About This Class

Do you have a growing collection of watercolor test swatches and experiments but don't know what to do with them?

In this quick class I share some inspiration for creating gift tags for your holiday packages. Using your painting scraps and a few simple tools you can create beautiful, unique adornments that show your love of watercolor.

These tags are also a great way to spruce up your packages if you have a handmade business. Collections of handmade watercolor tags make great gifts, too.

Please note, this is not a painting class, but the paintings that you'll be using to create your own tags require very little skill or effort. I give a few suggestions and ideas throughout the class and share glimpses from one of my other classes to help explain a couple techniques.
