Mini Quilled Carrots - Archives

Wow, this post is only 11 years old, and I changed most of the wording since things have changed so much in quilling. These are last minute elements for Easter card/envelope, tags, napkin holders, place cards, scrapbooks, picture frame, Easter thank-you card, etc; three quick carrot styles to make. 

Carrot: 1/8" x 7" tight roll. Shape with a small, pointed dowel and glue inside.

Green leaves: 1/4" x 2.5" strips. Fringe down the edge of the 2.5" strips. Roll around toothpick and glue end. Insert into carrot top halfway and glue. When dry, spread fringe outward with fingertips. 


Carrots: 1/8" x 12" loose roll. Shape in a long teardrop.

Green leaves: 1/8" x 3" pieces. Make three 1/2" loops the same height (accordion folds) and spread out before gluing at bottom. Trim each fold in half lengthwise, making six thin leaves for each carrot. 


Carrots: 1/8" x 7" tight rolls. Shape with a small, pointed dowel and flatten with fingers.

Green leaves: 1/8" x 1" pieces. Cut slivers of paper at various lengths. Glue ends individually into top of carrot until full.

These are my favorite for the cards because they lay so flat.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a blessed Easter. 🌷


Idea: A small tag with "For You" add three carrots, hang tag with pretty ribbon around a bottle of wine for a hostess... Awesome! Or bring it for the person who arranged a restaurant Easter brunch. If you are like me, and aren't going to a brunch this year, make a tag anyway and who knows what next year will bring. Non-alcoholic Welches Sparkling White Grape Juice is another gift suggestion.
