Making your own gift tags can be a lovely way to personalise a gift. You've put so much thought into choosing the right gift, why then just slap a store bought tag on it?

These tags are quick, easy and fun to make. My kids had endless fun with this activity and I'm sure yours will too.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Water colour paper or other heavy weight paper
Food colour in various colours
Spray bottle and water
Straws
Scissors or craft knife and cutting mat

Method
Cover work surface. Put a few drops of each colour in small containers (like an egg cup). Dip the end of a straw into the food colour and dot over the page. Repeat with as many other colours as you like.



Before the drops of colour can dry, spray water across your page. The more water you use, the more the colour will run. Experiment with the affect you want.

If your little one floods the paper, blot off the extra water with paper towel.




After the paper has dried completely, cut to size. We cut ours into 4cm by 6cm rectangles. Using a craft knife and cutting board will make this step quicker but must be done by an adult.

And you're done. If you wish you can punch a hole in the tag and tie a string through it or you can leave as is and attach with tape.
