How to make a Paper Box in a Carrot shape for Easter
Begin by tracing out a circle! A dinner plate or side plate will do nicely and give you different sized box. Personally, I think a side plate is a great size. Fold in half and cut across the middle.
Once you have your semi circles, fold in half once, twice and then a third time. You will have a thin wedge.
Cut a round shape across the top – the image shared here is from our strawberry gift box, which is a little “shorter” and chubbier, yours will have a longer pointed end.
Open up your paper and you should have 8 segments, rounded at the top and with a hole. Cut AWAY 3 segments. You won’t be needing these.
Fold you up the remaining 6 secgments to form a the carrot shaped box.
Fill with small treats (or leave empty if using as decorations).
Run some ribbon or tulle through the two opposing sides of the gift box to seal.
