I recently took a girls' trip to Savannah with three of my friends from high school. Although we no longer live near each other, we have remained great friends. Even after months and sometimes years without talking, we always seem to be able to pick up right where we left off. We talked easily and laughed until our stomachs hurt. It took quite a while until we could manage to coordinate all of schedules and get away at a time that worked for everyone. It just so happened to be Easter weekend. I wanted to bring them an Easter basket full of some of my favorite things and some sweet treats for them and their pets!
Of course I had to dress up the tags for their gift bags. I started by die cutting the tags with the new Love Showers Layers stitched tag die. I then stamped flowers from Embroidered Bouquet in Fairy Dust accented with flowers and leaves stamped in Wild Mango, Little Piggy, and Mojito. Once that was done I stamped my sentiments in black ink. To add a little interest and texture, I used the circle die from the Love Mom Layers die set to emboss rather than cut. This highlights the sentiment while still keeping the design simple.
I thought you might like to see what I included in their Easter bags. Along with those pictures above I included a Cadbury Crème Egg and some homemade dog treats. I shared the recipe for these on Instagram.

Everything was packaged in a kraft bag and the tags were tied on with some cotton rope. They loved the tags and the goodies inside!
