Mickey Mouse® and Minnie Mouse® Inspired Gift Tags


This is a fun little post for you today!  I have a fantastic great-nephew who is a little bit obsessed with Mickey Mouse®.  He is two, so his Mickey obsession is completely normal.  And let's be serious here, who isn't obsessed with Mickey Mouse® at one time in their life or another?  
WE all love Mickey Mouse®!!!  And because we all love Mickey, I figured we all love Minnie Mouse® too!  So I made her as well!!

Have you ever made a special gift tag for someone you love?  I have, more than once, but this one is extra special because the recipient is extra special to me.  But, I have never made a Mickey Mouse® tag before, so this was completely new...and here it is! 

EEEK!  It's so adorable. What do you think?  I thought about trying to make Mickey's and Minnie's faces using punch art but I didn't want it to be just like those little famous mice.  So I decided to just stick to the colors associated with him, black red, gray, and white, And for her black, gray, pink, and white.  In Stampin' UP!® colors that would be, Basic Black, Real Red, Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate,and Whisper White.

Here is the back of the tag, same layout with the Real Red or Melon Mambo and Whisper White circles.  I just stamped a simple To: From: onto it to complete it.

I hope you like this simple little tag and make some for your own 
Mickey Mouse® or Minnie Mouse ® obsessed loved ones.

I appreciate you being a part of my Stampin' Journey!
I live & love to inspire you!


Measurements & Instructions
  1. Punch two 2 1/4in. Basic Black Circles.
  2. Punch two 1 1/2in. Basic Black Circles.  
  3. Apply Shimmery Crystal Effects to one of the 2 1/4in. circles and attach the mouse ears.  Then adhere the second 2 1/4in. circle onto the first circle so the ears are in between the two circles.
  4. Punch two 2in. Real Red Circles and adhere to the mouse head using Shimmery Crystal Effects.  I use this as the glue because I like the way it adheres.  It is very strong.
  5. Punch two 1 3/4in. Whisper White Circles.
  6. On one of those circles stamp the stars from the Holiday Haul Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  Then stamp "Very Merry" from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.  
  7. Punch a tiny heart using the Dog Builder Punch and then adhere to the stamped Whisper White Circle using a Mini Stampin' Dimensional.  Then adhere this to one side of the mouse, centered in the Real Red Circle.
  8. On the second Whisper White Circle, in Real Red Ink, stamp "To: From:" using the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. 
  9. Punch a small hole in the top of your mouse tag and thread about 8 inches of Basic Black Solid  Baker's Twine through the hole.  Voila!
