  4. Distress with sandpaper to achieve desired effect.
  5. Paint the wooden tag with Cocoa using the 1/2" flat brush.
  6. Sand the edge of the wooden tag.
  7. Choose a piece of scrapbook paper and make a copy of it. Put the copy in the paper feed tray of the printer and print the word "Bourbon" out in the font of your choice.
  8. Cut the word out into a circle and outline with a permanent marker.
  9. Glue the circle to the wooden tag.

HELPFUL HINTS

Add multiple coats as needed.

If your wooden tag doesn't have a hole, you will need to drill one. Pick a drill bit the size of the jute.
