It's gift-giving season again! Ready to make some pretty watercolor gift tags? If you have some left-over watercolor paper scraps, this is the perfect use for them!
Here's what you need:
Step 1: Paint!
Paint small watercolor trees, Christmas wreaths, poinsettia flowers, ornaments, or flower garlands on your watercolor paper scraps.
Have fun and play with your color palette. I didn't paint any pink Christmas trees, but I think that would be an awesome idea! Also, don't worry about making these paintings look realistic. The quicker and more fluid, the better.
Step 2: Cut
Cut your paintings out of the paper to make small tags. For the wreaths, I cut around the edges of the painting. For the trees, I used my paper cutter and made rectangular tags.
Step 3: Punch
Use a small hole punch to punch out a hole in the top of each of your tags.
Step 4: Tie
Cut small lengths of string. I used baker's twine purchased from the dollar store. Tie a string through the hole at the top of each tag.
When your tags are all done, use a pen to write your "to's" and "from's" on your tags. Use the loose ends of the strings to tie your beautiful watercolor gift tags to your gifts.
Happy gift giving!
