Watercolor Gift tags

I know this might seem like a lot just for a gift tag, but really they only took me 15 minutes to make and it's the little details that make up an impressive and thoughtful gift so I find them worth it. 

What you need: Watercolors, Watercolor paper, paint brush, ribbon, scissors, water, hole punch.

STEP 1: Cut paper into gift tag shapes.

STEP 2: Paint! TIP: when writing in watercolors I find it best to use a thick stoke when writing downward, baring down onto the paper, and to use a light stroke when writing upward, letting only the tip of the brush graze the paper. 

STEP 3: After they dry add holes to thread ribbon thru. 

Viola! Happy crafting!
