This is Karen and I am here to share a quick and pretty tag with you. Sometimes when I am wrapping a present, I like to add a little personal piece to it. These quick tags make it easy to personalize without feeling like a burden.
I covered the background with fabric tape, colored the edges with acrylic paint and then added a little bit of burlap trim. I then added my canvas butterfly (which I painted with acrylic) on top. I used two tall pins to make its antannae. A beautiful white flower on top of my butterfly made it even prettier. I took a wooden tag and stamped "thanks" directly on it. A chipboard star, painted with gesso and glossied up with glossy accents was my last and final step. Even though it's a quick one, doesn't it feel so nice when you see a hand-made tag on a present you receive?
Sometimes we make things so much harder than they have to be. Looking at this tag still makes me happy and allows me to carve a little creative time without feeling like I have to sit down and spend hours on a layout.
A win-win if you ask me.
Have you ever made a quick and pretty tag? Do you personalize your presents? If so, please link me up in the comments, I'd love to see them!
