Here’s a simple way to make those fun carrot-shaped treat bags you see this time of year – for much less than it costs to buy the cone shaped plastic bags!
- plastic treat bags
- Carrot Cake Hershey’s Kisses (or other orange candy)
- Fringe Scissors
- green cardstock
- ribbon or twine
- clear tape
To make your treat bags the right shape, all you need to do is fold in each corner to a point and use clear tape to hold it together!
Fill with your favorite candy (I actually think these Carrot Cake Kisses are really yummy!) and close the bag with a small rubber band or piece of string.
These fringe scissors are SO fun to use! Cut a strip of green cardstock (mine was about 3 x 8.5 inches) and add the fringe to the long edge using the scissors. Make sure to leave a 1/2 inch section uncut so you can wrap it around the top of the bag.
Wrap the fringe around the top of the bag and use a small piece of tape to keep it tight. Tie a bow with ribbon or twine and you’re all set!
Now they’re ready to add to Easter baskets or give to neighbors, teachers, and friends!
