Here is a really fun little idea if you know children who enjoy painting with watercolor sets. Back in the day, my kids loved to receive a new watercolor set, or maybe a paint with water book. I think most kids instinctively like to paint (and most parents instinctively dread the mess that can accompany painting).
This idea for a gift set using a box of watercolors and some printable coloring tags looks like so much fun! And there's an upcycling aspect to it in that you use a heavy business-size envelope, folded, to make the gift pocket to package it all in.
The graphics were a team effort between Keren at Free Pretty Things for You and Lori at ChouxChoux Paper Art. Aren't they just the most adorable vintage images? They remind me of when I was a child, sometimes the kids in our family would receive a set of little activity books for coloring, dot-to-dots, mazes, crafts, etc. The covers were always really nifty and resembled the design on this gift.

I might try this out for some of the kids in my life. I almost think I have everything I need on hand to make some of these What about you?
