Make your own vintage enamel tags~


This is a fun and easy way to make those vintage looking (enamel ) tags from long ago~

I used key tags from the office supply store to make mine.  The stamp set is by Graphic45.  I stamped my number or image on the key tag using a Perfect Medium by Ranger and embossed it in black { by Ranger}, then I embossed a clear coat {Crystal Clear by Stampin' Up!} over that.  Very easy and gave the key tags dimension.




I then tied them on with twine or jute~what ever you have will be fine.  I love the look on the old Ball canning jars! I know they are a cheaters way to get the vintage look, but they have shine to them and that makes them look so cool!!!


This is an old coffee jar~so I put one on it too!!!
