This morning my brother-in-law sent me a text.
It said "I have a Duct Tape idea for you..Luggage Tags"
I love that my family thinks of new and creative ideas for me when it comes to DT.
This time however I had already beat him to the punch.
I made these a couple of years ago, but realized I had never posted them on my blog.
So here it goes.
Supplies you will need:
Duct Tape (2 Colors)
Ribbon, String or a Zip Tie
Cut two strips of Duct Tape to 4 inches in lenghth
Put one on top of the other...
Sticky side to Sticky Side
Trim off any sticky if needed all the way around
Cut off the corners of one end for added detail..
or don't and leave it a rectangle shape
I prefer this shape, I think it looks nice
You could however round the edges as well
Cut out a piece of DT in a corresponding color to
3 inches x 1.25 inches
One that is light enough to see writing on it
Place it on the tag in the middle
Write your name, phone number and/or addy on the DT with a Sharpie
Punch a hole in the top with a hole punch
If you are using Ribbon or String cut a piece that is long enough to be folded in half, yet still able to go around a luggage handle
Tie a knot at one end
Put the loop end thru the hole
Wrap around luggage handle
Then put the knotted end thru the loop and pull
This is what the knot looks like
you can just tie it around the luggage handle too if you prefer
You can put a Zip Tie thru the hole and use that to wrap around the luggage
So easy, inexpensive, waterproof, and fun
This is also how I make my DT Bookmarks
These luggage tags are easy to spot when looking for your luggage after a flight
If you have kids traveling with you, use the kid DT's that are out
Such as Spiderman, Spongebob, Mario Bros, Hello Kitty
You could also add a Grommet to the hole that you punched out for added strength and durability.
Have a great weekend everyone!
