Abstract Painted Gift Tags

Back when I was a kid, I thought it was so cool to have a summer birthday. You didn’t have to go to school, the weather was hot, and something like a pool party or going to an amusement park was an option. So, while my mom did make strawberry cupcakes for all my classmates on my birthday, just being at school kinda sucked. Now that we’re all adults, it doesn't really matter as much. We all probably have to work on our birthdays anyway (cue the crying) so it's now an even playing field. For that next birthday king or queen, how about a handmade gift tag for their present? It’s incredibly fun and easy to make- anyone can do it!

1. Cut out your tags from the card stock in your choice of colors. You'll need 2 pieces of cardstock for each tag you're making. I used the same color for both sides.

2. Paint abstract designs using your choice of paint colors on one of the cardstock tags. For the designs, I kept it simple with xoxo, lines, dots, etc. You can be as simple or as complex as you want.

3. While the paint dries, cut a piece of embroidery floss for the tag.

4. Glue the embroidery floss on the back of the tag, then glue on the blank tag to create a seamless background.
