Handpainted Luggage Tags
After coming off a flight when travelling, have you ever struggled to work out which bag was yours on the luggage carousel? I certainly have. However, like many other travellers I've discovered that the way to solve this dilemma is to personalise my bags in some way, so they're not so easily confused with lookalikes. A bright-coloured ribbon or quirky name label provides bags with a touch of individuality and ensures that they don't get confused with those of a stranger.
These simple luggage tags are simple, easy and affordable to make. What's even better, there's no right or wrong to make them. In the following method, I've mainly used acrylic paints as they're brightly-coloured and hard-wearing. Alternatively, you could use collage or decoupage, and then seal your creation with a water-based varnish. Scrap-booking decorations such as rhinestones or pretty fabric flowers could also be used to further embellish your tags. The possibilities are endless and you're only limited by your imagination.
The small wooden medallions that I've used for this activity were purchased very cheaply from my local hardware store. However, you can probably buy similar products from craft shops and bargain stores, or even make your own.
