make this no-sew luggage tag in less time than it takes to pack!
all that this project requires is cutting and gluing, could that be easier? don’t think so!

i was a little afraid of doing a no sew attempt, and i had no idea if the super glue was going to be sturdy enough for the leather. but it’s been months now and it holds up just fine.
