Luggage tag how to?

I've seen references to making your own Disney luggage tags, but how do you make them sturdy enough to actually use? Do you just get a regular luggage tag and replace the blah form with a Disney-themed one, or is there some other way that I'm missing?

Thanks!

I know I have made tags for the strollers using plastic tags I bought at Walmart the kind you put your picture in then peel off the paper and they seal. They have lasted a few trips.

I used tags from the luggage section @ target. They peel back and laminate. Think there were 4 per package. Scrapbook paper and stickers on the front and info on the back. They came out cute and were simple to make.

The craft section at many stores carry peel and stick make it yourself luggage tags. I have used these and they have lasted since 2008 for many many trips, including international trips. I went to Home Depot and picked out the Disney Paint Samples which are Mickey heads, peeled the heads off of the backing, pasted them together and written our info with a calligraphy pen on both sides. Once dry I put the Mickey head inside the peel and stick, seal it and voila it's done! I use a different color for each person in the family. They make finding your luggage a little easier too!

Thank you, everyone! I'm going out today to try to find some of the tag blanks you've described. Thanks!

I have also used the Home Depot paint samples they work out very well I wrote on ours, and laminated them together, each of us picking our perspective color. I put a piece of cardboard between mine as well, just for extra sturdiness. When we had a stroller I used our Disney Print Shop and also made our own stroller identification, for the top of the handle in plain sight, back of the stroller, and also the basket, ( wasn't going to loose the wheels)!!!
