Antique German book page - used to make a simple tag.

Antique paper
Cardstock paper - acid free (light brown)
Tag punch, round punch (1/2") and a single hole punch (small).
Bakers twine (black)
Washi tape (black lace design)
Glue - or xyron machine

Use tag punch to punch identical shapes from antique paper and cardstock paper. Punch a round shape from the cardstock paper.
Glue the cardstock tag and small circle shape, or run it through your xyron machine to glue. (As your antique paper may be fragile, it's better to glue the cardstock.)
Carefully adhere the antique paper tag shape onto the glued cardstock. Smooth it down. Add the cardstock circle to the top of the tag, as shown in the photo. Punch a hole through the middle of this circle with your single, small hole punch.
Use twine or ribbon to finish off the tag. Cut a length, knotting the 2 ends together. Feed the bottom of the loop through the hole and pull the twine length back, through the bottom of the loop (see photo).
Cut washi tape the width of the tag, and adhere to the bottom are on the tag.
