Framed Snowmen Tags

Framed Snowman Tags
At last …. I have used up all the little wooden frames I have had for years, after foolishly buying in bulk. Originally they had a boat in the centre on  a wire and a sea shell, but I pulled them all apart and used all the boats, to be left with a pile of frames, aggghh.
Craft for Christmas Embellishments
I liked the snowmen for their naive style and as they were reduced to 72p for a pack of 8 last Christmas I snapped up a couple of packs at my local garden centre.
Framed Snowman tag
I’ve used a white gel pen to doodle patterns on the frame and made the background using scraps of pastel blue polka dot and white glitter paper, stuck on a Kraft card base.  When glued on and turned over I have handwritten the label, adding a bit of frou frou!
Back of Snowman Tag
All that was left to do then was to drill a hole and add a tie. Done and festively dusted!

Cute snowman face and once again really versatile.....could hang on the tree, embellish a gift or stocking, or even be propped on a bookcase or mantle, or hung on a wreath or garland....could go on and on with endless ideas for this wonderful snowman in a frame....Dianne
