Primitive Valentine Tess Tag By Gabrielle Madsen

To make your primitive tag:
Add the following ingredients to 1 cup hot water; 4 TBLSP each  of coffee granules (instant) and Vanilla extract.  ¼ tsp cinnamon optional.  Add more coffee crystals as desired to darken.  I  Fragrance is purely optional but apple pie scent is fun.    Soak manila shipping tags for about 30 or so minutes.  Drain and dry as desired.   A warm iron on low will flatten warped tags.
The tag shown has a very delightful fragrance of chocolate, coffee and just a little hint of cinnamon and apple pie ;o}  This tag is not made from the recipe supplied. 
The background was stamped with Purely Pomegranate ink SU using  Basic Grey flourish stamps.  The word love (stamp unknown) was stamped with Black Staz On ink. 
A clear tape transparency was created from the Black ‘n White Paper stamp of Tess # 208 and attached over the inked background.  Various ribbons, trims, brass colored wing, heart stamped onto music paper and glittered star and stamped paper button were all attached as indicated.
