Vintage Brown Paper Gift Tags - The Gunny Sack

Hello everyone...I'm Tonia from The Gunny Sack and I am so excited to be at Sugar Bee Crafts today!  With the holidays on the way, there will be lots of gift giving.  I'm going to show you how to make some vintage looking gift tags to add to your gifts. 
Cut out (2) 8 1/2 x 11 pieces of paper from a brown paper bag.
Print these images onto the pieces of brown paper or make your own image sheet, if you prefer.  Just feed the pieces of brown paper into the printer the same way you would your regular paper.  You can either print them by clicking on the image to make it larger and printing them from there or by getting them here and here.
Glue the 2 pages wrong sides together.  Another option would be to print the tag wording in the reverse side of the paper but I had images on the back so I couldn't do that.
Cut out the tags and trim the corners by clipping at an angle or by using a corner rounder.  Ink the edges or draw lines on the tags.  Punch a hole in the top center of each tag and loop a piece of twine through the holes.
Now you have some vintage tags to add to your gifts that are so much cuter than what you can find at the store!
Thanks for having me as your guest today, Mandy!  I would love for all of you to stop by The Gunny Sack and check out some of my other holiday ideas like {Everything} In A Jar Gifts and Magazine Gift Bags.

Love how easy these are and that you used paper bags. I may accidentally forget to bring my reusable bags to the store next week! :o)
