Somehow I ended up with a few of these buckles/clips and had a lot of leather pieces in my pile of stuff.
So I decided to make luggage tags that came up looking very good.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Luggage Tags - Leather
All you need are buckles/clips, leather, rivets, rivet gun, and a soldering Iron.
You can also stitch them if you don't have rivets.
Step 2: Cut Leather
While your soldering iron is warming up, write on the tag the information with a regular ink pen.
The handwritten information will serve as a guide when you trace it with the soldering iron.
Cut strips of leather to fit the width of the bucke/clip and to a desired length that will allow you to write the information you want to display.
Now days, my cell number is all I need to display. So I just wrote my first name and my cell number on the tags.
The display I'm showing also makes reference to the days when I was in the U.S. Army.
Step 3: End Product
Once you have traced the information with the soldering iron, you can insert the leather and install a rivet at the tip of the tag.
Since the buckles/clips can swivel, I write the same information on both sides of the tags, this is nice because the information is always displaying no matter what.
Display your custom made tags.
