Hello there! I'm finally back from the wasn't quite that bad. But 2 months of this cold/sinus virus stuff and I was starting to feel like a zombie:( I need to let my grandbabies know that they can quit sharing for awhile:) I made this carrot treat holder for my Hostess this month using the Polka Dot Cone Cellophane Bags from the Occasions Catalog.

For the tag I used the set Birthday Blooms with Tangelo Twist and Pear Pizzazz ink~which I stamped off before stamping. I used the Note Tag Punch to punch it out and the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch for the Old Olive Baker's Twine to go through. I made the flower using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack with So Saffron Cardstock. I painted it with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush and added a Basic Pearl to the center. I tied it with a bow using Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon.

For the carrot, I used Sweet Li'l Things DSP, measuring 4" x 8". I scored the paper at 1/4" on the long side. I then cut along one of the seams of the cone bag and used it as a template by tracing the cone shape onto the paper. I repeated the process for the other piece and used Tombow Glue to adhere the pieces together, forming a cone. I trimmed the top off and added In Color Washi Tape. I added a Tea Lace Paper Doily and wrapped some Old Olive Baker's Twine around it. I then slid the decorated cone into the bag. I added a Reeses Peanut Butter Egg and tied the bag shut with a bow. I tried my darndest to cram 2 eggs inside but they wouldn't fit...sorry Brenda, I tried! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
