I added cute “Happy Easter” tags tied with colored baker’s twine to my Treat-Size Crochet Easter Baskets. The stamps and tag die are from Taylored Expressions. There is a set of 3 Tag Team dies so you can cut 3 tags at a time. The Tag Team Easter stamp set includes several sentiments and images including the adorable tiny bunny peep I used on my tags. 🐰

These sweet little baskets work up very quickly and you can make them up in any color – they are a great stash buster!

Happy Stitching!
