    The hubby and I wanted something that our guests could actually use. So we decided on save the date luggage tags. My FH is a graphic and web designer, so he helped me put my "vision" on paper! We had what he designed printed and laminated. I ordered leatherette luggage tag loops from Amazon $6 x 25.

     

    I then started to wonder if people would misplace them since our wedding isn't until October. So I decided to create a magnet to attach the luggage tags to (2 luggage tags per couple). I created what I call a "button" (square piece on pic with our logo) using my FAVORITE machine ever...the Cricut!!

     

    We printed stickers with our logo and in small print wrote "Please use luggage tags with permanent marker and let dry for 15 minutes". We found thin square magnets at office depot. In between the magnet and the back of the "button" I hot glued a thin rope to form a loop. From the loop I hung the two luggage tags!! I added a lil bow for the completed look!

     

    Here are some pics of the process and the final one hanging from our fridge!

     

    Hope you ladies like it!

            I believe the printer used card stock paper. I had them laminated to make them durable. That's why I put in small print on the "button" for them to use permanent markers so it wont smudge,
