Snowman Tags

Did you enjoy all the sneak peeks from Shady Tree's release? I have one last project to share for this week. It uses my favorite image from the Just Believe set, the snowman.

I made a set of Christmas tags and packaged them in a window tin. The base of the tags is a white shipping tag I got at Joann's some time ago. I used some new Echo Park holiday paper, stamping once onto the paper and again onto white so I could paper piece the white body. Snowmen are easy to color, it just took a few colors of markers and some black glaze pen over the coal eyes and buttons. All the edges were sponged before I added strips of blue velvet ribbon.

Here is a close up of the tag...
I suppose these could even be added to a card but I plan to use them on my gifts this Christmas.

That's it for me. Thanks for visiting!

Such a cute tag, Tracy! I love the "folksy" look of the snowman!

very cute tags, Tracy! You have given me an idea! I used to make lots of tags at Christmas time but haven't done them the past few years. This year I wanted to make some again and the tin that I keep them in is pretty small. I might need to decorate a larger tin. ;) That would serve as a motivation to get my tags done, right?

Tags seem to be the "in" thing right now! I love yours! What a great gift to give to someone. I'll have to remember this when I do my Secret Angel exchange this year! Lovely gift set, Tracy!
