I have a fun little printable Easter carrot treat box for you today as my monthly projects for 12 Months of Martha! These are super easy to put together~ in fact, my Ella LOVED helping with them. We made them for her preschool class and she is so excited to take them to her friends.
You will need:
- assorted green ribbons (sorry, I don't remember where mine came from; they were in my stash)
- template (download here.Please note, this template is a little rough and imperfect because I drew some of it... I will try to polish up a little more, but as you can see it works! Also please note, it is free for personal use only. Not for resale or reposting on other sites.)
- template printed onto orange cardstock (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
- double sided adhesive tape
- scoring board (mine is Martha Stewart)
First, print the template out onto your cardstock. I used different shades of orange for mine. You could also use a fun pattern, but just make sure to print on the BACK of the sheet. The guide lines you see will be on the inside of the carrots.
I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to score along the dotted lines. Tip: The carrot doesn't have the typical straight edges, so it is much harder to line up each time. I used a permanent marker to mark the scoring board above and below the crease where I want to score my carrot to save A LOT of time having to realign each carrot. The permanent marker comes off super quickly with a little rubbing alcohol when you are done.
P.S. I obviously need a manicure and some sun.... 😉
I did all of my carrots assembly line style. Once I was finished scoring, I went and folded along each score line.
Be sure to use a strong double sided adhesive tape on the tab to close your carrots.
Then fill each carrot with yummy Easter candy. I look forward to these eggs every year!
To close each carrot, secure two of the rounded top petals to each other with the double sided adhesive like I show in the picture below. Punch holes in the other two petals.
Thread a ribbon through the holes and tie. Bows, ties, and slip knots all look really pretty. Here are the two ways I tied mine:
I also found the eggs in white chocolate.... mmmmmmmm.
I think they turned out pretty cute! What do you think?
I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did!

Seriously, the cutest! Pinning. xo
How cute are these?!! You are amazing and creative! Big basket filled with Easter grass and these would be so whimsical and sweet as guest favors - hey, they would be great for Halloween, too, with some spooky ribbons. Oh dear, my head is twirling with ideas for these fun little boxes!
