Craft Stick Reindeer Tags

Following on from the other day, I just couldn’t resist getting another packet of the wooden gold glitter reindeer embellishments from The Works, and after today….. I think I will be back for another couple of packets as the ideas are still flowing!
CRaft Stick Reindeer TagsI decided to make a frame tag using some small coloured craft sticks (7.5cm x .6cms) I found in The Range.
I glued the frames together using PVA.
When the frames were dry I matched them and the reindeer heads with a suitably patterned and roughly in proportion Christmas paper.

To neaten the back of the tags I covered the backing paper with a scrap of white card edged with a black fine liner pen, so that a message can be added at a later date.  I also drilled a hole in the top corner of the frame for a jump ring and tying/hanging thread.

Apart from adding googly eyes and a red flat back gem nose to the reindeer, I also drilled a hole through each antler to accommodate a small gold jingle bell attached by a jump ring.
