DIY Valentine's Day Gift Tags

A Valentine's Day craft for your special valentine! 

Love Tags:

Step 1

Draw a circle with a pencil using paper circle stencils (a compass may damage the paper). Consequently, use a somewhat stronger paper for drawing on and cutting out. Alternatively, you can also use an appropriately sized glass as a stencil.

Step 2

Gently draw your lettering using a pencil. You can divide up the available space well in this way.

Step 3

Use a Pitt Artist Pen® or a different felt-tip pen in a lighter tone and draw your lettering on the gift-tag word by word.

Take your time doing this. Use more pressure to create thicker lines and less pressure to keep the lines thin, thus creating a beautiful writing style. To get that light-to-dark-effect add more layers of the lighter color and blend it out.

Then use a fine brush and a bit of water to give the petals a natural look. This effect will bring the rose petals to life. Let it dry properly.
