    Yay! After much searching and trial and error, I finally came up with a solution to my luggage tag issues! I had such a hard time finding something that looked nice without being unreasonably expensive. I tried the clear luggage tags from Oriental Trading (like $4.99 for 10), but they are hard plastic, came already scratched up, and didn't seem like they'd stay together well. Then I tried laminating business card sized cardstock- just didn't work well.

    I finally ended up buying clear vertical badge holders from OfficeMax for $4.59 for 12, which was a good price for anything clear and with a pocket of any sort, compared to what I've found. They are 3 1/4 in by 2 1/2 in.

    I used two layers of cardstock, one for the backing (metallic red), and one to affix the label to. I used the clear Avery labels that are 2x4 (also using these for my luminarias), the price was $22.00 for 250 labels. I cut them down to size and affixed the clear printed label to the metallic champage card stock.

    I'm really happy with the results! The names are printed in all black. I just covered my last name and address for privacy! lol

          Aww, thanks girls. I forgot to add that I'm going to be sending these out with my welcome letters about 2 weeks before the wedding. I'm sending three tags per person, which will be enough for 2 pieces of luggage and a carryon- I figured that was probably an average amount of luggage, don't you think?

          I also have to give credit to Aylee for the monogram...

                  I'm going to be sending a long welcome letter with detailed info on transportation, entertainment, navigating the airport and to the hotel, so I will mail it all in a manilla envelope that I'm sure I'll decorate up somehow...

                    Sarah I also will be requesting two for myself and one for my pooch Bentley. Seriously those look great! Aylee is so good at what she does, the monogram looks great. And I love the color. You did such a good job with this, you seriously do need to write a DW book with all DIY.
