I’m very excited to share with you another great craft project from super talented Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made! Cathe made this project using a vintage image from here at The Graphics Fairy, and turned it into the cutest luggage tag. She will be my guest blogger today, all of the photos, text and project instructions come from her blog.
Our family will be heading out on a vacation soon, so I dug up an old file I’d created years ago for luggage tags. You know how everyone’s suitcase looks the same as it turns the corner on the airport luggage carousel. It’s good to tie something distinguishing to your bag. The first time I used this graphic for tags I printed them on cardstock and laminated them with Scotch Bag Tags, which works great and can be found at a drug store chain and in office supply stores.
But today I changed them up a bit. I found a free old canning tag image on The Graphics Fairy and using my very weak Photoshop skills, erased the printing on the tags, lightened the background a bit and left the cool hole-reinforcement graphic, which I filled in the center to avoid any white area when hole punching later. (Ok, that was a VERY weak erase job, but when reducing and covering with text, it’s not noticeable at all.)
I hope you enjoyed this fun project today. Make sure you check out Cathe’s blog at Just Something I Made for this and other great tutorials!
