It’s not often that I work with the color orange and it’s not often than I make something so totally casual, fun and whimsical. Well, the stars aligned and today I’m sharing sweet Easter Treats I have ready to give to some of my little buddies who would not particularly appreciate an over the top lace and filigree creation. See, to be honest, they want the candy! What crafter wouldn’t want to make it tantalizing buy giving them just the right wrappings? These have been done for quite some time and it took an act of total will power not to dive in and eat it all up. Well, I did sample one of those goodies yesterday and to my surprise it wasn’t chocolate like I thought but creamy carrot cake (candy) – who knew?
Might you recognize that flower? Ah hunh, the same one that went on my card yesterday in my Clean Shabby Post. Back when I was playing with the flower I thought it would make an excellent carrot top! Snicker – this was fun (hard to photograph, but fun). I used clear acetate craft sheets to cut Spellbinders What’s the Point to make the pointed box. I filled it up with Hersheys Carrot Cake Candy Kisses then topped the box with a three layer flower made using Spellbinders Petal Pusher. The cute tag is from Spellbinders Giving Makes You Happy.
Designer Note: I tried lots of different glues to get the outcome I wanted with the clear acetate. On attempt number five I used plain old double sided Scotch Tape, and it was a winner!!
Rubber Stamps: None
Craft Paper: Bazzell Carmel Apple, Clear Acetate Sheets, Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White 80lb Smooth
Accessories: Spellbinders What’s the Point, Spellbinders Petal Pusher, Spellbinders Giving Makes You Happy, Hug Snug Oatmeal Seam Binding, Pearl Brad, Scotch Permanent Double Sided TapeHugs to you friends! Easter’s coming – so many reasons to celebrate! I hope you have wonderful family and worship time ahead.
Totally adorable Becca! I just wish you had posted them sooner, so I could get the supplies before Easter! I will definitely be making these next year. Hope you have a blessed Easter! Hugs!
OK Becca, these are over the top adorable….GREAT idea and we are all falling in love with spoon flowers now. I wish I could find similar buttons but there is always hope! ( I should have collected them over the years but didn’t) Love this idea….oh, carrot cake kisses, I gotta try and find those too….
I love these…I have a cake slice die that I may substitute since I don’t own what you used. The carrot cake sounds yummy… my fav cake. I saw a blog where the designer used clear cake piping bags to make a similar project. All very clever. For your adhesive, try Scotch brand double sided vellum tape. The trick to making it go invisible is to burnish it really well. I’ve used it on acetate and it’s the best I’ve found for clear acetate or vellum. Thanks for such a clever project.
Happy Easter from a follower from Sweden! Thank you for all beautiful sharings.
Great project Becca. Beautiful presentation. Have a great Easter.
Well, Becca, these are cute as can be! This project highlights so well your “out of the box” creativity…I’m not sure I would have seen the carrot tops in those flowers. I love, love, love it when you share. Thank you! Sandy
Adorable little Easter gift! So creative.
How clever is that? Thanks for sharing – lots of options on that for any holiday/gift occasion.
Hi Becca, It doesn’t matter the theme or style you make it work. Adorable treat holders. Congratulations. I’ve been out of town and out of touch with your posts but am catching up and having a post-vacation entertaining time. Barbara
What fabulous Easter gifts, love them.
Love & hugs

These are adorable, love, love it. Christine S
Hi Becca. What buddy would not appreciate one of your filigree and lace creations? I can’t believe my eyes when I read that! But the carrots do look good. I’ve tried Hersheys chocolate here in the UK but have to say I didn’t like it much. Sorry. I watched a TV programme a while ago which talked about the global differences in chocolate products and peoples tastes. Amazing differences. I recall it’s what your brought up with thst you like. So reckon you would probably not ike our chocolate much either! Each to their own. Happy Easter.
These are SO CUTE BECCA!!!! Yes, I think I would have a hard time holding back from scarfing them all down too! Carrot cake sounds QUITE APPROPRIATE! LOL SUPER JOB on these BEAUTIES!!!! I’d say, “Award Winning Carrots” to me! ;)
Your friends will be so pleased with your gifts Becca, i hope you all have a very Happy Easter.

Love what you did with the flower die, making it into leaves for the top of the carrot.
Have a wonderful Easter.
Very pretty..love the spin on leaves…Happy Easter Becca
Happy Easter Becca and I just love your little boxes of candy. I am sure they will go over a treat.
Happy Easter Becca. It’s Good Friday here in New Zealand and a beautiful day after the storms of the last couple of days. Looks like its going to be a lovely Easter Weekend. I love the carrot tops they are awesome. Take care.
This is such a cute idea! Will definitely keep it in mind for next year!
Have a Happy & Holy Easter!
Many blessings to you & your loved ones x
How cute is this. Looks Amazing
Wish I was coming to your Easter bash!!! Lucky kids! Such beauty to be broken into for the candy :(
Oh my gosh!!!! How clever and cute. Love this idea and might have to borrow it. That flower is very versatile. how fun!
Well those are just about the cutest carrots ever!! What a clever idea. You are brilliant, Beccal.
This is so cute. I’d love for the Easter Bunny to drop one off at my house. Empty though. No candy. I gotta get rid of some of this weight. Hah!
Good morning Becca and a Happy Easter, these are so sweet!!! I’m going to look for the Hershey Kisses here!!! I do hope I can get them, carrot cake my favourite. Seventeen years ago we were in the States for Christmas, tradition here is to hang chocolate on the tree. I searched everywhere asked everyone in the shops but no one knew what I was on about, so I bought bags of Hershey Kisses needle and thread and sat with my two daughters and we made our own!!! Bless you Becca for reminding me!!!
Have a good one!!!

Lots of love from Patricia xx
Good morning Becca,
OOOoooo can i be one of your little buddies that gets the candy kisses, please, please, please? What a great idea Becca and i am sure your real little buddies will be more that happy with their Easter gift instead of card, i know i would, lol. My “little” boy is 16 and looking forward to rolling his easter egg down the stairs as we only have one hill in our village and its the road down to Mum’s house but the people in the village use it as a race track and my son has no awareness of traffic or anything else when he is in enjoyment mode of rolling his egg. Autism might give us problems but i have a beautiful and kindness itself in my son so i am so very lucky. Have a good weekend flower
love and crafty hugs

So glad you posted
And a very HOPPY EASTER EGG to you as well, Becca!
HE IS RISEN!
Hi Becca, these little gifts look super and I can’t see anybody wanting to turn them away! Very tantalising being able to see the acetate packet. Hugs Christine xx
Somehow I missed these. They are gorgeous
WOUW these are sooo fun and soo cute Becca. Wish I´d seen these a bit earlier, then I would´ve made some of these for my gtrandkids, but now I have bought eegs for them, so maybe next year for these, but they´re sure fun and awesome.
Amazing! You seem to be able to make even sweet treats look elegantly beautiful!
Those are awesome!! Who knew such a flavor of Hershey Kisses existed?!!!
These are wonderful, Becca! I’m sure they will be much appreciated!
