Once you get on the way you like it, put your cursor in an area that doesn't have anything in it - like off the page or something. Then click and hold your mouse button down and draw a box (it will show you) around all of your design elements. When you release the button everything will be highlighted. Then right click and hit copy. (Sometimes it resets and only picks up one of the design elements when you right click. If this happens draw the box again and when you right click do it over one of the markers - the little tiny boxes on the corners of things, or on the gray border of a text box.)
Once you've copied it, hit paste special and paste it as a picture - a .gif or an enhanced metafile are easiest. Then you can copy and paste that to your heart's content - the layout will be constant and you're ready to go.
Hope that helps!

I purchased badge holders and luggage straps from Amazon. (I like going thru Amazon as I feel I have some recourse should anything go wrong with the small vendors.) There are several sellers that offer both - you save on shipping that way. I used the following two products:
1. Advantus 75451 Proximity Badge Holders - Vertical, 2-3/8x3-3/8, clear. They come 50 to a pack.
2. Sparco Plastic Straps for Luggage Tags - SPR01160. They come 100 to a box.
I found 4 sellers that sold both, and with shipping here was the cost:
1. Plex Supply - $28.82
2. Shoplet - $29.45
3. My Office Source - $30.53
4. The Factory Depot - $33.19
You have to do some poking around to find them - but if you use the searches "Proximity Badge Holder" (be sure to buy the verticals ones) and "Plastic Straps for Luggage Tags", you'll find the products, then just click the "12 available new/used from..." link and it will bring you to the sellers.
Here are what the straps and holders look like empty:
And here are the inserts I made - I just used leftover cardstock from my boarding passes:
I found that running a letter opener across the holders made it much easier to put the inserts in without bending the corners.
I've included the template for the inserts. I left the goofy "luggage tag" around the outside edge because it's FI's favorite part - it's in the Maiandra GD font, and the little trees are in Tropicana BV. If you don't have both they are on DaFont.com, but they will help you see better.
Print them double sided - at least on my printer, they line up perfectly.
PS - if you did the math, then you recognize that I've got a bunch of the loops leftover - for the sake of my late RSVP-ers, assume I've got 30. If you want them, they are yours for the cost of shipping. PM me if you want them.
