Super easy Easter gift tags...

These little bunny gift tags took about 5 minutes to make. This photo shows the front and the back, and I think they turned out so cute.

The front of the tag is a bunny image cut at 3 inches from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  The back is a round "charm" cut from the same cartridge and sized to match the bunny head as closely as possible. I used the layers feature on my Gypsy, putting the bunny on one layer and the charm on the other layer so I could see them both at the same time, while sizing just the charm. I also used "hide contours" to remove all the cuts for the bunny face.

Once both pieces were cut out, I adhered the charm to the back side of the bunny (making sure the eyelet was between the ears) and then trimmed it to exactly match the size of the bunny face, which is not an exact circle. Once that was done I used my Peachy Keen Cute and Cuddly stamps, using the largest one to stamp the face with Memento Rich Cocal ink.  I also stamped the "to" and "from" on the back side of the tag.

I used a pastel pink Promarker to color in the nose and mouth, added a few pink "freckles" and also added some pink to the bunny ears.

I doubt there's ever been a real bunny with pink freckles, but I sure think they look so cute!

The finishing touch was a piece of spring green and white baker's twine.

I'm going to make a ton more of these for my Easter gifts. I may add a tiny flower or a little bow by one of the ears for those that will go on gifts for girls.

Give this quick and easy tag a try. You'll have fun, I guarantee it!

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day!
