Easter Gift Ensemble

Today (on the Cropstop blog) I’m sharing an Easter gift ensemble I created with a punched paper bag and a pretty spring tag.

To create my tag I started with a 5.75 x 3.75 piece of  kraft cardstock. I cut a coral piece of paper slightly smaller and stamped the plaid background stamp (Impressions Obesession) in abandoned coral distress ink.  I ran my open scissors along the sides of the coral piece to distress the edges. Down the center of my tag I layered a strip aqua paper embossed with the circular grid border embossing folder from Anna Griffin.  Using a round paper punch I punched a small craft circle and glued it near the top before punching a hole using my Crop-a-dile.
 Through the punched tag hole, I tied a twine bow using pink and blue burlap string.  Next I cut two nesting layers of designer paper using my Spellbinders Labels 4 dies. The floral collage is made using the Tiny Tattered Florals dies from Tim Holtz, the branch and frond punch from Martha Stewart, and a Posie Patch flower (Heartfelt Creations) stamped in broken china distress ink and decorated with a wooden button. The die cut “happy” sentiment comes from Momento, and I used alphabet punches to cut out “Easter.”
 To finish off my tag I added a few pretty pearls and then layered the completed card on white cardstock.  Topping off this gift set is a decorated mini clothespin, and brown paper bag punched with the Embroidery Deep Edge Punch from Martha Stewart.
 I’d love to see what you’ve created for Easter this year, so stop by the CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up your projects that use Cropstop products! Hope to see you there!
