It’s that time of year! I’ve been creating 24 tags, four per video in a series of six, for years now….today’s has no coloring either, GASP! Two in a row!


Watch the video below or click HERE to see it directly on YouTube.

Don’t discount fussy cutting’s ability to be easy! Stamp the base paper with the image, then you can cut “inside” the black stamped line when cutting out the critters. No need to go “around” fur, whiskers – or even tails. (A white gel pen fixes any little bits that you cut off!

I gave these critters a “ground” to stand on because of this little guy: no falling from the sky, little mouse!

If choosing images to fussy cut, find simpler shapes that are a little larger. This scarf is much easier than the tiny ones on the mice.

My favorite stamp here was the bunny for sure….I’m giving all these tags away but I think my gifts will all have these tags this year.


The tag giveaway is simple – just leave comments here on the blog, and for a second chance you can leave another on YouTube too! At the end of the series I’ll be picking winners – so comment by Sunday night and I’ll announce winners next Monday!
