Just a quick tip for today's Works for Me Wednesday!
I've been brainstorming some ribbon projects for tomorrow's Monthly Craft Challenge party. And somehow I got to thinking how you could use ribbon as a luggage identifier. When my husband and I got married we, of course, registered for the basic black luggage set which everyone else also owns! So, when we would go on vacation (which really isn't that often) we had a hard time trying to figure out which luggage was ours in the mass amount of black luggage.
To solve that problem I decided to tie on a few ribbons, so that now when the luggage is passing through the carousel we can instantly spot ours! I know this isn't quite a genius idea. My mom actually uses a fabric scrap for hers, so I kind of copied the idea from her, but I thought I would share it anyway because I know it will work for me (maybe we should plan a vacation just to test it out!) I wanted to be all cute and tie on lots of colors of ribbon, but then I got to thinking...every now and then my husband goes on solo business trips and I'm sure he doesn't want to be lugging around a "frilly" looking suitcase. In fact, this might be pushing it a bit. (Good thing I did it on just the large suitcase, huh, babe?)
Come to find out...today's WFMW is the Frugal Edition. This would definitely be considered frugal...just head to your ribbon scraps and with just a few pieces of ribbon you're good to go. Go check out more frugal tips at We Are That Family.
Don't forget to come back tomorrow so we can all share our ribbon craft projects. If you want to come back to join us, please do! We're linking up new or old posts that showcase ribbon projects so that we can be inspired to keep creating!! Want more information, go HERE. If you don't have something to share, that's OK...just come on back anyway to see what others have been up to!
