Is it just me or are handmade tags so much fun to make?
Better yet, watercolor tags! I've always loved playing with watercolors as a kid. I got my first very own set ( which is by the way still some where in my painting stash) when I was in first grade. The feeling I had when I ripped the wrapping paper open and saw the first glimpse of the tip of the box that says "Non-toxic Watercolors" is one I'll never forget. It actually still draws a smile on my face every time I remember it. Yep, here we go again! :)
The other day I had some leftover watercolor paper that I just couldn't get myself to throw away. So I ended up making these:
I tried a couple of painting techniques. First I went with different shades of the same color. Perfect stress reliever!
Then I tried including 2-3 colors and blending them together. Both techniques turned out beautiful and I'm pretty contented with the results.
After the paper was completely dried I cut them into little tags and punched holes near the tops.
Next was lettering time! I had the intention of leaving them blank and personalizing them whenever I needed attaching one to a gift, but I was craving for some lettering fun!
So I pretty much decorated all of them in a matter of 15 minutes. Ah.. feels much better!
I now have a nice stock of pretty gift tags ready to add the perfect touch to a handmade gift.
