Rolly Pollies Gift Tags

I had mentioned on my Facebook page recently that the Rolly Pollies Peep Game file can be used for more than a "Don't Eat Pete" game board. The cute graphics can be extracted (by using the "Crop" trick) and used for print-and-cut projects. For example, they can be used for making some super adorable gift tags.

This is how I did it:

Before extracting the images, I removed the "DON'T EAT PEEP" header by using Trace and Detach. Next, I drew a rectangle around each of the images. With both the rectangles and the graphic selected, I applied the Object>Modify>Crop command, leaving only the cute images behind and without the grid.

I can now use the extracted images to make the gift tags.

First, I overlaid each image over a tag, and resize both to the same width. To get a seamless look, I filled the tag with the same background color as the extracted image. I also added a "To/From" space as well as a greeting. Once all the tags are prepared, I used my Silhouette Cameo to print-and-cut them out! Easy peasy!

Here are my finished gift tags:
