    Doggone it, seeing your adorable little carrot boxes makes me wish i had one of those super machines. But I don’t so will have to figure out another way to make something similar, maybe a carrot shaped cone with some faux grass on top. Why not? You’ve inspired me anyway. I’ve been looking for something different to make with bunnies for a garland/banner. Been making different Easter/Spring banners with what I had in craft room. Love it, so much fun making things for people for new season. Happy spring days

      You can totally adapt anything to make a carrot, Jane Ellen! Glad you were inspired even though you don’t have an Explore!
