Hey everyone, I had been eyeballing luggage tag save-the-dates on Etsy for a while, but I just couldn't get myself to spend the $2 for each one. Considering i would have needed 70, that would've been around $140!! With lots of patience, I came up with my own template, and the results were better than I imagined. The best part about it, all of the supplies (cardstock, rope, magnets, paper slicer, envelopes) cost around $70. 

 

Steps to DIY:

1.) Download template and input your info

2.) Print the image

3.) Scan that image  (there may be a way around this step, but I couldnt figure out how to copy an paste the entire image in order to print multiple tags per page)

4.) Open image in new document, re-size and copy/paste so that you can print 4 per page

5.) Print the image onto cardstock

6.) Decorate as you like!  (i used rope for a rustic feel,i also glued a tiny magnet onto the back so people can glue it to the fridge)

 

** Feel free to contact me with any questions, good luck!!

      very cute!

      unfortunately I won't be able to download for quite some more posts, haha.

      Where did you find the rope from?

      I'm contemplating whether to make the tags for my welcome bags out of material or just paper..

        Same here! Not exacltey sure how many points I need, but it's taking forever to get there....hopefully i'll have enough before I get married lol....  I got all of my supplies at ACMoore (a craft store in my area) , I found the rope in the bead making section..

         

        When and where are you guys getting married?
