The best part is how easy they are to make!

You can put one together in just a few minutes with your Cricut. In fact, this is the very first thing that I made with my new Cricut Maker!
I’m going to level with you here… I’ve actually had my maker for a few months but I’ve been too intimidated by it to use it.
I finally dusted it off for this project, and I’m SO glad I did because it’s such fun to use! So if you’re in the same boat then this carrot box is the perfect beginner Cricut project.
But you can still make this cute Easter treat box without a Cricut! I’ve included the PDF files for you so you can print them out and cut your box by hand if you want to.
Enough chat! Let me show you how to make your own fun Easter carrot treat box.

How to make the Easter Treat Box
The first step is to cut out your cardstock.
If you’re using a Cricut and uploading the SVG file to the Cricut Design Space:
The SVG has the orange carrot box as well as two leaf pieces which are stacked on top of each other.
The yellow dotted lines are score lines.
For the carrot you’ll need to change the score layer (the one with just lines) from Cut to Score.
The ellipses and the line on top of the lid flap are cut lines so you can leave them as they are.
For the leaves you’ll need to change the score layer (the one with just one line line) from Cut to Score, and then attach it to the green layer. Make sure you do this for each leaf!
Ungroup everything, then attach all the lines to the orange layer.
If you’re cutting by Hand (without a cutting machine):
Open either the A4 or US Letter PDF file.
Each file has a few different options for you to choose:
- A plain colored version for printing onto white cardstock
- Colored version with carrot markings for printing onto white cardstock
- A plain outline version for printing onto colored cardstock
Just choose the version that you’d like to make, and print out the carrot template and the leaf pieces.
If you’d like to make a version with different markings you can print out the plain version, and then add your own markings however you’d like to do it!
Once you’ve printed everything out, cut out the pieces with scissors or a craft knife like an X-acto.
Score along the dotted score lines with a bonefolder or scoring tool.
Assemble your carrot treat box!
Once you’ve cut all the pieces out, carefully fold each piece along the score lines.
Glue or double sticky tape the tab on the left side to the underside of the right edge to form a carrot shaped box.
Line up the two leaf pieces and gently push the thin bottom edges through the slit on the lid of your carrot box. Open the tabs up and glue or tape them to the underside of the lid.
And that’s all there is to it! Your carrot treat box is ready for you to fill with Easter or spring themed goodies and candies. These carrot boxes would also be a cute way to hide a Easter egg hunt clue!
I’ve filled mine with mini chocolate eggs. The finished box can hold quite a lot of chocolate, so you could always use some shredded or crumpled up tissue paper inside to take up a bit more room, especially if you’re trying to moderate your kids’ sugar intake over the Easter holidays!
