Easter Carrots and a Tutorial!

Good morning to you! I have a fun little Easter treat to share with you! I createdlittle carrot boxes that contain  M &M's to give away to Cort's friends. I used the new Teresa Collin's Bunnies and Chicks CCR. It has the cutest images on them, and these carrot boxes were just calling my name!  I cut them at 4" and scored and folded them.  I decided to make chocolate bunnies to decorate the boxes with.  I used the at 2".  After they were cut I gave them a generous dose of glossy accents.  While those were drying I cut my tags using the Art Philosophy cartridge and a sentiment by Papertrey Ink.  I decided to make grassy tops for the tops of my carrots.  I have a step by step tutorial on how I made them below. : )
Here are the steps to making a carrot top!
Yes.....even my carrot tops had to have glitter!  I just can't help myself!
Here are a few close ups of my treat boxes.....

For those of you who asked about Cort's prom dress....yes, we were successful in finding a dress!  Unfortunately, the one in the store had a few small tears....so we had to order it on line.  It will be here in a couple of weeks.  It is very pretty though! 
Have a great day! Off to clean my very messy scrap room on my day off!

These carrots are just adorable! I may offer to host Easter just so I could put them at each place setting.
Congrats on getting your daughter's prom dress. We did that shopping a couple of weeks ago ourselves :-)
