A Lucky Winner....

Karen F.!! You're the latest winner of our rubber stamp giveaway!!! Please email your address to me at dandelion.designs@hawaiiantel.net so I can get them on their way to you!!! For those of you who didn't win...don't fret...we're going to do another one right now!!!

Here's another Easter idea, with a pattern you can download here. Cut out the 2 pattern pieces in coordinating colors (use a lightweight paper), overlap the 2 pieces and glue together as shown below:


Now roll the piece up into a cone shape...make sure you roll it all the way to the point. This part gets a little tricky...but if you roll the paper really well, it will hold the shape better while you're taping it together. Apply double stick tape along one edge. Start from 1-1/2" away from the bottom point up to the top edge. Apply glue close to the bottom point. Form a cone and adhere the edges to form a cone as shown (the edges should overlap by around 1/4"):


Now, fill your carrot with whatever you want, pinch the top closed and tie off with a ribbon. I've decorated this carrot with my new "Easter Rabbit", "Honey Bunny" and easter egg stamps:



Here's the stamps you can win:



If you'd like to win these stamps...leave me a comment by midnight, Friday, February 27 (Hawaii time). I'll announce the winner (picked at random) on Saturday, February 28. Good luck and thanks for stopping by today!!!

What a clever idea. I've seen a cellophane bag that is similar but would never have thought to make it out of paper. With all the ideas you've given us it's gonna be hard to decide what to make. The stamps are really cute, too.
