Carrot Paper Cone Easter Gift Wrap

Celebrate Easter with this fun Carrot Paper Cone that makes for a great gift wrap.  I love how EASY and FUN this is to create.  Fill with trinkets, carrots (in a bag) for a healthy treat, or just go crazy and fill it with a sweet treat, like candy!  This is ideal for a class or group gift, a party favor and more!  Join Me in growing some sweet smiles this Easter and let me deliver some fun to you and your friends!
Create this Carrot Paper Cone* with:
Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper (#126902)
Gumball Green card stock (#126840)
Silicone Craft Sheet (#127853)
Fringe Scissors (#133325)
Say It Your Way Personalized Stamp (#132852)
If you enjoy this card and want to have some fun crafting with me, CLICK HERE and RSVP ASAP for my Upcoming Classes!!  Most classes are FREE with a qualified purchase!!
 
* See my Step-By Step tutorial HERE on how I've made other paper cones.    See the Varieties of sizes and uses, too!
I couldn't resist dropping some sweets off at our Bible Study.  They lovingly teach my toddler and have been a great source of love and support in my highs and lows in life.  I created these 30 of these cute Carrot Paper Cones* in less than 20 minutes.  Pre-Boneing the paper makes for quick and easy creating.  See my How-To here!
 
These 4" squares* of the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper in Pumpkin Pie makes for a cute polka dot carrot.  With two sides to our Designer Series Papers, you can have fun with a this look that is coordinated, much like an envelope liner.  (*Create 9 of these Carrot Paper Cones from one sheet of 12" Designer Series Papers with no waste!!)
 
Creating these 'greens' is easy with the Fringe Scissors and the Gumball Green In-Color strips.  Simply folded in half, two strips make for a perfect topper!  After sealing the paper cone, add a dash of hot glue to the top and adhere these strips for a sweet look.  If I had used a paper cutter, this process would have taken a longer time.  Here, the Fringe Scissors cut the time in more than 1/2 and made for cute strips!
Load these cuties into a basket for an Easter party, Spring party, Garden Party or Tea, for a School hand-out (add small packages of carrots or even fruit/veggie themed erasers, etc.).  These cute baskets make for a fun farmer's market vibe.  (Add a mini carrot cake muffin for a sweet treat at a breakfast brunch!)
 
 
I adore, yes adore, the new Say It Your Way Stamps!!  Here is a fun way to personalize or sign my projects.  If YOU create hand-stamped pretties or just love to craft, SIGN your projects, add a fun saying and more with the Say It Your Way stamps!!

Loaded with some sweets, this Carrot Paper Cone delivered smiles and memories!  Perfect to hold a few sweets (versus a gift bag or basket) this paper cone will leave a good taste in their mouths (lol).  No matter WHAT you place inside, this is a fun way to take normal to the WOW.  Join me in creating smiles this Easter... and let me know what you think!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
