How To Laminate a Name Tag

A laminated luggage tag is a great way to identify your belongings wherever you go. Not only is a great way for you to add a personal touch to a piece of luggage without it becoming expensive, it is a great way to save some money when doing other functions.

There are a few items that you are going to need to create the perfect luggage tag. You are going to need a piece of card stock in the color of your choice, self laminating sheets, scissors, hole punch, ribbon, yarn or string, and anything that you want to use to decorate the name tag with.

  1. Take the card stock and cut it the size that you would like your luggage tag to be. Then you are going to hand write your information or print it from your printer. If you decide to print it through your printer, you can add the decorations before you print it off. Play around with the design to get it the way you would like it.
  2. Once you have cut the luggage tag the size that you would like from the card stock and printed your information on the luggage tag. Decorate it in any way that you would like. Be creative this is going to show off your personality before someone meets you, and it will make you feel great that you have a laminated luggage tag that is as unique as you are.
  3. When you are finished printing your information and decorating your name tag, get a laminating sheet and follow the instructions to use the sheet properly. This information should be on the back of the package or on a sheet on the inside of the package.
  4. After you have finished putting the laminating sheet onto your name tag, take the hole punch and punch a few holes about ½ an inch from the edge of the laminate tag. Be sure not to punch the holes on top of the card stock. If you punch holes on the card stock, your laminated luggage tag will get wet and your information will not be legible for other people to read or see.
  5. Once you get the holes punched into the laminated part of the luggage tag, secure it with the ribbon, yarn, or string to your luggage. You are all finished making your personal laminated luggage tag.

This is a fun and easy project to do with children. Not only will it help them to learn their information, but also it is a great way to spend some time with your child. A laminated luggage tag is a great way for you and your child to express yourself. Have fun making a laminated luggage name tag, be creative, and express yourself and your style.
