There are 6 styles, 9 tags/cards on this one page PDF file. There should be a design to please just everyone in your crew. :) And it's as simple as: download/open, print, cut. Fill in the necessary information on your chosen tag then just slip it into the luggage tag holder that hangs from your luggage handle. If your luggage has no tag holder blank clear plastic ones are fairly inexpensive at chain stores or local grocers, and some pharmacies. Or, one could always be a super thrift like me and laminate the filled out card, use a hole punch on the middle left hand side and then slip a pull-tie right on through there and bingo...baggage tag! :)
These are standard sized. (2.35" X 4.16")
AMC's WALKING DEAD fans seem to be everywhere! When I log into my Facebook account I see 10 memes looking me dead in the eye everyday. So, I say to myself (as I am prone to do), "Self, these folks really do miss this show! We have do something to help them over this hump..., after all October is a long way off from April!" (Yes, I do talk to myself in EXTREME third person.) So, here is me helping friends...
This one is awesome and tricky (only tricky if you are wanting to print.) Want to CREATE YOUR OWN WALKING DEAD MEME? <--------just click there! These fan-created memes are actually to entered into a contest but if you would like to print before you enter simply create your fantastic meme (pick a picture, name it, caption it), and just before you submit it place your cursor (mouse arrow) over the picture, right click on the image and choose the print option. After printing remember to submit your meme. You just might be the next big winner! :)
This one is almost cute. It falls into our "EXTREME PRINTABLES" catagory. This is a 3-D Paper Desk Zombie. How cool is that?!?! Even better than him being sort of cute in a really gross way is that his mouth goes up and down to chew! Clever, huh?
Now for my favorite (it comes from a children's site (smartypantsfun.com), but you will get the drift of it...Here are some FLOWERS THAT YOU SHOULD NOT STOP TO SMELL. It is a very easy print, cut, place craft. I couldn't find an acceptable printable put for these flowers, so I whipped one up, here's the link for that --->Printable Flower Pot PDF. These will set flat, like to hang on the refrigerator or wall. Still cute though, and twisted...am I right?!?!
Making all of these crafts can take some time...and that is a good thing...October is still 4 months away!...I suggest making A LOT of these!!! :)

Okay, I have two wonderful nieces that are both in elementary school (well 4 wonderful nieces, 3 in elementary school but this soap-box ranting is related to only 2 of them), one doesn't like to turn in her homework, and the other is grossly lacking proper economical terms.
My Shelley (the youngest of the two and in the second grade) doesn't like to do and/or turn in homework (sometimes it's done, but sits in her backpack for a week!) For her I have created these cute little punch cards. There is a place for her name, an encouraging text, and when all ten of the stars are "punched" (like those coffee or buffet cards we get at popular restaurants and cafes) then she may turn in that card for whatever prize is set for that goal (or a dip into the "treasure" box!)
((NOTE: I keep an old boot box of left over party favors, stocking stuffers and stuff that I have scored from 50 cent machines...and waalaa instant TREASURE BOX!))
HOMEWORK SUPER STAR Rewards Card
This is what each card looks like; there are nine cards on each page. I am going to use some cheap card stock that I have piled up, and since I do not have a proper hole punch at the moment I think that I will put a dot with a black marker, or sign my initials (like that do the ones from the chinese buffet down the street form me at lunch time) for each day she does AND turns in her homework (she has an "agenda" where her teacher makes notes for when things are not turned in.) Teachers could use them too as an incentive to get students to actually turn in homework! :)
The next item up for grabs can be used by mom's at home, or teachers at school, and we must not forget all of the mom's that teach at home...:) Anyhow, this is "PRIZE CURRENCY" that can be earned by doing homework, chores, going to bed on time, brushing teeth, what-have-you. There is a TON of printable "Prize Money" to be found on the internet, but mine specifically do not say "MONEY", I used the word "CURRENCY" and I did this for a reason!!! Phyllisity, the third grader looked at me like I was speaking an alien language to her a few days ago when I told her that the gold dollar that she got from the tooth fairy were in fact actually American currency. She then asks me with a squirrelled-up face, "What is 'currency'?" I thought that I would fall over! She is in the third grade and has social studies, math, and vocabulary lessons at school; how has she never heard this word?!?
PRIZE CURRENCY ($1 NOTES)
With all that said, here is the "currency" that we are going to use at home. Hopefully she can not only learn the value of working hard to earn said "currency" but maybe it will broaden her vocabulary as well!!!
There are 6 notes per page. I'm not sure if card stock , regular old printer paper or a nice glossy would be my pick for this project. I guess that your budget, what you have in stock, or your fancy can lead you to decide which is best for you and yours on this one! :)
Maybe that "Treasure Box" can come in handy again for this project. Simply put a "price" on things inside. Or maybe one could have a "Prize Closet", or currency could be exchanged for a trip to the skate park, or a "stay-up-15-extra-minutes-at-bed-time" pass (might be best if there was a "non-school-night-only-clause" on this one)...it's limitless and up to you, so set your price! :)
Thank you all for stopping by and tolerating my rants!
GOOD DAY TO YOU ALL & HAPPY PRINTING! :)

You can get these cuties together of individually at *freeprettythingsforyou.com*.
The images are large enough that you could print them on iron-on paper and make a cute t-shirt, or you could leave them that size or reduce them (you save the image after all, play with the size if you need to) and use them for a nice card; after all July 1st is NATIONAL POSTAL WORKER DAY!
PS. It's always on July 1st, no need to google that if you are seeing this years form today...4/16/14 :)
**And then the evil mediafire bandit destroyed them! So, Stephanie made these...sorry that there is only 11 per page, but they are cute! :)
Come and get 'em!

As Jamie can tell you, I have always had a thing for men who are
a tad very GEEK-TACULAR! If you knew my husband then you may doubt this statement....I didn't say that I could get a man who is geek-tacular to marry me; I said I had a thing for them..lol. (But that was before I met my wonderful husband, who was made perfectly for me, and I never look at any other men like that...no matter how awesomely dorky they look...,just in case he's looking) ((wink)) But seriously, have you ever seen a paper bow tie? Pure "awesomesauce" I say!
