Water Colour Gift Tags

Posted 2015-11-02 by Wendyfollow
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.
