FREE Carrot Top .studio file and Road Trip Pics

365 Photo of the Day

I’m going to post a couple of photos each day for the next few days from our weekend away down to Steamboat Rock.  Just a few each day as I have many.  Could get overwhelming here!

That, of course, is Steamboat Rock.  As you can see, it is shaped like a steamboat.  And this large and beautiful landmark is within Steamboat Rock State Park in Washington State, USA.  We are so lucky to live so close to the border that we have access to places like this. 

My dashing Mr and I have had many years of skipping off to this luscious locale – each time we go it evokes precious memories.  This time we were fortunate to take a cabin, because really they are not rentable on the “shoulder” season – but we were fortunate that one was opened to us on an “emergency” basis.

Can you fathom waking up to THIS view? 

Sigh sigh!

Ok, so I’m going to stop here and post a few more tomorrow.  Now I’ll Show & Tell a fun Easter table decoration you can easily make!

FUN DIY:

And just how CUTE is this?  These are some fun Easter carrots you can make for place settings for your family Easter table. 

INSTRUCTIONS:

These are super simple to make.  Just cut a rectangle out of designer paper 8 inches long by 6 inches wide.  You will get two “tubes” out of one 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper.  Run double sided tape (or glue) on the outside of one of the the long sides of the paper, then roll it into a tube. 

Flatten one end, with the seam in the middle on the back.  Tuck some double sided tape inside to seal, or glue.  I used my crimper to make a wavy edge on it.

Now make sure you’ve cut however many green carrot tops out of cardstock using the FREE file provided below.

Next, fill your “carrot” with treats (chocolate eggs, jelly beans) and when it’s full then flatten the OPPOSITE sides to the ones at the bottom.  The ‘tube’ will turn into a wedge or “carrot” shape naturally.  Now use either double sided tape or glue and, inserting the end of the carrot top in, seal this end.  You now have your carrot. 

But finally, find some bright pretty ribbon, tie a bow and glue it onto the top.  Voila!

  2. What a gorgeous park! And I have never heard on it. Of course, I am on the other side of the country.

    Thank you so much for the cute carrot top file. I know several people to give a small Easter treat to, and this is perfect!
