    Hey ladies:

    I just finished my 60 luggage tags for under $10!

    How?

    As I said in the 10 Budgeting Tips thread, the Dollarstore is your best friend!

    I live in Toronto, so I went to our local Dollarama. They have self-laminating CARD holders, not the luggage tags, 10 in a package for a dollar. The luggage tags come five in a package, so this is more bang for your buck! So I bought 6 packages of those.

    I then borrowed a template from this forum. (aside: I really have to thank the girls that have posted their templates here...it helps us all so much!)

    I chose a photo from Microsoft Office Online...they have millions of brightly coloured clip art to choose from.

    I pasted the picture in the template and added our personal info.

    For the back, I copied everyone's address from our invitations list. The font is Copperplate Gothic in Word.

    Around the edge, I have scrolled " Bless this Bag"...we pray all luggage arrives...and arrives in good condition!

    I printed it on card stock, cut it out and sealed it into the laminating pouch.

    Lastly, for the strap, I punched a hole in the card and used clear gimp or boondoggle...(that's what one lady at a store in Buffalo called it), laced it through and tied a knot.

    Voila! Instant luggage tags!

    FI loves them and you cannot beat that cost!

    6 pkgs. self laminating card holders: $ 6.00
    White cardstock : 12 sheets @ 10 cents a sheet: $ 1.20
    Clear gimp: 3 packages at .79 cents a pks.: $2.40

    60 tags for Under $10!

    And the result:

    Let me see if I can post this.....

    Hmmm...give me a minute...

        What a great idea. Going to think seriously of doing it that way as well! Can't beat the price. Thanks for sharing.

                    And here they are! Works out to $0.16 cents a tag!

                    Oh, and I used Becks' template.
