Craft an easy to make carrot gift box.

It’s a fun way to wrap a few candies, or a bit of cash, or other small gift.

Let your kids leave something in one for the Easter Bunny, and maybe he’ll leave a small gift or note for them.

Carrot Gift Boxes are a great idea for favors, too, and kids can easily make them.

It might be fun to hide a few carrot boxes along with eggs if you are doing an Easter Egg Hunt.

You can use any card stock or scrap booking paper. Or even gift wrap if it isn’t too thin.

Supplies.

Orange Paper, 3×11 inches

Green Pipe Cleaners or Ribbon

Ruler

Scissors

Paper Punch

Scoring Tool

Pencil

How to Make a Carrot Gift Box.

1. Find the center point of each side of the paper and mark it.

Tips.

I liked the look of this printed orange paper for a carrot. If you only have plain orange paper, you can stamp it with a design.
