DIY Luggage Tags

I made this DIY luggage tag template that can be used for a no-sew project or sewing project depending on what material you chose to use.

I made this luggage tag with faux leather and bonded fabric which can easily be sewn. I’m just not as handy with a sewing machine and didn’t have the right color thread so I decided on gluing it together instead.

I actually saw the original at Anthropology and decided I could make my own. I love the playfulness of the animal print with bright colors. Not only are they useful but they are easy to spot (pun intended) at the baggage claim.

You can use any leather, faux leather and/or bonded fabric to make this tag. I used snap enclosures but you could alter the design to not need them.

I will probably also eventually add a little HTV monogram to personalize it. These make for great gifts as well.

Materials for DIY Luggage Tags

Leather/Faux Leather/Bonded Fabric – I actually used this faux leather set that came with the animal print bonded fabric. You need about a 6″x8″ piece to make a single tag.

Glue – I used a hot glue gun. E6000 works as well.

Mylar – Any clear plastic works. I just used mylar sheets for this.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

You could also cut this by hand.

    How make a DIY luggage tags – no sew method

    Step 1: Cut the leather using the luggage tag pattern templates

    I cut mine using my Cricut. I used the rotary blade with a standard grip mat with the smoothest side of the material facing down. Since this design is symmetrical, there is no need to mirror the image.

    If you need to cut this with a blade, I would recommend using the strong grip mat.

    Step 2: Glue the layers together

    I start with the piece with the flap and glue the mylar sheet onto the underside.

    I then glue the leopard print piece onto the mylar/tan assembly. Be sure to leave the base unglued so you can slip paper in there later.

    Step 3: Add the snap enclosures

    There’s probably a gazillion different way to fasten the enclosures but I just though snap buttons were the easiest.

    Step 4: Add you address to the DIY tag

    Or you can slip in your business card.
