12 Tags of Christmas 2020 – Day 2 with Ardyth Percy-Robb

Welcome to Day 2 of 12 Tags of Christmas 2020!

Today were thrilled to welcome Ardyth Percy-Robb to the blog with her whimsical tag, inspired by “The Little Drummer Boy”!

I used lots of recently-released Essentials by Ellen products which are all listed below, to make this tag/ornament that can transition from gift to tree with ease!

I even ensured that he looks good from the back, adding a date and making sure that there was no tape sticking out

Here’s a video showing all the techniques I used to make this adorable little drummer boy!

    Your tag/ornament is super cute! I would love to make these for my sons who were both percussionists in their high school bands! And, one of them did play the snare.
