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.

The final luggage tags were also made using a heat press machine to attach the heat transfer vinyl.

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.

    • Faux Leather
    • Clear Vinyl
    • Paper
    • Heat Transfer Vinyl
    • Eyelet Snaps
    • E6000 Glue


    • Cricut Machine
    • Claw Clamp
    • Mini Heat Press


    1. Download the SVG & Modify The Names Using cricut design space, modify the text you want your luggage tag to say before printing the paper.

      To download the SVG file, enter your name and email address in the form in the blog post. Once you've done this, you will get an email from me which includes the file download and instructions to edit your SVG file.
    2. Cut Out The Materials. Using the Cricut cutting mat, lay down your clear vinyl to be cut on your Cricut machine.

      Once you've finalized your SVG file in Cricut Design, you can cut out the materials based on the suggested settings.

      As you are cutting your materials, make sure you have the right material selected for the piece that is being cut on your Cricut.

      By the end of this step, you should have your faux leather, clear vinyl, paper, and heat transfer vinyl cut.
    3. Put Together Your Custom Luggage Tag Using a heat press machine, press the vinyl onto your luggage tags.

      Now that your materials are cut, it's time to put your luggage tag together, and the first step is to press the HTV onto the leather pieces. To do this, use your heat press machine.
    4. Next, you want to create a "window" by gluing on the clear vinyl. I recommend that you use the E6000 glue to make sure that it properly sticks and stands up well to wear and tear as you travel.
    5. Next, using the same glue, attach the back of the tags.
    6. And the final step is to add the snaps onto the handle portion of your luggage tag using your claw clamp. This will let you add and remove your luggage tags easily. Using your claw clamp, attach your buttons or snaps to the handle on your luggage tag.
