Sweet images and pastel colors. Warmer days and pretty flowers. All the things that make Spring a favorite season. I've had so much fun gathering my paper crafting supplies for this tag swap. Making a bigger tag than my usual, this one is 4x6.5 inches and is full of new techniques. At least for me.
October Afternoon is my favorite paper vendor. They always seem to grasp that vintage flavor. These beautiful bunnies came from Diane of Saturday Finds. They are from a vintage Easter card and I am so impressed at how crisp her images are...they won't be my last.
From the first pieces to the finished product.
The bunnies unfold to show off sentiments, the date and a few Easter clippings from a vintage child's workbook. Through trial and error I figured out how to hinge the bunnies, overlap them, and hide the content...yep...it took me all day!
Trimmings....I formed this bunny silhouette out of an old pipe cleaner. The blue plastic flower is a recent find. Leaves off of discarded millinery, blue bird ornament and ribbons galore.
A quick labeled back and a stamp for good measure wrap up this fun tag. I am adding in some chocolate and a nut cup basket.
This is my first attempt at a nut cup. There were many redo's and I can't say that my final is perfect but it is my favorite of the ones that I made. Shipping this sweet package out this week to a hand picked partner by Miss Sandy of 521 Lake Street.
Happy Easter Terry!
These bunnies are heading your way...
