Bunny Tags

I just love a fun tag, don't y'all?? I haven't considered myself a tag maker, but recently have been having fun trying. Jen hosts a tag swap and while I didn't join her previous ones{I didn't think I would have any ideas or that they wouldn't be good}, but knew after I saw some of hers, that I had to join this time around.
I made these to look like chocolate bunny heads. I just layed my tag on scrapbook paper and traced it around and cut it out. I used a hole punch to add a hole, then mod podged it to the tag. While it was drying, I cut out the bunny heads out of brown felt and cut the flowers{they came on a ribbon spool from the dollar section at Michael's.} Once the tags were dry, I used Allene's craft glue to glue on the bunny heads, then the flowers. I let those set up then I got my April stamp{it is in a set of the clear acrylic date stamps from Target} and stamped it on, then took my ink pad and glided it along the edges of the tag to age it a bit. I love lots of yummy ribbon, so I cut five pieces of the dotted swiss ribbon and five of the chocolate satin, and white ricrac. You will want to make the ribbon you loop thru a little longer than the other ones. Once, I thread the base ribbon thru and tied it one time, then I put the other two ribbons on and tied the pink ribbon again, knotting them all together. There you go, a cute tag that you can either clip to a wire display{see Jen's here} or use to embellish a gift. I have even seen someone hang them on an Easter tree.

Yes, that is what I will put on my pink tree, since it doesn't look like I will get around to salt dough ornies... Thanks for the idea! BTW I can't wait to get your choco bunny head tag!
