Beverage Tags

2:32:00 PM

There are some adorable beverage tags in the 
Ballard Catalog this month!

I can do that... a little different but the same... easy!

I had shims, I backed them thin end to fat end 
and glued them together...
This made the shims the same thickness all the way 
down the length.

I cut the shims into 6" pieces,
cut them tag shaped, and sanded the edges...

I drilled holes for the twine then sanded the holes...

I aged the wood with a vinegar/steel wool solution...

When the boards were dry I printed out some cute words...
sweet, lemonade, water & my favorite... over 21!

I drew the words freehand onto the wood trying to 
copy the font I printed out.... I used a Sharpie marker.
I gave each tag a spray of Poly to protect it then strung
a length of jute through the holes...

Mine have a very rustic look because I'm just that kind of girl!

These are an adorable idea because how many times do you have to tell people what's in the pitcher?!
Especially the Over 21 pitcher!

Now they'll know!

I'm looking forward to using these... every day!
