Luggage Tags

This week for Practical Scrappers I had to come up with a way to use tags.
Just after Christmas I was at a friend's house and she showed me the adorable Hello Kitty bags her girls had gotten from Santa.  The one drawback is that the bags are identical.  She mentioned that she wanted to get them each a luggage tag so they could tell them apart.  I offered my services and this is the result...

We had both agreed that a black and white photo would be cute on the tag but that they should be different in other ways.  Each tag started out as a plain chipboard tag.  I covered each in cardstock and then added ribbon embellishments. The ribbon I used was from my stash. Their names where then added in whimsical white letters.  I simply printed a small photo from my computer, matted Clare's in brown, and placed Sophie's onto a Kraft sticker. I then added a few gems for more girly flair.

I knew I didn't want the backs to be plain since you would be able to see both sides when the tags are attached to their bags.  I decided to add a quote about traveling because I hope these beautiful girls are able to see the world!  Sophie's says "The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page".  Clare's reads "I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list".

I finished each of the tags off by covering them with a coat of Mod Podge to make them more durable.  Unfortunately, the Mod Podge added a glare every time I tried to take a picture.  Next time I think I will take the picture before the Mod Podge.

I hope you like my tags, I hope the special little girls I am giving them to like them too....
