carrot shaped easter boxes | doodlebug design

Hi  friends! I wanted to hop on today and share one of my most favorite Easter projects EVER!

I absolute adore the "Easter Express" collection from Doodlebug Design and I knew as soon as I opened it up that it was going to make some super cute little treat containers for some friends!

I used a "carrot box" cut file (HERE), along with some "petite prints" paper to create the carrot shaped boxes.

 The tops are tied with chunky doodle twine, then I added some shaped clips to the bows - I think they look like sweet little charms!  I also added a small strip of coordinating doodle tape to each box, about 1/3 of the way up from the bottom!

The tags are simple die-cut circles from various papers from the 6x6 paper pad, and embellished with lots of sweet animal stickers!

I used foam adhesive behind the stickers, because I just love that teensy bit of dimension it adds.

Of course, I had to fill them up with some of my favorite Easter candies before I gave them away:

Wouldn't these be cute tucked into an Easter basket?  I think they would!

Do you like to create your own packaging for treats?  I'd love to see what you're giving away this Easter - please leave a link in the comment section below!

Happy Easter!

  1. Where have I been that I haven't seen your blog?! I have been creating a number of cards recently using a lot of patterned paper. Some of the paper pads are new, some I've had for a loong time - boy, I'm so glad I didn't get rid of the older paper. Because wouldn't you know, it really came in handy for some of the card designs. Bo Bunny was always a favorite of mine and I still love their beautiful colors and sweet whimsy. The carrots are darling, and the images perfect for decorating.

    1. Well, I'm glad you found me!! :) I have had my blog for years, but haven't been the best at updating - I'm trying to add more projects more often. Thanks for your kind comments! :)

  2. Oops, I meant to say Doodlebug, not Bo Bunny (although, I think both have a similar look, and I love both companies).
