Let It Snow Wooden Tags 2
The tags in today’s post started life out as a box of animal dominoes that I got at a carboot sale for 50p!

I covered them with blue patterned paper and some glitter card and then embellished them with snowmen buttons (I coloured their scarves and buttons with Sharpies permanent pens), handwritten sentiments, a few stars and a bit of faux stitching.

Before starting I checked that the ink from a black fine liner pen would not bleed into the wood and that you could write a message on the back.Let It Snow tag 1  
On the finished tag backs I have just done the faux stitching, leaving the middle blank.

I used my Aldi Craft drill set (bought a little while ago) to put the holes for the thread fastenings.

I also tried making a heart shaped tag along the same lines, but I am not so happy with it…. however, if you can wait a day or two I have altered the design a little bit with more pleasing results.
