Take a PEEP!

Well, I don't normally show all the fun stuff I make to give away for holidays, but this project was SO EASY AND SO FUN (and cheap affordable) that I just had to share!  Because if you want to, you can TOTALLY knock one of these out before Sunday!  This time I did have some help--my sister is here visiting and so she came over to make these with me.  It really cuts down on the amount of time if you have a helper!  Okay, so come take a peek--or should I say PEEP?!!!

Here's the WHOLE project~

A closer look at the different colors~

And a close up of the tag~

For these fabulous challenges~

For the tags, I've used stamps by Paper Sweeties (sentiment) and Inspired By Stamping (egg), black ink by Memento, twine from my stash, and all other supplies were from Stampin' Up!  Each egg color corresponds to the color of Peep on the stick. :)

To make these, you just gotta get some Peeps ($1.10 per package--the rabbit shaped ones work best...but our store only had green chicks), some lollipop sticks (I used Wilton 6" sticks, $1.98 for a package of 35), some plastic baggies (just the fold over kind--you can grab a package of these for about $1-$2), some twine (I used some I got for $3 a roll via a discount site and barely used any), and then whatever you want to make your tags!  Put a Peep on a stick, wrap with a baggie (we cut ours down a bit), tie with twine and the tag.  That's it!  I think this whole project cost me about $8 and it only took us about 2 hours to make about 60 of them.  Not even kidding!  And there will be some happy little kids, I think! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my project!
