I love Christmas because it’s the perfect excuse to get crafty!  I’ve already shown you how to make your own gift wrap, now to accessorise!  And what better way than with these Santa head gift tags.  They’re so cute and full of character.  I used a cuttlebug and the X Cut circle nesting dies, but you can just as easily make these with things you probably already have around the house.

What you’ll need:

Cut out triangle from the glitter card and attach to the top of the head.  Make a trim using the white card, and using the battery as a template cut out a pom pom.  Attach to the hat.

Step 6

Finally, draw on the eyes.

And hey presto, one very cute Santa gift tag.  You can also use these as Christmas card toppers, a garland or even hang from your tree!
