    What you'll need:

    Hang tags, brads, hole punch (I used one with a smaller hole than the standard hole punch--you can also use a tapestry needle to punch a hole big enough for the brad), bone folder and string.

    Of course, you'll need some paper and a scissor to cut the paper.

    You'll need your sewing machine too if you plan on sewing down the middle. Use a leather needle to sew through all the paper layers.

    You can also sew the paper to the tag by hand or use a stapler.
