DIY Coffee Stained Business Cards/Hang Tags


The only color paper left at the fair trade store was white. I reluctantly purchased the paper to make business cards and hang tags, but thought my finished cards looked too bland. After doing some searching and coming across Mint Design's post on how to ink dye business cards(their finished product can be seen Here), I knew I had to try it! Lacking the ink, I turned to my trusty espresso machine!

DIY: Rope Bowl

diy rope bowl
I have quite a love for WWII military, and this bowl fits perfectly into that love being made out of a 1940s Army tent rope.  This bowl was so easy to make and perfect for storing my little trinkets that I always tend to lose.

DIY Cowl Scarf

At recent holiday craft fairs I have been selling some very very lovely cowl scarves that I made out of vintage square scarves. They are so easy and so comfortable, I can't keep it to myself any longer!

DIY: Vintage Inspired Hang Tags

DIY vintage hang tags

I have had a couple people ask me how I make my hang tags, so I decided to let all my secrets out! I use mine as product tags, but they would also work well as gift tags or even unique business cards!
