    I have seen luggage tags all over this forum so thanks for all the inspiration, ladies! I made my luggage tags by creating a design and uploading it to a business card on Vistaprint. 


    I bought cheap ID Badge Holders from Speacialst ID for only .28 cents/badge http://www.specialis...p/1820-1050.htm


    I used ribbon that I bought at Micahel's on sale for 1.00 to use as the "handle" to attach to your bag.


    Here is my design:





    Once my "business cards" arrived, I put the luggage tags together and voila!:





    I plan to send these out to my guests a month or so before the wedding to get them excited and of course, for them to use on their luggage! I also plan to send a CD of fun music to get them pumped up and a letter or brochure with important travel info. 


    Happy Planning, ladies! I'd love to see your projects. :)

    Let me know if you have any questions!

          Do you have an editable template for your design? Were you able to get the free business cards or since you had your own design you had to purchase the cards?

              Thank you girls. Since I had my own design they were not free BUT they were literally almost free... I bought a Groupon for vistaprint (I can't remember the exact numbers but it was really cheap and worth a lot... Something like $12 for $24 worth) then I was able to combine that with an online coupon code for 50% off. In the end I ordered 2 sets of business cards (one set was my luggage tags and the other was my key/tip money holder) and a set of postcards and my total was 2.24 plus shipping. It was like crazy how cheap it came out to. As far as a template- unfortunately I do not have one. I dabble in graphic design but have not yet splurged on a program like photoshop so the good news is you could do your own just like I did! I use an online editor called pic monkey. It's picmonkey.com. It's pretty simple and great for beginners. :)
