Easter Gift Tags

Friday, April 18, 2014

Here's a quick and easy Easter tag I threw together using some colorful scraps:
-Card stock printed with 'Happy Easter', then cut to crate tag shape
-Bunny cut using Animal Kingdom Cricut cartridge
-Chevron washi tape border
-PomPom tail

This year I decided to go with Easter 'Bags' instead of Easter Baskets since they travel better!

'Two Carat' Easter Earrings

Monday, April 14, 2014

These 'Two Carat' earrings are a fun, unique, inexpensive, and non-candy addition to any Easter basket! They are quick and easy to make as well.

Cut two carrots out of orange card stock.  I didn't use a pattern so each one was unique, just like in nature.

Score each carrot to add horizontal lines, like you would find on an actual carrot.

Create the card for the earrings by printing the words 'Two Carats' on card stock. Position and cut according to the size card you like.

Use two pieces of green ribbon to create each carrot stem.  Glue them to the card stock before adding the carrot.

After the carrot is secured to the card stock, punch a hole in the center of each carrot to push the earring through. I used the small punch I use for brads.

I found this 3-pack of 'diamond' earrings at Target for only $4.99!  It worked out great since I was making three sets.

 Place the earrings onto the card you just made and that's it!
