Happy Easter to everyone out there in blog land. Today I made a little tag for an easter goodie bag! I primarily followed the April Spots from this months challenge over at the Stamp Spot - their spots for April are oval, brown and stitching ... now I can't sew so I cheated and did a little 'faux stitching' on my basket handle so I hope that is okay! I am also entering it for the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesdays - easter and Creative Card Crew - spring.
and here is the tag on the little goodie bag ...
I created a little basket tag and have used the large oval tag from Sizzix oval tag dies and used the medium tag as a template to cut away the inside to create a basket handle. Then I wove some strips of brown cardstock and attached it to the base and trimmed off the excess to the shape of the tag. Popped 3 little eggs in the viola!
I loved making this little tag - it is so easy to make. Now I do have a little TIP for Top Tip Tuesdays challenge blog - to create little eyes use small pearls and mark the pupils with a permanent black marker and seal with a dollop of glossy accents so that the black pupil doesn't rub off as it is handled.
materials - AC chestnut and coffee cardstock, Core 'dinations wheat cardstock; Jillibean apple cheddar papers; Jillibean Soup 'eggcellent' stamps; StazOn timber brown ink; Signo white gel pen; Ranger baby blue liquid pearls; Aleenes shrink plastic; 7mm split ring; green 1/8" eyelet; 10mm light blue gingham; mullberry flowers.
