Recently we created a Bunny Birthday Party for one of my daughters.  One of our favourite items from this party were these cute carrot favour bags, which we filled with lots of treats.

They are not difficult to make and the children really loved them.

While we made fairly large Carrot Favour Bags, you can easily vary the size and create exactly what you want.

Today we are posting a simple 5 stage tutorial,  I hope you give them a try at your next Bunny Birthday Party.

To see this party in action visit our Bunny Birthday Party.

Enjoy.

 

Step 1

To create these Carrot Favour Bags you require :

  • Orange card, I used scrap booking card, 
  • Light and Dark Green Crepe paper
  • Glue, sticky tape, sissors and some rubber bands

Step 2

Roll the orange card into the desired shape and glue the underside.  I then placed a rubber band around the carrot to stop them from un-rolling while the glue dried.  I then cut around the top opening to form a even circle.

Step 3

Lay the light green Crepe paper over the Dark green Crepe Paper. Determine how long you want your carrot leaves.  Double that and cut along the whole length of the crepe paper.  Then cut that into smaller sections, as per your carrot size e.g. double the circumfrance measure.

Fold the crepe paper in half and then fold the fold the bottom edge up once for strength.  Cut slits from the other end as per the picture.
