Happy Friday everyone, jenny from the gingerbread house back again. With the summer holidays looming for many I thought I would share a tutorial for kid-friendly luggage labels with you today. These are a great way to personalise luggage.

You will need:

Patterned tape
Sheet of card
Centre punch
String
Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 28PK - Delicate Letters (661040)

I decided on the shape and size of my luggage label and roughly cut a piece of card. I covered both sides with patterned tapes. As I made these labels for my children I chose patterns which I knew they would love - Star Wars and Frozen.

Once I had made the labels I found the letters I needed from the Delicate Letters set to cut out their names. The patterned tape is quite thick and sticky so I made sure to put it through my Sizzix machine twice. I used a Swann Morton scalpel to neaten any letters.

When I was happy with my cut out I used a centre punch to stamp a hole at one end.

I tied string through the hole to attach it to our bag. I made one for each of my children and they were really happy to see them. Now our bags should be easily identifiable when we jet off on our summer holidays.

Have a great weekend everyone!
