Over the summer I bought a bunch of simple paper tags pretty much because they were on sale and cute. But I have been waiting for something to do with them. UNTIL NOW
I broke out my water colors, and the glitter and ribbon I got from the Target dollar section. NOTE: this is not an ad ( I think you have to have more than like five followers for someone to want you to advertise for them haha, but Targ if ya see this and want to give me free glitter, there are no complaints here)
Okay here is the easiest tutorial ever. -That is the beauty of watercoloring and glitter, they don’t need much work to be beautiful.
Okay are you ready for your directions?
Step one: Get supplies
Step two: Take up as much table space as you possibly can. Oh and you should also probably light a luscious smelling candle
Step three: Use some type of brush tool to swipe a thin layer of modge podge on some of your tags. This is where you can be creative, sprinkle the glitter on the whole thing, half of it, in a pattern. GO WILD
Step four: Let those dry and fill two glasses of water. -One is for watercoloring, the other is for drinking. I mean ya gotta keep your creative brain hydrated!
Step five: I put a piece of paper under all the tags I was going to watercolor so I didn’t have to stay on the tags. Also once again this is where you get to be creative and choose your colors, how intense you want the hues, the design and all that good stuff.
In retrospect I wouldn’t have put the tags on black paper because it kinda bled on some of them. But the fronts sure look cute!
Step six: Go eat a cookie or two and then string some ribbon or string through your beautiful tags. Then even if you give someone a crappy gift, at least it will be wrapped pretty!
