Backpack Tags

I have made these before, but the boys needed new ones. I found some images that were just perfect for each of them – mostly from A Muse – and I finally got around to making these. I did them each two sided so they could pick two things to “represent” them. So here they are!

(Oh, and I make these using luggage/badge id holders from Walmart – they are found on the office supply aisle and are about $1.50 for 10 of them. I use the ball-and-chain keychain type thingies to hang them on their backpacks.)  You can see more info on my original post about there <here>.

Here is the first side of them:

For the first side Andy chose the mad scientist since he loves science, Adam chose the red robot – his two favorite things, and Alex got the rockstar guitarist.


supplies: A Muse images and polka dot alpha; white red, wild wasabi, black and ballet blue cardstock; lots of inks; SU alpha for Andy’s name; walmart ID holders and silver sakura glitter pen.

For the other side they got these: Andy chose the lion – his school’s mascot, Adam again went with the Red Robot, and Alex got a Super hero colored as closely to Superman as possible….he wanted me to draw the symbol on his costume, but I told him I am not that talented!


supplies: same as above only the lion image is from Wild About You from SU.

I am going to add these as another customize-able option in my “for sale” page. I wish the boys would have let me add ribbons, but you know how boys are, lol!

  • Hey Emily, it’s Amy
    sorry I haven’t gotten back to you since before Christmas. It’s been a bit crazy here.
    Anyway, I was wondering if you could send me my totals for the tags you got for me. I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks a bunch.
    I can’t wait to get started on those tags. Although, I don’t know if mine will even come close to the awesomeness of yours.

  • Hi Emily! I have tried to send you a return email about my tags I asked about before, but I am having no such luck with email lately… Could you email me about them?

    Those are sooo fun! I saw the names & couldn’t believe they were the same names as my 3 boys, plus I also have an Anna. At least she’d let me attach ribbons to her tag. Thanks for the inspiration!
