I saw some super cute Carrot treat boxes on pintrest the other day but you had to make them out of scrapbook paper and who has time to go out looking for scrapbook paper plus they didnt have a tutorial to show you how to make these. So I've made these fun treat boxes even easier to make for you ladies. These could be great friends and neighbor gifts but I also think they would go great in those easter baskets as well.
To get started Print this out on your home printer, card stock works best but I did mine on regular printer paper and it turned out fine.
1. For the carrot part, cut out the orange patterned rectangle. Fold it into a tube like shape lengthwise. Use the clear tape down the side to create the tube. Be careful not to crease the paper, you are going to want it round.
2. Tape the bottom end shut with the clear tape. Leaving the top open to put candy in it. Put candy in it ;) Later the top end is going to be stapled shut on the opposite side you sealed the bottom so it will poof out.
3. Cut up the green pattern rectangle into different length strips for the grassy top. Position the grassy top strips just inside the top of the carrot. Press both top sides of carrot together to make a sort of grassy top sandwich with the strips. Staple the three layers together to secure the grassy strips.
4. Cut out the label circles and tape the smaller bunny circle onto the bigger yellow circle. Tape this on the front of the carrot to cover up staples.
Here is another fun printable to help bring some extra spring colors in your Easter decor! These little love bunnies are just adorable, and you can sport them in your home as well. Just click on the image below to enlarge it and save it to your computer to print at home.
Hoppy Easter! ;)
When we were decorating for Easter the week I wanted to bring a little more Christ into our Easter, and I thought some fun chalk art would do just the trick with my favorite Easter message quote from the first presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
You can have this lovely reminder of this message in your home, because I provided the image here for you to copy and download for your own printing. I printed mine small for a small frame that I had but this is a standard paper size that fit in more common frames. You can always mess with the size yourself to get the right size you need for the frame you have.
Happy Easter :)
I am definitely feeling the Spring Fever. Don't get me wrong I love the beautiful winter snow as well but I am definitely a sunny day kind of girl and when easter starts to approach and the spring decorations go up I start feeling like "PROJECT TIME". There is just something about spring that make me want to be productive like no other. Ive gotten very busy designing and making all sorts of easter decorations and treats and here is just one of the many eater printables.
After I designed the flags I just printed them out on my ink jet. To string them together I used some twine string, but you can use anything from ribbon, yarn, or even thin rope. These are best printed on card stock but they will do just fine on regular printing paper which I used. If you are having a hard time with the papers being to flimsy just use a little tape to secure them to the twine, it will help hold the papers straiter across. And this Chevron Easter Bunny Banner just turned out too cute not to share with my lovely EMI readers so here is the free PDF for you to print out your own.
Let me know what you think of the banner, and I hope you have a lovely Easter!

Congratulations to Jennifer Davis!
This is my second leprechaun trap I've helped my kids with last year we made one out of legos. This trap only took us about 45 minutes to think up and make so it should take you even less. ;) We just used a simple square box and reinforced one of the flaps with the other flaps we cut off, by gluing the flaps onto the back of the one remaining flap.
To make the crane we used a few pieces of scrap cardboard and to make them strong we hot glued a few pieces together so it could hold up the basket of gold. The basket is made from a green soda bottle cap and a strip of construction paper for the handle. To top it off we used my sons fools gold from a summer trip we took last year to trick the leprecaun. Hopefully it will work to catch him because we are tired of all the pranks he pulls every year at our house. I really didn't appreciate him dying our milk green last year or glueing quarters to our sidewalk.
I am almost 99% sure I've had pneumonia for the last three weeks or according to web MD it could possibly be tumors. Also there is a slim possibility that I only have a chest cold and web MD brings out my psychosomatic side. Either way I only get about a day or two grace period until it is time for mom to just suck it up and get back to work. So what happens when mom is sick and the kids get sick too? Im not to proud to say it but TV is what happens... lots and lots of TV... and ice cream. And my new ipad could not have come more in handy than these last few weeks. Because of this handy contraption iGuy (iPad cases) I wasn't afraid to let my wiggly/sickly six year old play around with my new ipad. It was so nice I could dose off with my little inflicted companion next to me in bed while he kept busy watching cartoons on netflix and playing educational game. (Its so weird that when little kids get sick it doesn't look the same as when grown ups get sick. ) The great thing about the iGuy is that its drop tested approved plus it has these really cute little arms that double and perfect hand holders for little hands for a better grip. This cute little iguy can also stand up on his own as well. Ive already had a few of my friends ask me where I got the iGuy cover.
Somehow my son got better after about two days and Im still hacking up a lung in the mornings. But it was just Me, my little guy, and iGuy for two days strait. We really got to know each other and become friends. Now I just have to convince my son to stop faking sick so he can have more sick days in bed with mom and iGuy.
If you would like an iGuy for yourself... Good news... we are going to have a giveaway soon so keep an eye out for it and stop by and enter to win!
So stay well... but if the cold season get you to, may you have a wonderful TV day with lots of ice cream!
