3/5 Stampin' Up! Petal Cone Carrot Favors for Easter

I decided to get a head start on planning my Big Shot Class that I will be holding at the end of the month. This is one of the projects that we will make!

I just love the Petal Cone Die that Stampin' Up! introduced in the Occasions Mini. Won't this be a cute place favor at our Easter Dinner this year? You can fill it with Easter treats . . . or even some smaller Easter toys if you don't want to do candy.

Before cutting the cone out, I wheeled the paper with Tangerine Tango ink using the Jumbo Wheel Whimsy. I get so much mileage out of that particular wheel because it makes such quick and cute backgrounds. I used a stamp from the set called Perfect Punches to create the name plate. The smaller oval is punched from Naturals White paper and I used the fine tip end of the Garden Green marker to write the names. The bit of Very Vanilla 1/8" Taffeta adds a sweet touch.

Edited to Add:
Due to the many questions about how to attach the carrot top to the carrot, I created a short video. Just click HERE.

Very cute! I purchased that die also. But how did you get the leaves to adhere to the top of the carrot?
