Mini Watercolour Tags

Mini Watercolour Tags

A while ago, I decided to let my long-forgotten watercolours shine and spent an afternoon playing with them. I created a few simple bookmarks that day and was left with some scraps of watercolour paper which I didn’t want to go to waste. So, without a real plan, I made a few little tags. They’re really tiny – 3.5x5cm – but I think they’d look okay used as gift tags, perhaps?

I usually try to make crafts with a purpose in mind and always feel bad when I create something that will forever stay in my box of unused crafted items. At the same time, though, these tiny pointless mini projects are simply pure joy to work on. 10 minutes and an entire project is done! Any ideas for how to give purpose and second life to such simple, little creations? I’m all ears!

    1. Awh, thank you! I’d be so, so happy being able to sell my crafts. Sadly, being realistic, my crafts usually take a long time to make – I wouldn’t be able to make ends meet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  1. I love them! I agree they would make a nice gift tag. Or a backdrop to a dinner name card. They could put into a collage to make a nice picture. Many wonderful options. ๐Ÿ™‚
