Simple Watercolor Gift Tags

TGIF!  I’m blogging today from Atlanta, GA  – tonight kicked off my very first Haven Conference {a blog conference}.  I’m already exhausted, but having a BLAST!  However, I couldn’t possibly think about not sharing something fun with all of you.  How about a weekend craft that’s easy and fabulous?  I’d love to share a fun watercolor project.

Years ago I purchased a set of watercolor pencils to use when stamping cards, etc.  My sister and I used to make and sell cards and we thought these watercolor pencils were the bomb-diggity.  After seeing so many fun watercolor projects around the web, I was inspired to put my watercolor pencils to good use and make some Watercolor Gift Tags.

    Luv simplicity and easiness of this project. Altho have wanted to try water coloring was too chicken to attempt. When I saw title of your post I thought I don’t have any watercolors, but was glad to see you used pencils, awesome Kelly.
    Due to your wonderful and wise inspiration I will actually do this. Will cut out some tags and get busy. Might just have to hand write any words on tags but guess that would be ok for a gift? Have been on bit of hiatus from crafting. I get that way sometimes, need some time to refresh the old brain. I was going on adrenoline for few weeks fixing up our living room, ran out of steam.
    Hope you’re having wonderful time at Haven. Enjoy, learn then pass it on to rest of us.

      Thanks JaneEllen! You will love making these tags…and it’s such a personal touch to add to a gift. :) We all go through times where just run out of steam from crafting and such. We just rejuvenate and get back into the groove. Have has been wonderful…so blessed to be here. Enjoy your weekend. HUGS!
