How to make an easy luggage tag, fun kid's craft




Whenever you go anywhere and fly everyone seems to have the same color luggage.  You can make a personalized easy luggage tag that sets your luggage apart from the crowd. The tag is big enough to be noticed but is also very lightweight.

This is a perfect project for kids, girls scout groups, vacation Bible school and so much more.  You make this luggage tag from foam door hangers that are very inexpensive.  It's a great way to use up all those extra little foam shapes that the kids may have not used up yet too! 

So let’s get started!


Materials:

2 foam door hangers in contrasting colors

Disappearing marker

Hole punch or nail, scissors

Tacky craft glue

Sharpie marker 

16” of flexible plastic string (used for beading)

Small foam shapes to fit in the center hole


Easy luggage tag


1)   Choose two contrasting colors of foam door hangers.  Measure 3 inches from the bottom of one door hanger marking with a disappearing marker and cut off. Do the same with the other door hanger except you will measure from the top  (the end with the hole) and cut off. 



2)   Place them together and you will have a recessed area on one end.  You will not be putting any glue in the recessed area. 


3)   Using a large hole punch or simply poke a hole with a nail in the center of the non-door hole area.



4)   Line up both side together so that the hole you punched is in the center of the door hole.  (This is the top of your tag)
  
5)   Spread some tacky glue onto the side with the door hole. Press together and let dry.  Trim the corners at an angle.


6)   Glue foam shapes in the recessed door hole areas if desired or just leave as is.   Attach a piece of flexible plastic string through the punched hole and attach to luggage.  Use the Sharpie marker to label with name and address.
