    Do you have a template for the luggage tags?

      So excited to show my save-the-dates off!  I designed (and redesigned and redesigned!) myself & somehow managed to pull it off... almost can't believe it!  I'm someone who is always full of amazing ideas for craft projects, then has quite a bit of trouble executing them.  In other words, my brain is more talented than my hands are! ;)  But this time I really did it! =)   DSCF9872.jpg   Started with sticker paper, magnet paper, yellow note cards, gold eyelets, & green ribbon.   DSCF9882.jpg   Designed a sticker for the outside of the card & did a luggage tag design for the magnets.  Printed out 20 of each, then promptly decided I hated the flamingo on the stickers and just couldn't live with it (hard to tell here, but it was clip art & looked low quality, at least to me).  Wish I'd trusted my gut before printing out all those stickers, but I decided it was better to reprint and waste the ink & paper than to be unhappy and less than spectacularly proud to send these out.   DSCF9897.jpg   Card with sticker applied.  Much happier with this flamingo!   DSCF9898.jpg   I cut slits in the card for the luggage tag.  The cards we've handed out so far, I've had to tell friends to lift the magnet out... hope the people who get them in the mail figure it out!   DSCF9899.jpg   std.jpg   This picture is from my scanner, so the tag looks a bit blurry, since it wouldn't lie completely flat in the scanner bed.  It's perfect in person, though.      So stinking proud!  We've been handing them out in person to local friends, and I'm beaming as they open them up!  I've stood in front of friends' fridges and just stared with a silly grin on my face. =D

      I love these...great job!!!

        Yes, but it's a psd file, so you'll need to use photoshop to work with it.

         

        I'll PM it to you since you don't have enough posts to see it here (hope you can see it through PM; not sure how that works).

          Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone!  I've been extremely busy since the wedding, so quite slow to respond, but I'm thankful for each & every comment!  Reminds me the hard work was worth it!

            Magnets are such a great idea. Definitely on my list for STDs.

                  These look fantastic! Quick question for clarification... were these magnet luggage tags meant to be applied to their actual luggage as well? Or as a save the date for the fridge? Either way they are adorable!
