Our theme for this month’s hop is Easter. I searched through my stash of spring ribbons and selected this gorgeous Buttercup Double Faced Satin Ribbon. It’s the perfect match up for the Bunnies and Blooms paper collection I used to cover my tag.
Easter Treat Tag Tea Party in a Box
I’m a big fan of yellow, pink and green for spring. Here’s how I put this fun treat tag base together.
- First, locate 2 G45 Square Ivory Tags.
- Then, cut a 2″ x 3 3/4″ strip of yellow cardstock and score it at 1/2″ and 1 1/2″.
- Next, adhere the 1/2″ sides to the sides of two square tags. The 1″ piece in the center will serve as the spine for the little folder.
- Now use the G45 Square Tags Die to cut 4 liners for the tags. The inside liners will cover up the 1/2″ flaps that you used to join the two tags together.
- Attach a ribbon closure with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.
- Tie sweet little pink and white Baker’s Twine bows to dress up the carrot banner on the cover.
Dress Up the Spine
Thread another length of Buttercup Satin Ribbon through a hole that you punch in the 1″ spine. Tie a bow with more Baker’s Twine. Slip a pink vintage pin through the twine and attach some cute dangle charms.
A Peek Inside
Here’s a look at the inside of this cute little treat tag. There’s a flap page on the left and a box pocket on the right.
To create the flap page, simply trim the 3×4 image to 3″ x 3 3/4″. Score a 1/2″ flap on the left hand side of the bunny image. Then wrap the flap around the tag liner before you glue it down. You can add an Easter greeting on the back of the image. Die cut a circle from ivory cardstock and adhere it over the tag liner. This gives you a great spot to write a personal greeting.
Fill the box pocket up with an herbal tea packet, cookies, chocolate, jelly beans and a sweet little demitasse spoon. Photos or a note pad can be stored in the box pocket once the treats have been enjoyed.
