Homemade Gift Tags Day 6: Button Snowman

by | DIY, Paper, Winter

What day are we on now?  Day 6?  Alright!  Half way through!  Here’s my Button Snowman Gift Tag.

Button Snowman gift tag.

Ok, I think this one today is my favorite gift tag of them all.  I dunno, maybe it’s tied for another one coming up next week.  You know what I love?  The ripped paper.  Yup, saw the idea on Pinterest, (where else right?) and then I crossed my fingers and hoped I had some thick textured paper hiding somewhere in my craft room.  I really didn’t want to go out to the store just to buy paper just to go home and rip it up!  And voila!  I had some thick homemade-ish paper left over from my wedding – yay for hoarding!


3 white buttons – small, medium and large
thick textured white/off-white paper
black pen
scrapbook paper
super glue and craft glue

Building the Snowman

1. Rip the white textured paper to make the “snow”.  I found that the homemade style paper rips well and gives that fluffy look on the edges.  You don’t want it to rip cleanly in this case.  Rip 2 “hills” and layer them for a more dimensional look.

2. Glue the buttons on to build the snowman.  Use super glue.  See why here.

3. Cut out a small rectangle from the scrapbook paper to make the hat, and outline it with the black marker.

4. Dance around and sing Frosty the Snowman!

White buttons and white paper make this Button Snowman Gift Tag!

    I love the Christmas tags. But I was wondering what you used for the tag itself. Yesterday I sW one that you printed in your printer. And today I love the tags that are brown color. Hope someone can help me. I want to make some of them.

    Thank U
