Cooking Hedgehogs Xmas Tags

After making the last set of tags for my homemade food gifts, I realized that they were too big for the goodie bags and boxes so I decided to make some smaller ones using a sweet Penny Black hedgehog stamp.  After stamping the image on watercolor paper, I die cut it with a Sizzix circle die (from a set of 8 ).
Using one circle die size bigger, I cut out a piece of Doodlebug Designs candy cane paper from the Milk and Cookies line and glued it to the colored (with Copic pens) image circle.  I shaped a 12" candy cane pipe cleaner into a circle to fit the rim between the two circles. The top ends of the pipe cleaner just barely will form a loop. The pipe cleaner hoop was glued down with Beacon 1-2-3 glue and a Jolee holly sticker was added.
Oh yes, I stamped the candy cane side of the circle with 'Christmas goodies' (Studio G) and 'eat, drink and be merry' (Hero Arts set).  To finish off the back, I glued some furry white yarn to the edge of the circle. I like these tags better than the first set  I made and I know they won't dwarf the goodie bags/boxes. LOL! Keep on still have time!

Ohhhh, these tags are just too cute. You are so clever to add pipe cleaner around the edges. Great idea to use it as an embellishment. Merry Christmas!
