LNS Challenge (3-D Carrot Treat Holder)

This week's Late Night Stampers Challenge is to make a 3-D object.  My submission is a carrot treat holder made with the Petal Cone Die.

Here it is empty:
 And here it is with some candy tucked into it:
While the idea of a challenge is to create a new item so that you "challenge" yourself to try something different, this project was actually made a little while ago.  I knew 3-D items would be an upcoming theme (a benefit of being a guest designer) so I went ahead and created it early so my club could make it in time for Easter.  Some of the stampers (me included) are planning to make these as table favors for Easter dinner.

To make, use the Big Shot to cut one Petal Cone in Tangerine Tango.  Run it through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I actually ran it through twice so that the polka dots were still sticking up when I folded down the round flap at the top, but this is not necessary if you don't mind the dots at the top being debossed (dipping in rather than poking up).  Assemble the Petal Cone die cut (fold over and use Sticky Strip to adhere flap to back).  Fold front semi-circle down and tack with adhesive.  Leave back semi-circle up.  Cut a Lucky Limeade scallop semi-circle from the Petal Cone die.  Run it through the Big Shot with the Vine Street Embossing Folder to make it look leafy like a carrot top.  Attach the scallop sem-circle to the Petal Cone carrot as shown.

Stamp the polka dot image from Four Frames onto Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out with the Decorative Label Punch.  Use the Happy Easter stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes to add the sentiment and then add three Basic Rhinestones under it.  Attach punched piece to carrot.  Add desired treat and you're done.

Supplies used:

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes, Four Frames
Big Shot:  Petal Cone Die, Vine Street Embossing Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Punch:  Decorative Label Punch
Embellishments:  Basic Rhinestones
Cardstock:  Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink:  Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team samples here.  Then, create your own 3-D item and link it to the challenge.

Edit 4/2/13:  I am excited to announce that my project was featured on Blog Finds of the Day by Kelly Mayou.  This is a wonderful resource for finding some great ideas.  You can check out her blog here:
