Punch Santa Tags
Good Saturday morning Peeps!! How is your weekend going?
Yesterday while I was blog surfing I came across these really cute Santa tags made with the SU scallop die, which I don't have, but I wanted to make some anyway and I thought I could use my Marvy scallop punch. Well, guess what? It worked great, must be close to the same size as the SU die.
I started by punching a scallop circle of blush blossom, real red and whisper white. the whisper white piece is folded in half, to create the tag that opens, the red circle is cut straight across at the ninth scallop , and the blush blossom circle is left whole to mount everything on. The eyes are 1/4" punch, the nose is the 1/2" punch the mustache is the 1" circle punch cut in half and the pink tongue is another 1/4" circle. The "fur" is made with the three for you flower punch. The pom-pom is a 3/4" circle punch in white. Aren't they adorable?
And a side view so you can see how the beard opens to write a message or to use as a name tag on a gift.
They make up very quick, I made these 6 in less than 30 minutes and that included searching for all the right punches and cardstock and tying on the silver cord. Now go make you a bunch!!
Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!!
