How do I make my own luggage tags?
Making your own Cricut luggage tags is a lot easier than you might think. Especially if you have a Cricut machine. All you need is an SVG file with the cut information.
To help you with this project, I have included a FREE SVG file at the end of this blog post.
I like to make luggage tags with faux leather since they are budget-friendly, look beautiful, and can last a long time.
How do you cut leather on a Cricut?
The best way to get a smooth leather cut with your Cricut is to use a clean cutting mat and a fresh blade. This is because the material is much thicker and stronger than other types of materials.
You will also want to tell your Cricut Maker that you’re cutting leather, and the Cricut Design Space makes it really easy to do this. Under the browse all materials drop down, you can choose Genuine Leather.

Do you need a special blade to cut faux leather on Cricut?
No, you do not!
The only Cricut knife blade you need is the fine-point blade that comes with the machine.
But, you will find that the cut is better when you use a newer blade. One that is dull will not cut through the leather as well and might damage your materials.
Is a luggage tag necessary?
Personally, I love using custom leather Cricut luggage tags. It helps me so much when I am traveling.
At the airport, I can worry less that someone will take my suitcase by accident. Or worse, that I will take someone else’s suitcase off the airport conveyor belt by accident.
Plus, luggage tags can make your luggage feel more stylish and personal to you.
How can I make a quick luggage tag?
These faux leather luggage tags are really fast and easy to make because the Cricut machine does all of the cutting for you. All you need to do is glue the pieces together.
This project took me less than 20 minutes to make.
