fun and simple {Luggage Tag}!

Hello there bloggie friends!  Did you guys get a chance to check out the Online Extravaganza that started yesterday?  It's definitely worth checking out if you haven't already.  For today, I've got a quick and easy project that would make a cute stocking stuffer or little gifts for co-workers.  It's a luggage tag I made using the Spice Cake DSP and the clear Decor Elements Vinyl sheets.  Isn't it cute?  What's nice about it is that the clear vinyl sheet has some weight on it and makes my Spice Cake DSP more durable by protecting it. 

Here's how I made it:
1. Cut one 4"x 4" piece Spice Cake DSP.
2. Die cut a letter of your choice (or any image that will cover up to 3"x3" of your 4"x4" paper) using a Vinyl sheet.  For this sample, I used a "D" for my little man, or for Diaper bag {heehee}.
3. Adhere the letter in the center of your 4"x4" DSP piece.
4. Cut 2 pieces of 4"x 4" clear Decor Elements vinyl sheet.
5. Adhere the clear vinyl sheets on the front and back of your DSP and use a bone folder to smooth over the top of the DSP to ensure it's adhered well.  This "laminates" your paper.
6. Using the Scallop Circles #2 die, place your DSP onto the larger scallop circle, with the letter face down. 
7. Run your laminated piece of paper thru the Big Shot.  Now you have a scallop circle tag.
7. Finish it off by punching a hole at the top with the Crop-a-dile, string through ribbon and you're DONE!

Here's a final look at my diaper bag:
Doesn't the tag look so cute on it?  Hope you like this fun and easy project!  Have a great day!
