INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print a photo of your dog (or all the dogs you’re gifting) on to photo paper (we used 5×5 inch paper, though standard 6×4 is fine. Depending on the size of your bauble tag, you might need to reduce the size of your image so your pup’s face fits nicely.)
  • Fill the baubles with your dog treats.
  • Once you’ve filled your bauble, close it and attach your ribbon. Set aside. 
  • Place the tag on top of your dog’s photo, ensuring their face fits within the tag. Draw around the tag, then cut around the outline.
  • Now, go ahead and glue the cut-out photo to the tag.
  • Attach the photo tag to the ribbon, along with your chosen tassel. 
  • Hang on your tree, or gift to your dog-loving friends!

Optional: 

  • For a little extra sparkle, you can add a glittery initial to your bauble!
  • Use a glue gun to write the letter, then sprinkle with your favourite coloured glitter. If (like ours) your glue gun sets instantly, you’ll need to sprinkle fast.
