I mentioned last week that we were headed to California for a wedding so of course we needed personalized luggage tags for our suitcases.
I realized this the night before we were leaving but I wasn’t worried because I had my handy dandy Sizzix Big Shot machine. I actually just got this bad boy and was super excited to use it for the first time.
I’m so happy that I can cut out letters easily with the Sizzix machine. Watch out because I can now personalize everything and I have so many fun ideas for this awesome machine.
So let’s get started on making some cute luggage tags. All you need are a few supplies:
- Sizzix Big Shot Machine
- Sizzix Bigz XL Die – Lemonade Capital Alphabet
- Sizzix Bigz Die – Badges
- scrapbook paper
- double-sided tape
- self-seal laminating sheets
- hole punch
- needle nose pliers
Step 1: Use your Sizzix Big Shot to cut out your letters and badges.
Step 2: Cut out your luggage tags. Use your double-sided tape to adhere your letters and badges to tags.
Step 3: Laminate each badge. Then punch a hole in the top of each luggage tag.
Step 4: Add keychain using needle nose pliers.
Step 5: Add name and address to back of tag. I used my label maker for this but you can just use a sharpie to write on the tag.
Now add your luggage tag to your suitcase and your ready for your trip.
I used keychains so I could loop it through both zippers to keep our suitcases from unzipping. You can also use ribbon if you want to just wrap it around the handle.
I have to tell you that it took me longer to figure out what paper I wanted to use than it actually took me to make my three luggage tags. That’s always the hardest part for me.
So have I inspired you to make your own personalized luggage tags? They would also make cute gift tags too. Also, if you haven’t used out the Sizzix Big Shot Machine yet, I highly recommend checking it out. This is the perfect machine for cutting paper, vinyl, fabric, and felt with it. You can even make jewelry with it.
Stay tuned for more fun craft projects using my new Sizzix Big Shot!
