon for a handle, a die cut circle and a cute little digi for decoration. The candies are adorned with die-cuts and digis, too.
The die-cut circles were all cut using the Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge. The "scalloped" edge circle used on the boy's boxes is from the Cricut Easter 2010 cartridge and is cut at 1 3/4". The "scalloped" edge circle used on the girl's boxes is from Cricut's Cake Basics cartridge and is also cut at 1 3/4".
Each basket holds three pieces of chocolate candy (I used Dove Promises). Here's the list of digis I used, with links to the files on PaperCraftingWorld.com:
- Bunny Furry with Big Egg
- Bunny with Basket
- Bunny with Big Carrot
- Chick in Egg Sitting
- Chick in Bunny Ears
- Lamb I Love Ewe
And the other winner will receive this new (in the package) 7" Cuttlebug Embossing Border set. There are five borders and the set is called "Measure by Measure."
Thanks so much for hopping with us today! And remember, if you missed the first part of the line-up head on over to MyPaperCrafting.com and start at the beginning -- you don't want to miss a single project!
