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 crafting...you still have time!
