I can never get enough coffee stained tags. Easy peasy, fast and easy!
I start with leftover coffee from the coffee pot.
Add a little vanilla extract and a couple of tablespoons of instant coffee.
I used three different sizes of tags that I pick up at the office supply store.
I like to scrunch them up a bit before placing them in the coffee pot.
I add about 10 tags at a time to the coffee pot and let them soak for about 3-4 minutes.
Remove the tags with tongs and lay flat on paper toweling or a tea towel.
After I lay them out flat I sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top and rub it in with my finger. I love the smell and the texture it gives on the tags. I let them sit overnight and in the morning I have beautiful vintage tags ready to go for my projects!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres.
