I designed a fair few arty pieces these past couple of weeks for my redbubble shop and one in particular became a firm favourite. This little shy Mermaid is so cute and I just love the chaotic background and colour palette, that I decided she would be great on a matching gift set.
My friend Heather is obsessed with the sea, blues, ocean related things, so what better opportunity to sort her Christmas present out and make it ultra cute. The present I pack on screen (which is one of my makes and can be found here) is only her small part and I kept the large present away in case she does find this video or blog, LOL. She doesn’t watch craft videos or mosey to my blog very often so I am sure this secret will be safe between us all.
I have created an easy printable file which you can access below. It’s a PDF and can be printed on A4 card in white or cream. It has 4 gift tags, 2 small images for cards, boxes, even larger tags and one larger image for a gift bag or large card. I have added an extra sheet with different sized tags too.
Just print as many as you like and tag me on FB using #OCFcrafts so I can find you, or tag my creative page here – https://www.facebook.com/OCFCrafts
I have filmed my process to give you ideas on how to use the printable and would love to know if you do use them. Although it is just a guide and you can use them in any way you like.
If paper-crafts are not your thing , you can still print the tags from the extra tag sheet below and just cut them out to adorn presents. No fuss, just cut out and use. Just print them out on a high quality colour setting.
The bag template
The bag I make on screen was a quick made up bag to suit the piece of paper I had left over. I found these easy templates for you to use if making bags is not your thing and my bag is hard to follow. 16 different templates so you can choose the style you want.
