DIY Gift tags inspired by Sara Midda's South of France ~ A SketchbookDIY Gift tags inspired by Sara Mida's South of FranceInspired by the book cover of Sara Midda’s South of France ~ A Sketchbook,  I created a few one of a kind gift tags.  Now for true artists, this may seem rather mundane, but with just a few school supplies like simple water colors, a brush and a piece of cream colored construction paper I made cards much like the cover of the book.  We are going to France next month and I have been reading and cooking and studying up for the trip.  I normally remove the dust jackets from my books…but not this one, how could I? DIY Gift tags inspired by Sara Midda's South of FranceDIY Gift tags inspired by Sara Midda's South of FranceI mounted the paper to a piece of thick water color paper and then cut them using a Fiskar’s paper cutter.  Add a piece of twine and attach it to gift.

DIY Valentine’s Day Cards

Saturday, January 28, 2017

I grew up where every holiday meant a Hallmark greeting card.  There is nothing wrong with a store bought card, but why not make them?  This year I saw that Dunkin Donuts has new premium teas and one called Hibiscus Kiss.   I purchased a box and then got out my watercolor paints.

DIY Valentine's Day Card

Using inexpensive watercolors and watercolor paper, I quickly painted messy stripes in shades of pink on both sides of the paper.

Once the paper was dry I went back and in some blank spaces added the Happy Valentine’s Day message.  I used this pen in a very narrow tip kind of like I did here.

DIY Valentines's Day Cards

I use a fiskar’s paper cutter to trim the card and a heart punch to make watercolor hearts.  Each one is unique.  You can move the heart punch around the paper to create your little abstract painted heart.

DIY Valentine's Day Cards

Put a packet of Dunkin Donuts Hibiscus Kiss Tea, a watercolor note and some hearts in an envelope and send to your Valentine.  I used envelopes that I already had and so each “card” was less than a dollar.  Way less than a store bought card and you really put your heart into making them!  Add an address label from tinyprints and a love stamp and pop them in the mail.
