Thinking about making luggage tags for my 25 co-workers. Do people still use them and what do you all think of the idea? Anybody ever make them with or without using the luggage tag cartridge? Anybody have any other budget friendly ideas for office gifts using the cricut? Thanks for reading!

I make them! The brighter the better. No one else has tags like ours. BigGrin Our luggage is easy to find.

Any tag will work. Decorate one side any way you want. I print addresses just on paper and glue them on the other side.

Then I laminate them. I usually use a scrap of laminating material and double where the hole is for extra stength.

We travel quite a bit (fly) and so far they have held up really well.

We definitely use luggage tags when we travel by air.

SO, if you have friends who travel by air, I would say YES! I think it's required to have them, anyway.

IT'S AN EXCELLENT IDEA.....I had never thought of making special ones for friends and family.

Thanks for the thought!

Do you use your own machine for laminating? Is it a soft laminate or a harder one. I love the harder laminates, but I guess the softer laminate would work, too. I use the softer laminate (it's actually clear contact paper) on a lot of things, including our driver's licenses, Medicare cards, health cards, etc.! BUT, I really love the harder laminates.

I have a heat laminator so I guess it would be considered hard. Years ago Staples had amazing black Friday deals, like a free laminator after a rebate!

Maybe I should watch for a special....I think I have, though, and I never see one.

I do LOVE the harder protection.

I like this idea! I might try this. What do you use for the "strap"? Was thinking of trying to make it fold so the address isn't seen and have some kind of closure. How do you make them. Have watched a few youtube videos and checked pintrest but none are quite what I'm thinking of.

Or a gift box with a few chocolates in it.
I even use luggage tags on my cricut tote bag, my tool bag or anything else I take to a crop.
