Santa Tags

Today I have a super cute Christmas tag to share with you. They are Santa heads and the beard opens up for you to write your little message!


Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Blush Blossom (retired)
Ink: Black Stampin' Write Marker
Tools: Punches: Scallop Border, 2" Circle (non SU!), 1-3/4" Circle, 3/4" Circle
Accessories: Dazzling Details, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine
How cute are these?! This is pretty much a total CASE from ones I found on Pinterest. The link led me to an Etsy page and the creator was Deanna Fioresi. The small changes I made to hers are adding the Baker's Twine for it to be a hanging tag, a larger scallop for the beard and the sparkles on the hat (that are really hard to see in the pictures).

To start off, I punched the following: 1 - 2" scallop circle (using a non SU! punch) in Whisper White, 1 - 1-3/4" circle in Blush Blossom, 1 - 3/4" circle in Whisper White. I punched a long strip using the Scallop Border Punch and just cut it as needed. The hat is a 1-3/4" x 3" rectangle, cut at a diagonal.

Next, I assembled the pieces together. I opted to trim the beard around the head because I thought it looked cleaner. I added some eyes and to add some sparkle, I used Dazzling Details on the pom pom and scallop parts of the hat. I squirted a small amount and moved it around with my finger to get the desired look.

Since I wanted these to be hanging tags, I added some Baker's Twine and the tag was complete! I will be selling these in sets of 4 at an upcoming Craft Show I'm doing in November. If you're interested in purchasing some, let me know!

Until next time, stay crafty!
