Baby Jesus Tag / Ornament

Sorry it's been a while since my last post, I've been so busy!! Today I just had a little time to craft so I made this cute tag/ornament.
This is a rosette ornament. I cut two strips of double sided paper down to 12" x 1 1/2". I scored them at each 1/4" using my MS score board and fan folded the strips. Attach one end to the other (I used score tape) and flatten them to form a rosette. I punched little 1" circles and hot glued the pieces in this order:
1" circle, then first rosette, another 1" circle, small doily, ribbon for hanging, 1" circle, second rosette, and then the last 1" circle.

I stamped the "to:" and "from:" using a Studio G stamp onto a 1 1/2" circle and attached it to the back of my tag. 

See how cute it looks on a gift??


And after the gift is opened, it makes an adorable ornament too. :)

This cute little baby Jesus is from Winter Frolic. All his layers are cut at 2".  I used a Peachy Keen face from the Everyday Character Faces.

I added some inking around the manger and finished off the eyes with a white gel pen. I love that this entire project came from my scrap bin.
