Hello friends! Carmen with you today sharing a quick and easy tutorial for an Easter basket tag. Easter is just around the corner and if you’re already putting together some baskets, you should consider adding a personal touch with a handmade tag.
Here’s a list of the supplies I used…
- #10 manila tag
- TCW2109 Monarch Fragment
- TCW2114 Repeat Tile Remnant
- Americana Acrylic paint: Soft Sage, Pansy Lavender, Wisteria, Desert Turquoise
- Fiesta Felt flowers
- Charcoal Pencil
- button, ribbon
I first layered a coat of Soft Sage acrylic paint on the entire tag to give it an Easter theme. Using the Repeat Tile Remnant from The Crafter’s Workshop I randomly applied the detail in Wisteria and Desert Turquoise.
The Monarch Fragment may be small, but it’s the perfect size for this tag and gives it a real Spring feel. I traced the outer edge of the fragment and then applied the Pansy Lavender for the details. I detailed it more with the charcoal pencil.
I wanted to add some more texture to the tag, so I found these felt stick on flowers in my stash. I layered the different sizes and then topped it off with a button using tacky glue.
This tag is perfect to write an Easter greeting on the back and attach it to a special basket.
Hope you enjoyed this project and make sure to come back often for more inspiration!
