Easter Egg Tags

After cutting the eggs for the card in the previous post, I just couldn't stop cranking out eggs.  I decided that the largest size egg die would make terrific tags with just the addition of a ribbon through a punched hole.
I had an extra chocolate rabbit (read last post for how-to instructions) and eggs for the tag and combined it with a funny sentiment stamp I purchased from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.

For the vintage Peter Rabbit-like tag, I used a Rubber Baby Buggy Bumper stamp.  The image was stamped with brown waterproof ink on newsprint-like paper and colored with watercolor pencils.
The egg edge was distressed with TH tea dye ink.
I enjoyed making these egg tags because they were quick and easy.  Although the tags both used the same paper for the base, they have a totally different look because of the images and ribbons. I know that I'll be making more egg tags in the future using some of my other Easter images.  Hope you are having as much crafting fun as I am......I love the cuteness of Easter!
