Celebrating Valentine’s Day with creative gifts
If you are looking for the perfect gift on February 14th, here’s a lovely way of creating a little work of art with the Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Markers: print out our coloring template and color in the different flowers and leaves with your favorite colors. Then stick your sheet of paper onto a colorful card and frame it – and you have a gift for a very special person.
You can also design your own gift tag to hang on the wrapped picture frame. Be inspired by our multilingual gift tag template!
Combine watercoloring and hand lettering
Do you want to send your Valentine wishes? With our template, Goldfaber Aqua watercolor pencils and a brush, you can conjure up a beautiful card in next to no time! Try out different color combinations and add hand-lettering elements using Pitt Artist Pens.
Tip: Add some shiny touches with the Metallics Markers!
Simply design your greetings card and gift tag
In addition to hand lettering, the Pitt Artist Pens can also be used to design flowers and leaves, for example: try a combination of both techniques with our template and make your card shine with finishing touches courtesy of the gold-colored Metallics Marker!
To make gift tags with your messages of love truly extra special, cut out a rectangular piece of card slightly larger than the paper featuring your decorative hand lettering. Punch holes in both and use an attractive ribbon to hang one behind the other on your gift.
Tip: Do a preliminary sketch of the hand-lettering elements with the Pitt Artist Pen XS or S and then add some life to the card and tag with different colors!
DIY gift tags with hand lettering
Use our templates to make up creative gift tags in a flash! Either print them out or use the lettering as inspiration for your own hand lettering to turn colorful cards into gift tags with heart-warming messages. Try out the various tips of the Pitt Artist Pens to apply different hand-lettering varieties. Round off the tags with a bow and add them to your gift or alternatively tie them onto your gift!
