With Easter just around the corner, I got busy in the craft room this week making some sweet shabby tags.
Bunnies and roses are perfect right throughout Spring, so these little sweeties could stay out all season.
I put them together on a free A4 printable sheet that you can download here and save to your own computer.
Of course, there are so many options for creating with these bunnies, so I’m just showing you one that I made.
I’d love to hear what you make with them.
How to make Shabby Bunny Tags
Vinatage book paper
silk ribbon or seam binding
Glue, scissors and hole punch.
1. Tear two pages from an old book. Fold the page in an accordion, with each fold about 1 cm high. Fold the accordion in half.
2. Open out the 2 pages. I joined them in the centre using a long bead of glue, to make an extra long page. Where the two pages joined, I made a hole (for ribbon) using a hole punch.
3. Fold accordion back into its fan shape and apply glue to the ends where they meet. You should now have a complete circle. Thread ribbon through the hole to make a hanger.
4. I used a small paper doily, but you could use a real doily, fabric or scrapbooking paper to make a background piece for your bunny. Adhere to book paper fan. Cut the bunny or rose design out using sharp pointy nosed scissors. Adhere to doily with a small amount of glue. I also added a ribbon bow to the base of the bunny head and also on the rose design.
I was so pleased with how my shabby bunny tag came together, I’ve decided to make 4 bunny tags and one rose tag to use as a garland.
Won’t that be pretty to hang on my dresser!
