These super cute ( and useful! ) tags were made in 20 mins – including the drying time.
My parents are heading to CA to meet up with some MIDDLE SCHOOL friends of theirs ( this is a people over 50 weekend)! This means Gift making is in order. Donna and Ray are awesome people, but our families aren’t super close so I had to think of something generic but personal all at the same time. side note: utilitarian items are the ultimate ” I don’t know what you like, but I wanted to get you something” ( ie everyone could use a nice pen, comfy socks, paperweight. etc ). I knew wanted to contribute something nice, but I also wanted it to be personal. Naturally I pulled out my leather boxes ( yeah….its grown to like 3 different boxes ) and started in one some luggage tags ( I’m obsessed with these ^^). I used scraps from a “farm leather” scrap pack ( these are thicker and stiffer pieces – like use on boots or saddles ) which gave me a super sleek – dare I say professional? – finish. The farm leather is also sturdy enough to leave a pocket in the middle of the tags – so theses can actually be used as luggage tags! These will also work as bus pass holders or even as an emergency cash stash.
These turned out nicer than I expected, I’m super tempted to keep them ( LOL).
