Shabby Floral Duck Tape Luggage Tags
The summer is waning, but there is still time for one last getaway trip. We are going on a family vacation to a national softball tournament later this month, but I won’t need any luggage tags for that trip. However, my husband and I are flying to The Windy City in September, so in preparation for that adventure, I decided to create some Shabby Floral Luggage Tags with Duck Tape. I’ve always loved Shabby Chic decor. It never goes out of style, in my opinion. Our Walmart had some really nice Duck Tape patterns on sale for 75 cents each, and one of the patterns was a gorgeous black Shabby Floral. I also had a few chalk board ornaments left over from Christmas-I use them for so many different projects. I have been inspired by the creative Washi Tape and Duck Tape projects of my fellow bloggers, and thought I might give that medium a try. It took about 10 minutes to make five, not counting a first-time 5 minute practice run.
- floral Duck Tape
- mini chalk board ornaments
- address labels and stickers
- coordinating rubber bands
- scissors (not pictured)
Cut a strip of Duck Tape smaller than the width of the chalk board.
Place your Duck Tape so that half of it is on the bottom of the chalk board. Leave the other half hanging off.
Pull it tightly around the bottom of the chalk board, and smooth the Duck Tape nicely on the other side.
Cut three more strips of tape a little bit shorter than the length of the straight part of the chalk board side.
Center two of the Duck Tape pieces with the hole at the top of the chalk board, just below the area where the board’s edge curves. Make sure the tape only hangs over at the sides; not at the bottom. You already finished the bottom edge in the last step.
Fold the Duck Tape over tightly onto the back side.
Place the remaining piece of Duck Tape over the uncovered space, lining up the edges at the top with the other pieces of tape.
Slip a coordinating rubber band into the ornaments hanger. I looped mine through the zipper of my carry-on, to make sure it worked.
Place an address label and embellishment stickers on your luggage tag. The phrases on the little stickers that came with our address labels were perfect for the shabby floral theme! I lined my address label with the hole in the top of the chalk board ornament. I didn’t want to publish my address online, so I covered my label with the Duck Tape sticker in the picture below.
As a finishing touch, I plan to add Modge Podge tonight, to help the stickers adhere, and to protect the luggage tags from the rain. Watered-down Elmers Glue would serve the same purpose. I hope you enjoyed this post! Drop me a line if you’ve ever made your own luggage tags!
