Making Snowman Tags in 4 Steps
These simple snowman tags are so simple you probably don’t need directions. For the crafting newbies out there, it’s just a few simple steps to make these adorable simple snowman tags.
Here’s a quick run down, keep reading for details…
- Punch out the items:
- 3 circles, 2 Branch punch
- Cut nose or you can draw on a nose too
- Punch or Cut a tag
These are great for tag exchanges – easy to assemble, easy to prepare, and ADORABLE when done. Check out these winter crafts and the other snowman crafts listed at the end.
Assemble your simple snowmen tags
Here are the exact punches and circle sizes I used. The Martha Steward branch punch is no longer made, but there is other versions linked in the supplies. You can also draw on the arms.
Start with the bottom circle and layer them up. Overlapping each circle a bit to make your simple snowman tag. I toggled mine to make the snowman appear a little more whimsical.
My favorite look is to have the larger bottom circle off the edge of the tag. This adds some dimension to the tag and gives your snowman a fun, whimsical feel. I trimmed off the access from the large circle.
Tuck the arms/branches under the edge of the circle. I add mine on with a glue pen. You can also draw on the arms as shown here. They are simply lines and a few sticks for fingers.
Next, draw a simple smile on the face. These are perfect if you aren’t an artist. Everyone can draw a smile!
Add a small curved line at the end to accent his cheeks. This gives your snowman a little character.
I like to place the nose on first and have it go off the top of the circle to go with that whimsical feel again.
TIP: Punch a couple of extra circles and practice the smile before adding it to the tag. You might want to draw the face before you glue it on…. Sometimes it takes me a few tries to get the face just right. But that’s usually not a problem as it’s easy to cut a new circle out!
Lastly, finish off your tag with a hole on the top and some ribbon, raffia or twine.
NOTE: The branch punch I used by Martha Stewart doesn’t appear to be made anymore.
But here is one that is a similar option on Amazon. I’m sure you can cut branches on your Cricut®, but they are so small a punch makes it so much easier.
That’s it. These are so fun for tag parties (Where you have a handful of crafty friends gather and make tags. Each lady brings supplies for everyone to make one tag design. Then you come away with a stack of fun tags to use that year).
