Easy Vintage Style Luggage Tag Card


There are times when you something in inspires you from out of nowhere? Recently, I went on a trip on a old steam train and the old suitcases at the railway station inspired me to recreate this vintage luggage tag card.

Really easy to make and the letters to rub on can be bought from any stationery or craft shop.


You Will Need  -

1  luggage tag (I bought mine from the post office)
1 cream card to fit
20cm cream organza ribbon
Flower wallpaper swatch (your local DIY stores are great for samples)
Crafting glue
1 gold pen
Sequins (about 5)
Letraset or other self rub off black lettering

Go Create!

1. Cut a piece of your wallpaper flower out and stick it to your luggage tag.
2. Take your gold pen and highlight part of your flower or leaves.
3. Stick onto your cream card.
4. When dry rub on your Letraset text onto your tag. I made sure the letters would fit first by measuring up the space and letters. Simply place the Letraset on the card and gently rub until the letter is off the front paper.
5. Take your sequins and stick onto the card and tag to make the card balanced.
6. Add your ribbon to the card.

Simple little card and inspired by a day at an old fashioned railway!
