If you have young children, it's likely you have an excess of abstract watercolor paintings--especially if you have a tendency to play Waldorf school now and then. What to do with all those paintings? They're too pretty to throw away, but I assure you your kids won't thank you if you save them in the musty basement and hand them over in a huge box along with all their spelling tests and vaccine records when they're 35 years old.
I've used ours for Mother's Day Cards, Valentines and gift tags.
For the gift tags, I just stick on blank mailing labels (there are usually a few blank ones left over at the bottom of a sheet after I print out our Christmas card labels or GEMINI mailing labels), cut out rectangles and punch a hole in the corner, then tie them to gift bags or packages. Pretty, fun and recycled. Yea!
