Snowman Gift Tags
by Janet Katz
It's about time for me to start wrapping presents. Pretty, fun gift tags can give a lot of oomph to otherwise plain packages or simple gift bags. I made these three tags with several different Poppystamps dies. All three have the sweet figure from the Whittle Friendly Snowman die. I cut scarves and hat bands from red, aqua glitter, and a pool-colored cardstock to give them all a different look.
After that I branched out (pardon the pun). The snowman on the left got a dotted aqua paper as a hill. Then she got two trees from the Evergreen Trio die set. Finally, I added clear Fairy Drops (I can't get enough of these things) to appear like snow (or maybe sleet).
The red-scarved snowman got a black and red check hill to rest on. Then he got the sweet holly leaves and berries from the Cabin Snowglobe Pop Up Easel die. The last snowman got same glitter as a hill, and the evergreen boughs from the Birdhouse Pop Up Easel die. I colored the boughs with a white gel pen to make it look like snowfall. I added some fairy jewels as snowflakes when I was finished. A little string on the top and these sweet guys and girls are ready to go under the tree.
Do you make your own gift tags or decorate your packages?
