  2. Cut out templates and assemble boxes using double-sided tape. (Tip: For more precise creases, use a bone folder.)
  3. Use a pencil to make a leafy carrot top design on green cardstock and cut out. Trace the shape onto the green cardstock over and over to make leafy tops for all your carrot boxes.

  4. Personalize each box by spelling out the name of guests onto the green leafy tops with gold alphabet stickers.
  5. Fold back the bottom of the leafy top to create a tab. Hot glue the tab to the carrot box.
