Fun Tag Project!

I had so much fun making these coffee stained tags!  I just went to my local office supply store and bought a package of plain white shipping tags.  (They were very inexpensive...I think I got 150 for like $2.99!)  I like tags with a vintage, aged look, especially when I stamp beautful images on them.  That's why I decided to make coffee stained tags!  Check out my pictures and easy steps below!
 
I just took my leftover morning coffee and poured it into a large paper plate. 

Next, I put about 15 tags into the coffee and let them sit for about an hour.  I made sure they were all covered in the coffee. 

Then, I layed them out to dry over night on some paper towels. 

They turned out so great!  They have an aged look to them with a slight brown tint, which makes them perfect for stamping vintage images!  I hope you give it a try too!
