Making Primitive Tags (DIY)







I needed some "prim art" tags for price display ...and normal stickers just didn't cut it. I decided to use some shipping tags and "oldy" them up a bit.
 This is what I did:



1. Cold coffee + bowl + tags= soak for 30 min or so.










2. Sprinkle Cinnamon over the tags and mash it in with your finger a bit. Focus around the edges.




3. Bake in oven at 200 degrees F  for about 10 minutes.
They come out smelling great, a bit bendy-but that is taken care of once artwork is applied with Mod Podge. OR put them in a book and let them sit over night to straighten out. Done.





Embellish as desired. ♥
I Mod Podged photos and bits from around my craft room, and stamped too. These are still wet, but MP dries clear.
