Recently, I feel like I’ve entered a very creative period when it comes to crafting and card making. It feels great! Especially after going through some stints there where I found it tough to be creative whatsoever. I’ve just been letting the ideas flow, and I’m excited to share some of them with you in the coming weeks. This week – tags! I’ve been making them like a crazy person.

I think when you’re in a creative rut, the best place to start is somewhere simple. And that’s what I did here. I had recently gifted two coworkers with some soap, and I  wanted to personalize the bars I gave them, so I grabbed a piece of scrap watercolor paper that I had previously painted (but had no idea what to do with), and just started cutting tags out of it. I used a die that seems to no longer be available from Simon Says Stamp (womp), but I really liked the simplicity of the whole thing. I also added some initials to the tags to personalize them.  So, that got the wheels turning. I painted more panels in the same striped fashion and started cutting tags from them.

After that I just couldn’t stop! :)  I started painting some watercolor paper with  really loose and haphazard washes of color, and made more tags in a rainbow of colors. Now, I have no shortage of cute embellishments for packages, and I’m also selling them in packs of 10 in my Etsy shop.
