Baaah Humbug Christmas Tags with Audrey

Hello there!! Audrey here!  Can you believe it's Christmas Eve?!  Holy sheep, did this year go fast!!  Speaking of sheep, I couldn't let the holiday season come to a close without using one of my most favorite stamp sets of 2015, Lawn Fawn's Baaah Humbug!  I just can't get enough of these cute little critters!  I needed to make gift tags for a few packages, and these are the perfect size!  I stamped and colored the standing sheep, a bunch of packages and Santa hats, and then diecut them all with the coordinating Baaah Humbug dies.  To create a tag, I diecut the sheep 6 more times, this time, with no stamping, so it was just the sheep shape (say that 5 times fast!).  I punched a tiny hole the the top of the blank sheep, and added a horizontal score line just below the hole.  Before adhering the front of the tag, I threaded some red and white twine through the holes, and then glued the two pieces together with a strip of scor-tape.  I wanted a very strong adhesive to make sure that the did not come apart.  I gave each sheep a present to hold, which I popped up with foam tape, then added a Santa hat to each, and accented with a white gel pen.

Since I am the only person in my family to make my gift tags, everyone knows who the present is from and there is no need to sign the tag, so I just stamped the name of each recipient using Milo's ABCs and Lobster ink.

That's all for me today!!  I wish you all a blessed Christmas with your families!!
