Carrot Garland


Cut a 1.5 inch strip of orange cardstock and punch down both sides with scalloped border punch.  Trim three strips of .75 inch green cardstock in lengths varying from 5 to 5.5 inches long. Fold all strips in half.  Sandwich and staple as shown below.  Pull the ends of the orange strips around and staple to secure in a carrot shape.  String carrots together using a 1/16 inch hole punch.

You can also make the carrots with a straight edge rather than the scalloped.

Hot Artichoke Dip

1 c. mayonnaise

8 oz. pkg. Cream cheese (melted)

½ c. Parmesan cheese

1 sm. can diced green chilies

8 oz. Artichoke hearts packed in water cut them up small and mix together.

HEAT oven to 350°F.

BLEND mayonnaise and cream cheese.  Add in Parmesan cheese, chilies, and artichokes.

SPOON into shallow ovenproof dish or 9-inch pie plate.

BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until hot and bubbly.  Serve with broken up French bread or crackers.

Carrot Treat Containers

Supplies: Double Dot Cardstock in Citrus Dot and Avocado Dot, Double Dot Ribbon 3/8” in Kiwi; stickers and such.

Carrots can be made to any size.  For the large carrots, cut paper to 5”w x 6”h and for the smaller carrot, cut to 4”w x 5”h.  Crimp the Double Dot Avocado Cardstock and cut a fringe to create the green carrot tops.  If you want to hang the carrot containers, punch a hole near the bottom of the green carrot top and insert the fold of the ribbon to create a loop in the back, then tie a bow in the front.
