I love to design and send handmade cards for all of the holidays to family and friends. What I don't like is getting a card back as undeliverable due to lack of postage. I don't know about you but I want to know in advance that I can send my cards using a Forever Stamp. It's the spontaneity of sending a card that I love. These tags fit into an envelope and ship with a Forever Stamp. Perfect Solution!!! I've painted on these tag shapes for many of the seasons and holidays, in fact you will be seeing more of my designs coming out very soon. I hope that you will love them as much as I do. Cut your own tag out of 140# watercolor paper, most of us have watercolor paper on hand and if you don't it is easy to purchase at many of the box stores or art supply stores. The outline shape for the tag is included with the pattern. I wait for a sale and then stock up. Add a pocket to the back of the tag to send money, a gift card, or a personal note to someone special! I have painted tags with pockets for my adult children for years at Christmas time, hang them on the tree Christmas morning and keep the mystery of Santa alive for children of all ages.
Are you familiar with gel printing? If you are, good for you, if not join me on You Tube to watch as I gel print my own personal papers to use in my designs. This is one of those projects that I have printed the paper I used for the bottle on the front of this tag. Gel printing is fun, exciting, frequently unpredictable, and so incredibly rewarding. How wonderful to be able to print the papers that I am using on my designs instead of having to depend on the scrapbooking industry to design papers I love, and more importantly I don't have to worry about angel policies or copyright on those papers. The links to my You Tube gel printing sessions are included in the pattern. Give me a thumbs up and become a follower! It helps me out!!
If you don't like to gel print no worries, I ALWAYS include the painting instructions for all of my patterns so you can either paint your own papers or paint the object that I used gel printed papers on. I also included a template for adding your own pocket to the back of this tag in the pattern. If you do not want to print your own gel printed papers I am offering a kit with enough watercolor paper to complete the project and a 5" square gel print which is printed by yours truly. Look under the Kit Category to learn more about my watercolor tag kits.
