Going Places Luggage and Tag



Hi! Look at what's now available at PaperAddiction.com When I saw these miniature suitcases I knew I had to have them. I had a few ideas what I would use them for and this isn't actually what first came to mind, but I love it. I created a luggage tag...this one is for me, but wouldn't it be fun to make several to give to friends or relatives going on a trip. How about a little graduation gift. Endless possibilities!




These little suitcases measure 4 1/2 x 3 1/8 x 1 3/4. They are so small and cute I can hardly stand it:)


The tag measures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4. I made the charm from the My Favorite Things set called Going Places, with Shrinky Dinks. I haven't ever used them for stamping before (the last time I played with them I was 12:) and I LOVE it. I feel like a little girl again. I stamped onto the Shrinky Dinks with brown Staz-on and colored it with Copic Markers. I printed my name and info on the cardstock and trimmed it to fit on the brown cardstock. I cut another piece of cardstock for the reverse side of the tag and added the plane and the sentiment, Going Places to it. I stitched around the edges and adhered both sides to the brown tag. I then laminated the tag and punched a hole with my Crop-a-Dile and added the charm with a small chain. I need to plan a trip using my new luggage tag:)



Don't forget about the AMAZING blog candy I am giving away in the last post. Please show a little love and leave a comment for it:) (leave the comment on the last post please if you want to try for it)


Thanks for stamping by!
