Hi friends! I’m popping in today to share a quick and adorable tag I made for one of the Easter baskets I’ll be filling this weekend. I don’t normally do this but I had so much fun making tags for my daughter during her dance season that I find myself making excuses to add them to everything now.
I chose a couple of images from the Easter Bunnies stamp set and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside.
Next, I cut the tag shape from the Spring Circles die set 2 1/2 times from white cardstock. For the 1/2 portion, I just cut the bottom so I could create grass after I inked it up. I chose distress oxide inks in peacock feathers and cracked pistachio for the full tag which is my sky and mowed lawn and twisted citron for the 1/2 piece that I cut with a grass border die later on. Then, I spritzed the inked panels with water and let them dry. The third tag is left white and becomes a nice clean backer for my tag that also adds stability so it doesn’t feel flimsy.
I adhered the layers together with liquid glue and also added the carrot to the bunny’s paws. Then I used the images as a guide while I placed and stamped my sentiment. Once that was done I added my images to the tag with foam squares.
I punched a hole in the top and threaded some twine through it, then added a foam square to the bow and placed it over the hole to hide it. I kept finishing touches to a minimum by just adding black glaze pen to the bunny’s eyes and nose and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the bow at the top.
