    Ok I want to do my own luggage tags for everyone but I've hit a dead end. I managed to find badge holders on ebay but I can't seem to find the plastic straps that some of the other girls have used. I think Amazon and Staples were suggested but they don't have them for Canada. Does anyone know where I can find something in Canada so these tags can be attached to the luggage? Any ideas are welcome. Thanks!!!!

      if you haven't bought the actual tags yet, just go to dollarama and pics these up for a 1$ for 5 tags!

      I simply found an image I liked (I've actually uploaded this image to this site. Search for "clipart") used photoshop to add some text, and then sized it to be right size, and copy and pasted it a bunch of times onto a 8x11 word document, then I had it printed in color at staples (as I don't have a color printer). Worked great and was able to make a lot of tags for cheap.

        I'm making luggage tags as well. I know some US companies will deliver to Canada, but I was just going to get the badge holders and make the straps with ribbon in our wedding colours. Maybe that's something you can try as well?

          Or use clear gimp or boondoggle....you remember that plastic lacing we used to use to make frienship bracelets and key chains as kids? It is sturdy...and what I am using. Just tie a knot in one end.

            Thanks for the ideas ladies. Since I've already bought the badge holders I have to use them and the gimp is a great idea. Never thought of that. I was looking for those coil keychain holders too but I can't find them at any of the dollar stores around me. I'm sure I'll find something that isn't too hard to do or hard on the wallet.

            Just wish places would either ship to Canada or wouldn't charge so much for shipping!

              Are you planning on giving these luggage tags to all of your guests prior to leaving for Mexico?

                My plan was to give them out with a "to pack" list and with all the travel info well before we leave. I'll be mailing the same package to the few of my guests that will be coming in from other provinces. I'm trying to spread out my DIY projects so this one will be done before my OOT bag projects are needing to be done.
