Luggage Tag

I have been wanting to do a luggage tag for a while, so I'm happy to show you this, my latest creation.

this is the front:

and that's the back!


It was so easy, I'm actually a little ashamed. I took a K&Co tag, and triple-embossed it with UTEE to make it smooth & protected. Then I traced the shape onto some Bazzil KIWI CRUSH (whoot whoot) paper. I put my vital stats on the green paper, covered it in packing tape (yes, the stuff you use for your boxes), and snipped out around the lines. Then I applied sheet adhesive to the back of the original tag and adhered the two tags together. I smooshed them for a while to make a good bond, and then trimmed any excess. Finally, I chose a coordinating grommet from my Cropodile II kit and munched it with my Cropodile II Big Bite. Then I punched out the middle hole and trimmed excess. I finalized it by adding a complementary ribbon.

I'll be taking a trip this weekend and I'll let you know how it holds up!
