Easter Food Labels

Most Holiday parties at my house always start with a fresh veggie plate with yummy dips and dressings.  So to help distinguish between the two classic white dressings that we'll be serving this Easter weekend, I've created food labels out of the most adorable Easter paper I found at my favorite local scrapbook store.  All you need is card stock paper with a fun print for the background and solid colors for the label, double sided tape flat and 3D, decorative ribbon, a hole punch and toothpicks.  Easy right?!  This little touch adds a big punch of color, festivity and love to your Easter table.

Cut out 3 1/2 x 2 in. shaped tag pieces with your printed paper (2 per tag, 1 for the front and 1 for the back).  Cut out 2 1/2 x 1 in. rectangle shaped label pieces from the solid color paper.  Punch out a hole near the point of one of the tags (the one you'll use for the front) and with a 4 in. long ribbon, double it in half and feed it through the hole.  Now that there is a loop from the ribbon on the back side, cut it to minimize any bulk from the ribbon.  Place double sided flat tape on all of the edges of the tag that will go on the back side of the front tag.  This way it will cover the exposed cut ribbon and the toothpick.  Place the tip of the toothpick onto some of the tape so that most of the toothpick is sticking out, so you can dip it into the food.  Then place the top tag onto of the bottom tag that is lined with tape and the toothpick.  Press together and ensure it sticks.  With a sharpie, write your food name on the label and with 3D double sided tape, place on the front of the tag to create some depth.  All done!
