Happy Easter!

Hi all! WOW its been busy around here!

I am now back to work so no more free days for crafty things! I still have to find some time to clear off the dining room table so we can eat off of it again. I'm sure Mike will be happy when that happens! LOL!
Soooo.. we have a dinner tonight and I thought I'd whip up some quick easter treats for the kiddies. I WAS going to make pop cans, but realized that I hadn't bought enough candy to fill the ones I had! SO...... I searched and was inspired by the icicle boxes I was seeing online and made a carrot box. Now, Its not really looking like a carrot - so I'm just calling them "Carrot Inspired" hehe......

So, its just a really simple box template I found online; I cut it out of orange CS and stamped it with the large swirl from SU's Baroque Motifs set. I punched a couple of holes in the top and tied green ribbons on them. The tags are cut out with a cuttlebug die and I used the Happy Easter stamp from SU's Well Scripted set.

Hope you're all having a fabulous Easter Weekend!

Super cute & totally fun, Kare! The kiddos will love them (and if they don't, then send 'em to me! LOL!).
Hope you have a blessed Easter and congrats again on the new gig!
