Sharing is Grand!

Sharing Work &,Space in this cute little shop (Not Too Shabby) in Historic Folsom, I love to use the old looking vintage tags, I would let them soak all day to get the right brown tint, then let dry out all day as well, a bit lengthy.A Good Friend of mine shared some advice she had recieved from Marilyn of (Marilyn, Marilyn, Marilyn) the Blogger Queen and a regular at Alameda (antiques by the bay). I gave her How To, a try and it worked fantasitcly and looked amazing too.So i thought i would be a gem and share also (spreading the creative spirit).1)you can buy the tags at Office Depot for about $5 for 100 2) then you soak them in a large container (or boil them in a large pot) i used tupperware and about 4-6 tea bags & i microwaved them all for 3 min. or so.3) then you take out and lay flat on cookie sheet (keeping all string on top) and bake for about 5-8 min. on 375 degrees.4) let cool for a few minutes, and then add the v cut if you desire and there you go. Cute looking Vintage Tags, and in a quarter of the time of what i was doing..
Thank You Marilyn for Sharing your brilliant idea..
