Easter Tag {TCP Challenge 197 - Technique/Supply Challenge}

Today's project is for this week's TCP Tuesday challenge. Julie is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to create {A}nything {B)ut a {C}ard.

I decided to create an oversized tag which will accompany my granddaughter's to-be-purchased Easter gift this year. I made the tag using the decorative edge on the Gift Card Envie CutUps on the bottom and the notched sections at the top. The paper is some Little Yellow Bicycle from a couple of years back. I love that it looks so fresh and springlike. The centerpiece of the tag is the nest created with The Cat's Pajamas Rolled Nest CutUps and some felt. I rolled up very loosely so I could add some plastic eggs. I tried my best to find some pre-glittered miniature eggs at the big box craft store but they were all a little too big. I did find a small bag of plain speckled eggs in the right size so I covered them in glue and dipped them in various colors of glitter so they would look more like Easter. I think I got more glitter on me than on the eggs. I added some felt leaves cut with the dies included in the Nest CutUp set and a Webster's Pages butterfly stickpin.  I added some felt flowers using the Flower Button CutUps and rose seam binding ribbon. The ribbon at the top came from my stash - I thought the brown balanced out the brown nest. 

By the way, the basket you see in one of the photos was my son's when he was a little boy. We put it out every year for the Easter bunny to fill. Now my granddaughter uses it when she hunts for eggs at our house.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas CutUps, Seam Binding, Little Yellow Bicycle dp, PTI felt and button, Martha Stewart punch

All the details for this TCP Tuesday challenge can be found on Alma’s blog. As always, there is potential for fame (Pick of the Litter) and/or fortune (Pick of the Week) and possibly even Swanky Stamper of the Month.
