Aging Tags

I can't remember where I saw this tip 
but thought it was a good one

Take a regular tag
soak it in a water bath with coffee crystals

once it has soaked up enough of the color
take it out and rub some crystals
on it
so the color will varigate

rinse pat excessive water off
and allow to dry at room temp

 I also did it with
instant tea
white on the left
gold right

After they had dried I ironed them flat

then decorated
