So "Hoppy" for You - my March 2013 tag based on Tim Holtz tags of 2013

It's almost spring and my tag is So "Hoppy" for You! This is my March 2013 tag based on the Tim Holtz March 2013 tag tutorial.

Love the tutorials. I love spring and I love bunnies so I combined the two and created lots of bunnies on springs!

First I cut the shape out of chip board, and then cut out the bunny with the vagabond machine. I wanted it to be stiff enough to be able to put fur behind it and have it pop out. Then I stamped the shape with a Tim Holtz stamp pattern and embossed it with orange embossing powder and used ranger distress inks around the edges.

Then I created the tag base just like the Tim Holtz tag in his tutorial.

I wanted to make some hopping bunnies for my tag, so I used a martha stewart bunny punch and punched out some burlap looking paper and inked them different colors. Then I made springs out of wire wrapped around a pen and glued the bunnies on. I used stickles around the edges of the bunnies.


Then I assembled the tag. Here's a huge photo of the bunnies hopping around the green grass on the bottom of the tag.

Happy Easter!!!

P.S. No bunnies were harmed in the making of this tag. I used synthetic fur. 


  1. I love, love, love your furry and hoppity take on Tim's inspirational tag. Your color scheme is magnificent. Blessings!

  2. You are so creative and talented!! I love everything you do. I always love the touch of "whimsy" that makes me smile. Keep creating & sharing!
