Twelve FREE Printable Holiday Tags to Watercolor

Sharing is caring!

Recently I had the opportunity to teach a bunch of folks How to Watercolor Twelve FREE Printable Holiday Tags! Y’all know that I just LOVE sharing my drawings and doodles, so when my favorite company Tombow USA reached out and asked me to teach a national online class for Michael’s (yes, THAT Michael’s) I was excited, thrilled, and beyond words! I am sharing some behind-the-scenes and all the files used in the class right HERE for y’all to enjoy. My Tombow and Michael’s Zoom Class is available and I am sharing the link below! I am sharing today as part of the Team Creative Crafts Gift Wrapping Crafts Edition, and I love to see all of the creative inspiration!

Here's how to Watercolor the Cutest Holiday Tags:


I love to use the Strathmore Watercolor Paper Pad which is 5.5″ by 8.5″ cut into thirds with my paper trimmer. Sketching hand-drawn images with the MONO Drawing Pencil 4H which is a hard lead and provides a very light line that is easy to erase. I LOVE my Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker to ink in all of the images on the tags. It has a larger bullet tip and a thin fine tip which is like two pens in one! The Tombow Watercolor Set includes five Dual Brush Pens (526, 757, 885, 993, and 249), Mono Drawing Pencil 4H, MONO Twin Permanent Marker, MONO Eraser, Blending Palette, and Water Brush. It is the perfect starter set!


Add color from the Tombow Dual Brush Pens in the Watercolor Set directly to the tags printed on watercolor paper. Blend colors with the Water Brush, applying light pressure with your finger and thumb at the barrel of the brush. This is the direct blending method.

Add more water to create a lighter wash of color or add less water to create a deeper color. Use the Blending Palette from the Watercolor Set by mixing colors and then adding those mixed colors to the watercolor paper tags. This is the indirect blending method.


Use a corner-rounder punch to round all four corners of the tag. Punch a hole in the top at the center of the tag. Cut a length of baker's twine or ribbon and tie in a bow. Add a message with either the Dual Brush Pens or the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen. Download the Twelve FREE Printable Holiday Tag files below ⇓
