Ideas: Art W Luggage Tags

Thu Aug 14, 2008 12:56 pm

I've been collecting my luggage tags (i.e. the barcoded ones applies by the airport, not the ones with my contact info) and, to a lesser extent, boarding passes, for the past couple years.

Right now they're all sitting in a box looking kind of sad, but now that I'm finally finished doing heavy work on my house and need furniture and stuff for the walls I was thinking it could turn into a kind of cool project... I just can't figure out what would look the coolest.

Any ideas?

Not quite the same, but many years ago my boyfriend of that time and I decided to paper one kitchen wall with menus from various restaurants we'd dined at. Looked pretty good, too....

If you overlapped them fairly closely, anchor them on one end and let the other flap free, you might be able to develop a bit of a shaggy look. It might look interesting on a lampshade or as a piece of wall art. Or a skirt!

I've been doing the same. I just want to keep the passes and tags in the condition I got them. I like to remember my dates and things like that.. I can't stand when they're ripped and what not..

It's not really any sort of art, but for those who are just looking for a better way to keep their boarding passes (or whatever) organized, I thought I'd mention what I do with my boarding passes. I put them in a photo album, the kind with the slightly sticky stiff paper back and clear film cover (not the kind where you slide the photo in, as they won't stay in). I have them in date order. This way I can flip through them when I want to look back through them.

If it's just the stub I can fit 9 on a page; if the boarding pass is full size I can get three on a page.
