Super easy Bowdabra backpack tag

First, cut a rectangle from vinyl scrapbook paper. Next, cut the edges to shape the corners.

Now use a ruler and a sharpie marker to make the lines for the luggage name tag. Then, make a preparatory hole with the hole punch. Next, hammer the grommet into the hole.

In order to make the bow, cut the Bowdabra bow wire to size, fold in half, and lay it into the Mini Bowdabra.

Make a scrunchy bow with the folds at the corners as shown in the video. Scrunch down with the Bowdabra wand. While the bow is still in the Bowdabra, insert the loose wires through the loop and pull tight.

Finishing your Bowdabra backpack tag

Finally, tie off the bow. Pull it out of the mini Bowdabra and tie it through the grommet and knot it.

To finish, wrap the yarn around the bow and through the grommet to cover the Bowdabra bow wire

As a final touch, cut the eyelash yarn. Use the Bowdabra bow wire to attach the tag to backpack or luggage.  Use the Bowdabra bow wire to attach the bow to the backpack or luggage
