DIY Nautical Luggage Bag Tag

DSC_9377After making these Nautical themed beach bags for an event for our office incentive vacation.  I decided to make luggage tags after not having success in finding a tag that would work for the beach bag.  My son found these online from this site and all you needed to was add the name to the pre-formated nautical style tag.

Materials needed:

  • Computer and printer (colored ink)
  • cardstock
  • scissors
  • Thermal laminating pouches
  • Thermal laminator
  • Hole punch
  • Jute twine
