Egg-ceptional Easter Gifts

I made these little Easter Egg Bag Toppers last year for the ladies at work - they were all very happy with them so I thought I'd share them with you for this year.

You will need:
Chocolate Chip, Whisper White & So Saffron Cardstock (pg. 128)
Small Cellophane Bags (pg.130)
Tag Punch and Small Tag Punch (pg.152)
Greetings Eight Stamp Set (pg. 57)
Basic Black Ink (pg. 127)Stampin' Pastels (pg. 127)
Blender Pens (pg. 156)
Always Artichoke 1/4" Grossrain Ribbon (pg. 151)  

Fold a square of chocolate chip cardstock in half and attach to the top of the bag of eggs.
Wrap Always Artichoke Ribbon around the card, securing it at the front.
Stamp the Bunny image onto Whisper White cardstock and layer it onto So Saffron Cardstock - use the Tag punches to punch them out adn layer them together.
Attach to the bag topper covering the join of the ribbon. Colour the image using a Blender Pen with Pastels.
Add a button to embellish and stamp a greeting using White Stazon if desired.
