Remember how Valentine's Day snuck up on me? Easter did the same thing! Nearing the holiday I stumbled upon these darling carrot cellophane bags at Walmart. They are SO CUTE!! I love the green leaves at the top. You might be able to find them at the craft store when the holiday is approaching...or...I found them online for you (click here for the link). Just fill them with some Easter treats and tie with a bit of ribbon. I used curly ribbon and then curled it to add to the leaf effect. Think my missionary will catch on? I think not. Add a bit of coordinating tissue paper and some shredded paper if needed for filler and you're good to go. Again, I was able to fit two into a small Flat Rate box from the Post Office. Again, about $5 to send. Yay!!
Now when someone asks what you sent your missionary for Easter you can say, "Carrots!"
