Vintage Copper Tag

Recently I have been noticing the paper crafting boards I follow on Pinterest are pinning new types of tag art. From fun and funky to just beautiful, I am loving the variety of art being shown on these little “mini” canvases. I felt inspired to start working on more tags to build up a collection for gifts, paper embellishments and jewelry.
This tutorial is for a simple but lovely Vintage Copper Tag.

Stamp a sentiment on the small piece of card and cut to fit the tag. Rub the brown ink on the edges of the card stock to give it an aged look.

        1. Oh you got me there. I have a pile of cloth items to repair, finish sewing and cannibalize for fabric. However there seems to be an oddly growing pile of craft supplies in my way to the sewing table. 😛
