My Favorite Peeps!

I saw this idea on Pintrest (I'm addicted to that site!).  It was so adorable that I had to make it instantly.  So as soon as I could I got some marshmallow peeps.  The idea behind this little Easter gift is a bag or box with some grass some eggs and a peep.  Attach a tag that says: "You're one of my favorite peeps" and viola a super cute easy craft!!!!!  I made up my tag in MDS, more on that later.  When I went to assemble my bag I realized I only had HUGE cello bags (don't worry, I have some smaller ones on the way!).  So it's a little larger than I would have normally made it.  But because of the big bags, I had to make big tags.  I think that when my smaller bags come I'll modify the tag and make it a little smaller. 

Even with the large tag this is still super cute and probably the cutest Easter treat I've made in a while.  So here's my little peep in the bag.  Make sure you decorate it up with the grass and candy eggs, otherwise the poor peep is in there all alone :( 
For the tags, I opened up My Digital Studio and just opened an 8.5x11 landscape scrapbook page.  This is typically how I make my tags.  You can fit a whole bunch on the sheet and then print them out.  I used my punches to make the base of the tag, added text and stamps over that.  Because I was going for a bigger tag for this one, I could fit 6 to a page, the tags are about 2.5x4.  When I get the smaller bags I'll modify the tag to make it smaller and hopefully get 8 to a page if not maybe 10.  This is such a fun and simple gift.  I hope you go make them too!!!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
