print out "santa stop here" digi stamp and Santa image sized to fit tag center, ink stamp in red and cut around all images.
Paint your tag in a shabby chic style (leaving some of the natural color to peek through) and let dry. take santa image and stamp and dry brush white paint to look distressed.
layer at bottom of tag your lace trims using your red line tape then brush with white paint and let dry.
adhere the Santa image to center of tag and using festibe bead trim create a wreath around him, it is easiest to do a small section at a time using your crafting clamp to hold it in place as it dries.
