This week I wanted to show you how to use Tombow Dual Brush Pens to make some cute watercolor-look tags for your holiday gifts. You’ll need the following supplies to get started.
Step 1: Applying the Color
To make your watercolor-look gift tags, start by putting some ink down on your XL Blending Palette using your Dual Brush Pens. Try some different color combinations. Then spray the ink with water. Lay your watercolor paper or card on top and give it a good smush to make sure the ink blends.
Carefully lift the paper off and let it dry. Watch the video below to see the steps in action.
Step 2: Trace Your Tags
Using a light pencil, trace gift tag outlines onto the paper. I used a store-bought tag I had lying around.
Step 3: Cut Out Your Tags
Cut around each of your traced tags and voila, you’re ready to wrap!
You could get really creative with your color combinations, no need to stick to traditional holiday colors!
