It’s Back to School time in our neck of the woods, which includes back packs and lunch boxes. So you can imagine how cool I became to my kids, when I made really cool, personalized Easy Back Pack ID Labels!

Easy to Make Back Pack Tags

This school year I am making backpack brag tags for my kindergartners and decided that my elementary-aged kids would love their own personalized backpack tags as well. And as a mom AND Kindergarten teacher, I know how important it is to clearly label your child’s or student’s personal belongings. It makes returning ‘lost’ items to the owner soooo much easier. And an even better idea is to have the student’s teacher name or room number. Hopefully you can make your own cool tags for your children/students and I promise, your kids AND their teachers will thank you!

Supplies Needed:
Scotch ™ Laminator
Scotch ™ Thermal Puches Letter size 50 pack
Cardstock
Hole Punch
ID badge Clips

I was able to purchase all of my supplies at Wal-Mart in the Back-to-School section, as well as the Office Supply area.

Scotch Thermal Laminator

I purchased a laminator to use for my school projects, but found out that there were so many things that I wanted to laminate at home that I bought another one! And at only $19.97, it is a steal and a must have for the home office! Pssttt…let me let you in on a little secret…the Scotch ™ brand laminator and thermal pouches are the BEST, most durable lamination that I have found. It is WAY better than my school’s laminator!

Step 1: I used PicMonkey (online photo editing website) to create some adorable and personalized tags.

Step 2: After printing them out on cardstock, I inserted the paper into a Scotch ™ thermal pouch and waited for my laminator to warm up. (The ready light will come on when ready)

The lamination is super thick and will withstand a lot of use.

Step 3: I cute out each ID/brag tag and made a hole punch in the top. And then I used the ID badge clips, so they could easily attach to a back pack.
