Snoopy Dog House Tag

I went to an open house last month at a friend's home and wanted to take a small housewarming gift that was Peanuts-themed, so I just had to make my gift wrap and tag to match.

Isn't that fun?  I've had this Hooray Snoopy stamp for ages and it paired perfectly with the Dog House dies from My Favorite Things.  I stamped some kraft art paper with the same image and a food bowl from You Make My Tail Wag, also by My Favorite Things, to wrap the gift.

I cut the dog house from Dark Chocolate cardstock and smudged the matching ink on it for shading.  I cut the roof and door frame pieces from Orange Zest cardstock, this time inking the edges with VersaMark ink.  For the banner, I used a die from Tag Sale: Quilted by Papertrey Ink and stamped a sentiment from Teepee Time.  I stamped Snoopy on white cardstock and hand-cut him out.  After assembling the pieces, I tied it to the ribbon with Cappuccino twine.

I love making things like this.  It was perfect for my Peanuts-loving friends!
