No-Sew Project: DIY Luggage Tag

A fun summer craft that’s functional, too.

If you’ll be traveling this summer, make sure you’ve got a luggage tag or two handy to identify your bags. This is an easy craft project that comes together quickly using basic supplies and fabric scraps. Add a special finishing touch: personalize your tag with Dritz iron-on lettering. Great for backpacks and summer camp gear, too.
