If you have been around the blog for awhile (or me anywhere really) then the idea of carrot tags being shared here comes as no surprise. I have TONS of carrot crafts and projects and decorations because — well because I love the colors orange and green together really. I am excited to share this carrot tags tutorial with you because it is super fun and the end masterpiece so original. Every single one can be made a little different, just like real carrots. This post is sponsored by Therm-O-Web but the ideas and opinions are my own, starting with my opinion that iCraft Super Tape is the best ever!
Material Needed for Carrot Tags
- iCraft Super Tape from Therm-O-Web
- Flock Transfer Paper (also from Therm-O-Web)
- Fabric and/or Decorative Paper
- Hole Punch
- Twine or Cording (Or Yarn or Embroidery Floss or Whatever…)
- Free Carrot Pattern (Downloadable)
Steps to Make Carrot Tags
Start by cutting out the chipboard pieces. You will need tags for the base and these can be any size or shape that you like best. Actually the carrot alone could be the tag. So first, cut out the tags.
Second, cut out the carrots. The free printable pattern has a couple of sizes but feel free to doodle your own carrots too.
The fun part comes next — decorating the carrots with flock transfer paper, fabric and ribbon. To do this, you will need to get your iCraft Super Tape ready.
Put strips of the two sided tape down the entire carrot.
Peel the other side of the tape covering from every other piece and stick ‘Orange Glow’ flock transfer paper pieces to them.
Peel the remaining pieces of protective covering and add ribbon and fabric pieces. Flip it over and trim off the edges.
From a ‘Green Envy” flock transfer sheet, cut out the top for the carrot.
Use the Super Tape to adhere the top to the bottom. I made a second carrot using the same method but flipping it to create a top with the strips and a bottom that is all orange flock. Use that amazing Super Tape to attach the carrots to the tags.
Lastly, punch holes in the tags and add twine to create ties.
I really do think the carrot tags are fabulous. I love them for adding to gifties, wreaths and all the things.
Other Papercraft Easter Ideas
Papercrafted flowers can be used tons of ways too AND they could be done like the carrot tags! I love them for note cards so much. Get the details for that over here on the blog.
Back to those carrots, I think they would make a darling garland too so I am off to make a few more for that decoration to add to my home.
Carrot Crafts are some of my favorites to make. The colors green and orange are just so perfect together. Here are eight that I think you will really love. The cool thing about crafting is that once a project is made and the technique learned, it can be applied to making tons of other creations with different themes. This rocks because it translates to all of the decoration ideas, holidays, seasons and celebrations.
