3-D Luggage Tags

Getting ready for a big family trip? You might feel like you don't have enough time to get everything done -- the kids, on the other hand, will feel like time has slowed to a crawl.

Have them pass the time by making their own 3D luggage tags for the trip.

  • Cookie Cutters
  • Sheets of craft foam in assorted colors
  • Scissors
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Pop Up Glue Dots®
  • Craft Glue Dots®
  • Hole punch
  • Card stock

Step 1: Trace a cookie cutter on a sheet of craft foam.

Step 2: Cut the shape out along the line.



Step 3: Cut smaller letters or shapes out of a different color of craft foam -- I cut them freehand, but you can use a die-cut shape punch or trace shapes from stencils.


Step 4: Press the back of the smaller cutouts to a Pop Up Glue Dot and remove it from the backing. Use two Pop Up Glue Dots, if necessary, to give it an even "pop."

Step 5: Press the small cutouts onto the larger cutouts as desired.


Step 6: Punch a hole in the finished foam shape to turn it into a luggage tag. Take a 10-inch piece of ribbon or cord and tie the ends together. Pull an end of the loop through the hole, then pull the other end through the hole and pull through gently to secure.

Step 7: Cut a piece of card stock to fit on the back of the luggage tag without being seen from the front. Write the name and address on it, and attach it with Craft Glue Dots.
