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!

    I know the mosaic drum band was more work, but it turned out sooooo fabulous! I love that effect, and will have to remember to try it. Steps up the paper-strip technique. I love how the tag/ornament came out overall, too. Thanks for sharing, & have an awesome day! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    Tags often take as much time to make as a card so turning it into an ornament is genius! I love your little drummer boy, so cute! Who wouldn’t want to hang him on their tree?
