In the past, I created metal hang tags that were perfect and created from found thin metal circles with drilled holes.

Today I'm going for the distressed look.

I knew they'd make easy to make numbered hang tags and the thick aluminum was too nice to not let shine through.

A little white spray paint, some distressing, add a number, & give it a good thick coat of clear sealer.

And you've got yourself some totally cool
numbered hang tags.
