These are so lovely!  The color combinations are great...and sequins & beads, to boot!  They look like something I would buy from a little artsy crafty boutique... very well put together, I am impressed Cheesy

Thanks again.
i actuall thought so too, sweets4ever, that they, "look like something I would buy from a little artsy crafty boutique."
my next step is too fingure out a way to make them more sturdy so that they'd actually hold up when going through baggage claim.

Great (crafting) minds, think alike!

Hmm... yes.. how to make the sturdy... baggage claims can be pretty rough!

You can use them as handbag charms instead, and replace the adress with some nice greatngs in case you loose your bag and someone else finds it...

Handbag charms wouldn't have to go throght as much beatings as a luggage tag...

Once I got this lovely red leather luggage tags, and they where really strapped tight on to the bag, and when I was to pick the bag up of the place i put it on the train, someone had unsrtrapped it from my bag...

there are strange people everywhere

barring theivery, to protect the lovely, lovely tags, i bet you could sew small clear vinyl pouches to just put around them...then, once this trip is done, you can take them out of the pouches and they are free to be out in the world again...

actually when i did use it i just hung it from my caryy-on bag, figuring if i lost it or something, it'd have my name and stuff on it. plus, it looked really cute--especially when my friends had thier matching ones on thier carry-on bags! hee.hee.

yeah, i was thinking of this too, well after i'd made them, so perhaps next time. it's a good idea!
