Making those cute carrot boxes using your largest heart Nestie die!

Pin It
Hi all, We all like to save a few dollars where we can so today I wanted to show you how to make those cute carrot gift boxes using the largest heart Nestibilities die instead of the expensive petal cone die. I will say though this makes a smaller box and pouch but hey it's a great alternative especially when all the kids are really interested in is whats inside! You could use the pouch to hold some money for the older kids in your life ;) and smaller is sometimes better when it come to sweets! all the details will be below and I hope you will enjoy!
you can purchase the written instruction for the small price of $3.95

and a last thought

“I will answer them before they even call to Me...”
(Isaiah 65:24)
I love this text and had it proven to me just lately.... as the last 2 and 1/2 years of battling panic attacks I have not driven myself more than a 15 minuet drive from home or been to a dentist appointment by myself ever! (I still don't like the dentist) When i was faced with doing both these things last week i started to melt down wondering how I could do this....God answered before i even called and gave me a such peace that everything would be OK and the day was great! Such an achievement that most people would take for granted but I know God gave me the strength to reclaim back these simple things I need to do. Remember, you are very special to God, and He hears you and answers you. Reclaim parts of your life and know that He always has your best interest at heart. He is working things out for your good, and He will always answer — sometimes before you even call!
Blessings to you

You have a God given imagination and ability to teach. I am always inspired after spending time on your blog, it is never wasted. I also love, love how you are down to earth, practical. You give us great alternatives to the pricey stuff. I don't have a heart nesty, but I do have lots of heart templates collected from many sources and years of crafting. Can't wait to get work and responsibilities completed so I can play. Love the verses and sharing. You are a real person, a sister in the Lord. Blessings as you live a life pleasing in His sight.

This is so cute... I don't have the Petal Cone die but I do have this one. I'm gonna give it a try for grandson.... thank you for sharing this....

Lisa B said...

Cute project. The Petal Cone die is more expensive, but there are lots of other fun things to do with it, so it's really not expensive for what you get :)

Cindy said...

Love your carrots but I love what you said more. Praise God!!!

valita said...

Marilyn M said...

Thank you so much for the tutorial. I love your alternatives and less expensive ideas to create beautiful things. You are very talented and God will bless you for sharing your talent.

Oh Valita, I simply adore you! I believe I was divinely guided to find your blog. I look forward to reading everything you have to say, and learning from your tutorials! You are so darned creative it is unreal! Thank you for sharing your God-given talent, and for sharing personal details about yourself as well.
Panic attacks can be quite debilitating and unfortunately, for some, you become a prisoner in your own home for fear of having an attack in public. I feel for you honey! I don't believe that God would want you to become a prisoner to this...so spread your wings a little at a time, and you will get through this eventually.
I sure wish we lived closer together. I would love to be your next door neighbour and visit you regularly to play with paper in the craft room! Bless you Valita!
By the way, the paper folds dress card turned out fabulous. My 11-year old was aprehensive after viewing the tutorial, but she did a great job, and wants to do one for every one of the girls in her classroom. I think we are now both hooked on a new form of paper crafting!

Carol said...

This is such a great idea and while I was watching your wonderful video, I was digging for my heart set! I'm going to make some this weekend...thank you for sharing this smart and clever idea - and yes, the Nesties are much cheaper than the die....THANK YOU!!!!

fita said...

Valita,
Thanks for the tutorial and alternative to the petal cone die.
Praise God that you trusted in him and he was there for you. Remember God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love & a sound mind.
I will pray that you continue to trust him and he deliver you from anything that hinders you.
Love & Blessings,
Fita

Hello Valita!

I love these little carrot treats! Often I have wished to make these but didn't have the punch! You are so creative - thank you for this wonderful tutorial! You're the best!

Also, from one who has known panic attacks, I am so glad to read that you have conquered not only one, but two issues! Congratulations!

Wishing you a happy weekend!

Hugs,

Thanks so much for sharing this awesome alternative to the SU petal die. I have been wanting to do some of these carrot packages and just couldn't justify the expense of the die. I just happen to have the nestie hearts, so I'm ready to make these-- yeah!
Also appreciate you sharing the Bible passage.

Hi Valita! I have been visiting your blog for a year now and I am totally amazed by your awesome talent. You truly are inspirational. I have the Nestabilities heart dies and did not know what else to do with them. Your tutorial was like an epiphany, I tried it making them as soon as I saw it. I have since made a few carrots and given them to my 7 year old daughters school mates. They were a hit! Thanks so much. Glod bless you and your family xxxx
