Nordic Style Wooden Christmas Stocking Tag.

Following on from yesterday, and my “eared snowman” I found these wooden stocking tags much easier to work with (part of a pack of 4 x 2 designs from Poundland.

I drew round the wooden stocking and then cut the shape out, but it didn’t matter how careful I was, I still had to trim sparingly and then trim some more, to get a perfect fit.

The stocking top, heel and toe were then cut using a contrasting paper…….

Initially these are tags to put on presents, but after I see no reason why they couldn’t be hung on a tree as a decorations.
