After making the Little Cottage Pop-up Card with the snowman on the front, I decided to make a fun gift tag with the Snowman. And I also decided a simple Scotty Dog gift tag would be fun too. These are truly easy crafts. Kids will love them.
Here's the Snowman Gift tags with the Little Cottage Pop-up Card that has the snowman on the front. I just added the hat.
And here is the Scotty Dog gift tag with the Scotty Dog Piñata Gift Box.

First, download the pattern for the gift tags from the Paper Glitter Glue library
So here is how to get the free pattern for the Snowman and Scotty Dog Gift Tag. Simply go to the Paper Glitter Glue library and type in the password to get the pattern. All my designs and patterns are listed chronologically. So locate the Snowman and Scotty Dog Gift Tag pattern in the December 2020 section of the library.
And how do you get the password to the library? Just subscribe to the Paper Glitter Glue newsletter with the form below and you get the password immediately. I also will send it to you with every email. Well, almost every email, sometimes I forget.
The free pattern is available in 2 formats - SVG for cutting machines, and as printable PDF files whichever one is most convenient for you.
Next cut out the pattern pieces for Snowman Gift Tag and Scotty Dog Gift tag
I use my Cricut to cut out the Snowman and Scotty Dog pieces. It makes it so easy. But I also included printable tags that you can print on card stock and cut out.
Both the Scotty Dog and the Snowman have a score line on the pattern. In Cricut design space, these lines are already designated as score and attached to the appropriate piece. So you don't have to do anything if you use a Cricut. If you use other cutting machines, then just designed the lines as a score line and attach.
In addition, the PDF patterns are pretty easy to cut out as well.
Assemble the gift tags
The snowman consists of 3 layers because I just didn't want to have to glue little black dots on the surface. This photo from the Little Cottage Pop-up cards shows you similar layers of the snowman. I added a hat and the arms to the cut outs for better support.
Here's how the main piece for the Snowman gift tag that opens up.
Glue the black layer to the top of the folded snowman gift tag. Follow that with the snowman layer that has the cutouts for the eyes, mouth, and buttons. Then glue on the arms, the hat, the scarf, and the carrot nose.
The Scotty Dog gift tag only needs a a bow or a scarf around the neck. It is seriously easy. Use a white pen to write on the black card stock.
Punch a hole on the Snowman's hat to attach a string. For the Scotty Dog, you can punch a hole on the tale to attach a string to attach it to the gift.
Now attach your cute gift tags to your gifts
