24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Brusho Lights

Day three in the 24 Tags of Christmas week brings none other than Brusho – watercolor powders! If you want more info on the powders, there’s a playlist HERE.

Brusho Lights

These tags are super easy to make – and your kids could make a lot of ornaments you can use for your holiday cards, too! The String of Lights dies are really sweet, and the watercolor powders add a strong pop of color and an artsy feel. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I was so surprised to find that using a little brusho on a bag – a bag with a plastic coating, no less – worked! You need to be gentle with water, but it’s really pretty!sandy-allnock-24tags16-3a

You can see all the tags from all years in the 24 Tags of Christmas Gallery!


Tradition is to give away the 24 tags…I’ll pick 24 winners from blog posts and YT comments, so leave some love and maybe you’ll win! Woohoo!
