handmade gift tags

February 19th | older posts

i had some fun with my vintage photos yesterday. i dipped some large manilla tags in leftover coffee (hate to waste coffee!) and i also dipped the corner of the photos in coffee to give them a blurred, watery edge. then i just stapled the photos onto tags and added a few embellishments. perfect for bookmarks or gift tags. i’m no scrapbooker, but i had fun!

tomorrow we are doing ‘free earring friday’ so check back for details!! have a great day!
