After selling the last of my Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags at the last market. I decided that there was a need to sit down and make some more! They are such a fun project and I thought I would share my super easy tutorial on how to make them. Not only do they make a lovely addition to your gift wrapping but they also make sweet Christmas decorations for your tree. The possibilities are endless!
Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags
- Kraft Tags
- Vintage White Buttons – All different sizes
- Fine Sharpie
- Hot Glue Gun – I cannot recommend enough the Bosch Glue gun rather than the small craft ones. Very minimal drips and it doesn’t chop through the glue sticks
- Red Butchers Twine
- Black Stamp Pad
From the Raggedy Bits Project Barn
I have been collecting buttons for years! Some belonged to my Granny and others I have picked up along the way at garage sales and thrift stores. It’s just been nice to use some of the older ones to make Christmas Decorations like these snowman tags. So that every time I look at them I remember my Granny and she’s here with us at Christmas!
Step 1– Stamp on the bottom of each kraft tag with your selected stamps using the black ink pad. This way then you know exactly how much room you have to work with, with your buttons. Let them dry.
Step 2 – Selecting 3 different sizes of button’s use your glue gun to adhere to the tags. Bigger one on the bottom, medium in the middle and small on the top. Repeat until you have a number of tags needed.
Step 3– Make tiny bows using the butcher’s twine and attach with your glue gun. Then take your sharpie and draw some little twig arms. Loop through some jute at the top of the tags to finish!
Voila’! Easy peasy!! There you have some adorable Vintage Button Snowman Christmas Tags all ready to jazz up your prezzies or tree this holiday season! As I know this time of year can get super busy and you may not have time to make them you can find them here in my shop!
Happy Tag making 🙂
