  • Stamp the chick image with black ink onto white cardstock.

Easter Tags with Xyron and Photoplay Paper

Even when the kids are all grown up you’re never too old to have fun.

This year I’m trying something new.

After the Easter Egg Hunt with the little ones,

I plan on having another Easter Egg Hunt for the Big Kids and Grown Ups.

(We’re all just big kids at heart.)

For the Easter Egg Hunt…

I decided to whip up a few quick tags to go along with some of the prizes using my

Xyron Creative Station* and Xyron Mega Runner*, a few sheets of paper from

Photoplay Paper’s Easter Blessings Collection along with a few simple embellishments.

When I want to make quick work of any project, I grab my Xyron Creative Station*.

Did you know that you can interchange the Xyron 9” Creative Station Permanent Adhesive

Refill* with the Xyron 5” Creative Station Permanent Adhesive Refill*?

Being able to use both sizes of cartridges with the Xyron Creative Station* is super convenient

when working on both big and medium sized projects.

Just lay your paper design side up onto the  Xyron Creative Station* crank the handle to run

the paper through the machine.  As it moves through the Xyron Creative Station* it adds

adhesive to the back side of the paper.  Easy to use and it doesn’t need electricity.

To make the tag…

I layered and trimmed the 3″ x 4″ element cards from the scrapbook paper and embellished it

with a thin strip of paper and prima flower*Tie tag with a simple sheer ribbon onto the bag.

I added a few enamel dots from Waffleflower on the tag and a little “small talk” sticker from

Tim Holtz idea-ology.

With a little more candy for the plastic eggs and I’ll be ready for fun.
