Sketchbook Gift Tag or Christmas Ornament


I made this for a card swap. It's the first time in a long time that I invented one from the ground up. I usually look through books and internet pages to get ideas and inspiration. This one was inspired by the cute little watercolor set and the swap theme "Gift Tags." I was compelled to use the party favor in some way. I kept waking up in the middle of the night with ideas. It feels silly to lay awake at night working on something in my head, but it feels good too. Worrying never helps, but being creative does . . .

Very creative! And such a cute little paint set. Will the receiver appreaciate the art supplies? If not, I'd be tempted to make another and save your first one as a tree ornament for 2006.

This is beautifully designed. Maybe you should make them up in quantity.

Very cute!!! Is there watercolor paper inside the tag? Be sure to give it to someone who'll appreciate it!

Yes, I did use watercolor paper! The little paint sets come in a package of 12. I'll be making up a few more of them today.
