Advent Snowman Tags

Lisa here today with Advent Snowman Tags
These cute little tags are the perfect touch to use to count down til Christmas.  Whether you just use the tags to hang on the tree or tie to tiny gifts. 
One side has the day number and the other, handsome snowman face. 
I made 24 to count down til Christmas from Dec 1 - Dec 24. 
I computer generated the Days in Publisher using 1 3/4" text boxes.
Using the circle die, I cut out each number and 24 plain white circles from 80# cardstock that will still run through my printer, for the other side.
 Here 's what you need to make each tag. 
I cut out 48 circles (24 with days, 24 plain), 48 black hats, 48 long scarfs for the hats and 24 carrot noses. I adhered the circles with dimensional tape.  I used 48 small google eyes.
 The scarfs I adhered flat to the hats.
I first make sure the day number is straight and upright then turn over.  I adhered the hat with double sided tape at an angle.  Then flipped over, placed a piece of dimensional tape on the hat above the head, then adhered the other hat with double sided tape flat, lined up with the other.  Then turned over again and used glossy accents to adhere the google eyes.  The carrot nose I adhered with a tiny piece of dimensional tape.
 Here they are ready for the finishing touches. 
I used my crop-a-dile punch to punch a 1/8" hole and used thin gold cord to hang my tags by. 
 Here's a view of all 24 tags ready to put on my tiny Advent gifts to count down til Christmas.
