How to hand age tags tutorial

Okay, so I have shared this one place and I've had a couple of people wanting to share it on their blog. That's totally find with me. However, I did notice that I haven't even uploaded it onto mine!!!! Am I crazy?! So here I am finally putting it all together for my own blog! TA DA! :) 

First you are going to want to cut your tag to the size that you want. For this tag, I  made it 2 inches by 3 inches





There ya' have it! Your stamped & hand aged hang tag! 
Mine is of a little deer. 

This technique is addicting, because now, I don't have anything that doesn't have this detail on it. Even if I do green paper, sometimes I will use a different shade of green ink to apply. 

Happy Scrappin', Stampin' and Craftin',

Thank you so much for sharing that technique. I have always wondered how they aged the tags. It looks so pretty!
