Do you have travel plans for the summer? Sending kids off to camp? Maybe you’d just like to have something to identify all the different bags your family has accumulated? Then this is just the project for you.An inexpensive plastic luggage tag can be transformed with a little Mod Podge and fabric scraps.
Here’s all you need:
- Fabric Mod Podge and applicator
- Fabric scraps
- Inexpensive plastic luggage tags (these were purchased at Michael’s for $1)
- Wax paper, aluminium foil, or butcher paper to protect your work surface
- Craft knife
To make the tags, follow these simple steps:
- Apply Fabric Mod Podge to the right side of your fabric scraps and let dry completely.
- Remove the strap from the luggage tag and clean the surface of the tag. If necessary, use fine sandpaper or an emery board to lightly sand the surface. If the tag is slick, this will create a better surface for bonding.
- When the fabric scraps are dry, trace the tag’s outline onto the fabric. Cut out the tag shape.
- Apply fabric to tag using more Mod Podge.
- Apply one to two more coats of Mod Podge, drying completely between each coat.
- Trim the edges, if necessary, and the hole for the strap using a sharp craft knife.
- Add embellishments, if desired. Glitter glue can be used to accent designs in the fabric. Buttons can be Mod Podged. Use your imagination and go for it.
- Thread the strap through the hole and it’s ready to use!
And don’t forget about Amy’s new book, Mod Podge Rocks! She’s got a lot of fun projects in there as well as everything you need to know about Mod Podge.
