MASON JAR Stamped Hang Tags (Gift Tags & Price Tags)


I'm loving all these Mason Jar ideas I've seen lately. So thought I'd share a really popular one I like to do.
 (If you want them without making them, they are available in my Etsy shop, hint hint :-)

Yesterday I made up a bunch of new tags for my craft Booth #555.  I made both some plain ones and some primitive & grubby ones also. And of course, a lot of the Mason jar styles! These are really simple and require very little supplies.

Here is what you will need:
-I use Avery manilla, blank labels with re-enforced eyelet

but you can easily pick up a package of 100 white, Avery blank labels from Walmart for around $2.00
-1 bottle of brown craft paint from Walmart.  They run about .88 cents a bottle.
-1 paint brush
-A Stamp of your choice: Mason JAR (I bought mine on eBay around $11.00)
-blank ink stamp pad ($1.00 from Dollar Tree)
-String if you don't have any or don't want to use the white that comes with the Walmart ones, you can purchase bakers twine on eBay or from me on etsy :-)

OPTIONAL: 
First thing I did was to turn the plain, out of the box tags into the grubby, primitive type that we are seeing everywhere.  I DID DO THIS TO THE MIDDLE PHOTO AT THE TOP, but I like them both GRUBBY AND PLAIN!
 I used the most simple way I could think of to do this.  Not involving the coffee, tea or other mixtures that I've read about out there. 
I did this process in an earlier blog post, so I won't bore you again here. But if you need the details, here's the link:

Then I just got out my mason jar stamp and black in pad and hand stamped each one of them. 

Then all that was left to do was to attach some baker's twine to each one.  This was the hardest part. lol. I hate tedious things like this, but it must be done! lol

And BAM! They are done.

Wouldn't these be awesome attached to a cute, country gift. Maybe packaged in that plain ole' brown paper wrapping?  Or use them as gift tags on mason jar goodies in summer?  And best of all, wouldn't they be a cute little accessory in a country themed wedding?  As for me, I use them as price tags in my craft booth. 

I mean the uses could be endless.
