{DIY baggage tags} with free printable!

It's summer! Our family has some big trips coming up in the next few months, and I wanted to create some fun and easy baggage tags for all of our luggage. When we fly, we usually leave our stroller and car seats at door of the plane, and then pick them up when we get off.  Tying a cute baggage tag around them will add one more step in an effort to making sure our stuff doesn't get lost!  I also wanted  needed a cute tag for my pink polka dot luggage, lol.

These tags will take less than 5 minutes to make, are super inexpensive, and are perfect on everything from kids' backpacks to strollers! Of course I went with a monogram, because I'm slightly obsessed.  :) 

 
 Here's how you can make your own!

SUPPLIES:
  • Scotch Self-Laminating Pouches, 2 15/16 x 3 15/16
  • PDF file, printed (see below)
  • Distress Ink
  • Ribbon
 I adore Scotch Self-Laminating Pouches, and I use them all the time. For around $3, you can get a pack of 6, which means you can make 6 tags for $3!  

DIRECTIONS:

1.  Choose the file that you'd like from the list below and print on to white cardstock.  I've created two different color schemes to choose from--pink & brown, and orange & blue, for all 26 letters of the alphabet.



2.  Cut out the monogram and dotted address lines in one long strip, and trim to fit inside the pouch.  Once it's to the size you need, fold it in half, so it looks like this: (I made mine on the opposite side, but it doesn't matter!)


3.  Write in your address and telephone number on the dotted lines. Distress all the edges with Distress Ink if you like! Remove the liner from the pouch, place your paper inside, and press firmly to seal.  If you haven't used these before, don't worry--they are super easy to use.  If you have a laminator, you could use it instead.


4.  Punch a hole in one corner of the tag, and tie it on to your luggage with ribbon.  Ribbon is a great way to distinguish your bag from another, and this way, you have both the ribbon and a baggage tag in one!



Here are the pdf files...just click to download!

I'm going to make some of these for my Mother in Law. She is the type who has just about everything so gettting her little "treats" is near impossible. She will FLIP over these though. She loves it when we make her handmade things... thanks!
