What You'll Need:

1Start with the Stencil

Erica's template will get you started. Secure it to the back of your DoodlePad, and Doodle the outline, building up several layers of plastic to help your tag keep it's form.
Erica's Tip: You can always scale up or down depending on your own preferences and the size of your suitcases.
Fill in the inside of the stencil with FLEXY, with a clear viewing window. You can use a loose Doodled pattern like Erica, go more solid.
Erica's Tip: When Doodling with FLEXY, press down on your work as you go to make sure your filament strands bond together to create an even surface. Use contrasting colors for the edge and the inside to make your tag pop!

2Buttoned Up

Create a nice round button with a small added shank to easily attach to your tag. Secure the button to the strap using matching colors.

Erica's Tip: Be sure to secure the button well on both front and back as this is the area that's going to have the most stress and wear when you use your tag!

3Doodle Your Decal

Doodle a decoration for your luggage tag. Use Erica's palm tree, or make your own! Secure your decoration to the tag by first outlining it along the outer side, and also securing it from the back as well.
Erica's Tip: Doodle the decoration on paper, as it will stick a bit more and give you more control for finer details. 

4Flex and Fold

Fold the tag in half and weld the sides together to form a pocket for your personal information.

5Tag, You're It

Put your details inside your new tag, thread the strap through the holes, button it onto your case and you're ready to go!
