I've seen these paper carrots all over the blogosphere lately and I love them! I knew they would look so cute in the boys cansekts so I decided that I need to make a couple for my boys. But what to put in them!?! I didn't want to go the candy route because let's face it there will be plenty of candy. I didn't think I t-shirt would really fit or even a pair of socks....oooh but money would fit! A little bunny money, now that would be fun! I think I've started a new tradition. If your kiddos are anything like mine they love having their own money to spend on all of those little things that mom and dad say no to. I can't wait for the boys to see these!
Oh and if you're wondering what a cansket is....this was one of my first crafty projects after Asher was born. I wanted something fun and a little different for the boys for Easter baskets. I saw a lot of craftiness with paint cans and so I thought cansket! It's been about 4 years and you can see the paper has started to bubble. The colors really don't say Asher 9or even me anymore) to me anyways. Funny how much style changes in 4 short years! I think I'll peal these off and go vinyl, but not this year. This year we'll use these because Easter is Sunday and I know that I really don't have time for another project.
