Tag! You're It!

Sometimes when you're giving a present (especially if the economy has taken a bite out of your gift-giving budget!) you can made a great impression just by adding some pizzaz to your wrapping.  So I was thrilled when I saw the tag challenge for this month's Guest DT spot at My Favorite Things.  First, I have to let you in on a secret.  I've wanted this set FOREVER because of the adorable little Bunny Bottom sticking out of the cup.  OK, so I would *scream* if there actually WAS a bunny in my cup - but isn't it just the cutest thing ever?????  OK, done with the rabbit trail (grin!).  Back to the tag...

I didn't exactly have a template for the tag.  I found the width that I wanted for the tea bag to fit inside and then I cut the top with the Nesties Label 5 die to make it pretty.  I cut the top of my DP with the die, too, and then trimmed it down to the embossed line, so it would be a tiny bit smaller than the backing.  I added some stitching and sponging, and then attached it to the backing.  I colored my adorable Tea for Two stamp with copics and cut it out.  It's attached over the ribbon with pop-dots.  When that was done, I used Scor-Tape to tape the sides of my tag together and to attach my sentiment (which I cut out with the Die-Namics File Tab - LOVE!) to the side.  I tied my ribbons together with some silver cord threaded with jingle bells and attached a tag hanger to the top with a staple.

Here's a close-up.  Tell me - how can you not love a face like that!!
