I did not realize open-faced luggage tags were considered a security rick - until I had to fill out new tags at the airport and found they fold over to prevent access to personal information (name, address, phone number).

I had wanted to make some fabric luggage tags, but now they need to be "secure."

As a result, the "Stash Couture and Secure" Luggage Tag.


Because the ribbon is fed through a grommet (or buttonhole) the tag hangs closed, keeping all information secure. If access to the information is required, the tag can be opened - like a wallet.



The free tutorial is on the Destashification Project

This is very clever. Thanks for sharing.

It is a cute idea. Have you tested this with checked luggage? I have a feeling that they may say that the ribbon could get caught on something. (Seems like they're always finding something)

I love that idea, and am very likely to make a couple out of fabric scraps. A nice way to remember a favourite garment.

Good "catch"!! (couldn't resist)..

I made a few of the "Open-faced" tags a few years back and have checked the tagged bags on a number of airlines with no issues.

Tomorrow's flight will be a chance to test these....

I need to make some. I like them because they help me identify my black suitcase from the multitudes

I've returned from my weekend travels and am happy to report the luggage tags were accepted and "passed scrutiny" at all airports I traveled through.

YAY!

I think I will be making many of these for Christmas gifts this year!

They really do make nondescript luggage easy to find on the carousels!

Good point! Thanks for the idea.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

PR member LibbyLA also has a luggage tag pattern - it uses a secure flap to cover your information. I've made several and liked it.
