Easter Dressing

By Nancymccarroll
Aww, my girls way back when in Billings, Montana:
Easter Dressing
You know it was a long time ago if black and white film was still in vogue.
Easter Dressing
Martha Stewart tells you how to make these carrots filled with trinkets.
Instructions are here:
Love your vegetables! Made of wrapped paper streamers, these adorable little bundles are a twist on the crepe-paper surprise ball. As you unwind the paper, you find the trinkets -- jewelry, a novelty, a toy. It's simple to grow a basketful and customize them for guests of any age. Display them as a centerpiece or leave them by the door as favors.
Tools and Materials
•Leaf template
•Crepe streamers, in Apricot, Golden Yellow, and Orange,
•Green crepe paper, in Leaf Green,
•Hot-glue gun
•Assorted small gifts
Crepe Paper Carrots How-To
1. Loosely wrap orange streamer to form carrot shape, making it thicker at top. Tuck in gifts as you work. Press end of paper down into top.
2. Fold green crepe paper in half across its grain. Download leaf template, and trace onto folded paper. Cut out; bunch up. Tuck leaves into carrot top; secure with dab of hot glue.
