{think cute designs} let’s label – luggage tags for both little boys & little girls!

it seems hard to believe that the start of a new school year is just around the corner!  it’s time to start shopping for new school supplies and new school clothes. a new school year also means new backpacks and lunchboxes. with that in mind, we have created a fun collection of luggage tags.  the tags are divided into boy and girl categories, but as you will see they can be intermixed.  each luggage tag allows you to FILL-IN your little scholar’s information.  in fact, after hearing from a LM friend that having the option to add text to the back of each tag would be ideal – we added that as well. being able to add additional text to the back of each tag each set comes with two coordinating designs. i can think of so many fun ways to use these tags.  you can label school supplies, a homework and paperwork station, after-school snacks and so much more.  of course, laminating the tags will ensure that they survive the school year![paragraph split]i purchased my laminating pouches from office depot, but they can also be purchased online from amazon. the fold over luggage tags measure {including trim area} 3.5 x 2 inches.  here is a little “tip” for creating your tags. each sheet that you print includes trim marks. you will also notice that there are score marks (indicated by dotted lines) in the middle of each sheet. before cutting out the tags, score them first and then trim the tags. this will help to ensure nice straight edges. i also suggest that if you plan to laminate the tags, that you use PLAIN COPY paper for printing.  i found that if the paper was too heavy, that my personal laminating machine didn’t seal the pouches completely.

as mentioned early in the post, you will want to score the tags along the dotted line and then trim the cards using the trim marks.  this will help to ensure even tags and happy little mommas!
