Minion Gift Tags

   On what did you spend your last craft minutes before Christmas? Minion gift tags were my last minute "had to have".
   Yesterday I sent a text to my son who works at WalMart asking him to bring home some Minion Christmas gift tags for my grandson's packages. He told me that this would be too hard to find. My husband said, "Can't you just make those?" Well now that sounded like a challenge!

   I went to Karen Burniston's website for the directions to make a Minion from two of her die sets: Hoppy the Frog and Chilly the Penguin. I altered the directions a bit to create Kevin, the Reindeer;  Bob, the Elf, and Santa Stewart. 
   Several other Burniston dies were used to add some fun Christmas extras to the tags.
Kevin, the Reindeer

Bob, the Elf
Santa Stewart
