Faux leather and Foil – How to make luggage tags

See how to make your own luggage identification tags using your Cricut and an underused material, faux leather.

Faux leather is not a material that we use often with our Cricut.

But did you know that only the fine point blade, the regular blade, is needed to cut it? So that means you can cut the faux leather whether you have a Cricut Maker, Explore or even a Joy!

So, in this project, I will use Cricut faux leather, Iron-on (for a special little trick) as well as the foil tip to make pretty identification tags for your luggage!

And I also have for you not one, but two free tag templates that you will find in NeliDesign’s library. If you don’t already have access to it, sign up below

How to make foil permanent on faux leather

If you have already tested foil on faux leather, you know that it does not hold up very well and rubs off as soon as you touch it. Well, know that I found a super easy trick to make foil permanent on faux leather.

Just use a waterproof spray for shoes and boots! Yes, yes! I do not know if you have that at home, but here in Quebec, it is rather required in particular to protect our winter boots!

Interested in the label “J’ai mon voyage” that you saw in the video?

You can also make it! The quote “J’ai mon voyage” is also available for free in the library.

Here are the materials used for the label “J’ai mon voyage”

  • Cricut Maker, Explore or Joy!
  • Faux leather, the colour of your choice (I used the blue of the “Patina” sample)
  • Iron-On (I used some leftovers and the back is the holographic Smart Iron-On)
  • EasyPress (I used the EasyPress 3 – 9 x 9)
  • Mat for the EasyPress
  • Free SVG for the tags and quote “J’ai mon voyage”. Available in NeliDesign’s library (see above)
