So, this is where you'll need to begin:
Search high and low for a brown paper bag--you must have one somewhere! Mine, pictured here, has already gone through one round of tag making.
After the two sides have been glued together, cut small pieces of scrap paper to fit the brown paper back piece. I use scrap craft paper (the same paper so detested!), measuring and cutting accordingly.
Apply the scrap layer to the brown paper base so that you have a nice, little border. Use a hole punch to allow you to thread ribbon or attach twine to the tag.
Use a marker or rubber stamp to personalize the tag.
Thread ribbon through hole and attach to the gift. Twine is also perfect for a more rustic, organic feel.
Here's to a simple tag fix that's much more personalized than anything you could buy at the store!
