The Nutcracker

This is the second of four gift tags I created that are inspired by The Nutcracker Ballet. It makes a great looking tag to put on a Christmas Gift!

The fun is in the details! I used red pastel to make the cheeks (colored pencil would also work), gold ribbon and gold sticker dots on his jacket and hat and I used black puffy paint for his eyes.

To make the nose more 3D, I glued 3 pieces together make it thicker. When putting on the mustache, glue only in the center of the piece so that the sides are not attached to the face. Make sure to put on the cheeks before the mustache and nose.


Cardstock - Red, Green, Black, White, Gold

Cricut Pen - Black

I love to share! This tag is ready to make if you’re a Cricut user. I designed it on Cricut Design Space. 😍 You can make it yourself!

I am posting a new gift tag a day the entire month of November. Join me and make a tag a day and by the end of the month you will have 30 tags ready for Christmas!

Happy Christmas Crafting!
