DIY Cute Custom Luggage Tags

I am consistently amazed at Amanda's ability to create such stunning and unique crafts that look detailed and complicated, yet are fairly simple and straight forward to make! And today she has wowed me again with these DIY luggage tags! In the quick and easy tutorial below Amanda teaches us how to make our own custom travel tags! I also love her ideas for variations on these and can already think of so many possibilities! Have fun with this one! I know I will!!

Hello Friends, happy Tuesday! !!! Today I am sharing with you a fun and easy way to make personalized labeled tags for all your traveling bags. 

To begin, I cut my styleboard paper to the size of the plastic sleeve, leaving a little extra space around the edge. I love using the double-sided pattern paper for projects like this.  If you do not have a laminator, don't worry; there is a self-seal option, which does not require a laminator. Once I had my paper cut, I used my typewriter to add my name and address.   This project would be great for labeling names on kids camp bags, beach bags, and even school backpacks. And again, if you don't have a typewriter another fun option would be to use mini stamp letters or even handwriting. 


Once you have your tags laminated (or self-sealed) use a hole punch to create a hole at the top of the tag. Once the hole has have been punched loop your favorite ribbon or lace through the hole and then tie onto your bag.  


These tags were so fun to make, and would make a fun afternoon project for all ages. Happy summer Travels!

    Hi Meredith,
    Typewriters are so fun right!!! This one actually works, and was a fun find at a antique store.

    These are so much nicer than the ready-made ones you can buy. I have a suggestion though for personalizing them even more: why not use old tickets and the likes for the backside of the tags? Then they will also become a memory for you on your new trips.
