You will need:
- Cotton makeup cloths
- Paper clips
- Take a cotton round and put a dot of glue on one edge and then secure another round to it. Do the same with that round until you have three in a row to form a snowman shape.
- Use a pen or marker to write your gift tag info on one side of the snowman.
- Flip the snowman over and decorate by adding coal eyes, a carrot nose, buttons, scarf and hat. Or whatever you prefer
- Using a scissors snip a small hole in the top of the snowman's head.
- Next take a paper clip and open it up a bit to resemble an ornament hook.
- Slip the hook through the hole and your tag becomes an ornament.
- Hook the ornament through the bow of your gift or tape the bow gently to the wrapping paper.
