Tuesday Tutorial ~ Grungy Hang Tags

Well with the holidays right around the corner, and all of our craft projects that we need to get done, I thought I would share my recipe for Grungy, Grubby Hang Tags.  I like to add these to everything!  Bags of potpourri, dolls, Santas, presents, etc... 


Instant Coffee
2 cups hot water
Ground Spices ~ cinnamon, cloves, etc
wooden spoon
Hang Tags

In Bowl, combine coffee granules and 2 cups hot water.  Mix to combine, then add vanilla and spices to your liking.

Next get your hang tags, now you can keep them flat or you can crumple them up and flatten them out again, it's up to you.  I like to make them both ways, because I use them for different things.

Dip the tags into the spice mixture and allow to sort of drip dry.  Now, place them on a cookie sheet.  Turn oven on to 200 degrees, and place cookie sheet in.  Keep an eye on them, and remove when they are dry.

New get creative! Start stamping, drawing, cut and pasting... you decide!
