Easy Christmas Tag from Scraps

No cricut needed- easy for my non crafty friends and family, or your kids to make! Great way to use scraps or left overs, and who does not need or love to get a great tag this time of year! Easy to co-ordinate with your wrapping paper to! If you have a cricut you could certainly use it.

Pull your chair up and grab whatever close to your pencil colors, old eye shadows & blushes, chalks, markers, recycled or left over buttons, fabric or paper scraps, embellishments, glitters, embossing powders, bling or whatever you have to use and you can whip these out in no time or get involved.

You will need one piece of 3" x 5" for your base and one piece 1"x 3" for the hat brim, and you can use white if you are covering with scraps. If you want a colored hat and don't have enough glitter etc cut from fabric or paper one 3 x 3 piece.
First I placed but did not glue the bling for his smile and eyes then used a Close to My Heart orange paintbrush tip marker to draw and color his nose. Then I used a pink CTMH marker to color cheeks before adhering the mouth. Then glue eyes and smile. You can leave your edges squared or use a corner rounder.

Decide what you are using on your hat, secure the brim and decorate as you like. The sky is the limit! Punch a hole to add ribbon, can stamp (write, sticker etc) "to & from" on the front or back.
