DIY Personalized Bag Tags and Printables for Lunch Box and Backpack

Share this post

It’s Back to School time and that means fresh lunchboxes and backpacks. I made some Bag Tags you can personalize and download. The floral backgrounds I chose were from The Lilly blog.

How to Make a Bag Tag:


  • Cardstock
  • Printer
  • Hole puncher
  • ribbon, rope, or shoelace
  • laminator (optional)
  1. First download the desired pfd from the end of this post. Personalize with your child’s name.
  2. Print on Cardstock.
  3. Cut out tags from cardstock
  4. Laminate –  My current obsession is a $24 Thermal Laminator. I use it to laminate photos, kids’ artwork, soccer certificates, recipe cards, place-mats, bag tags and more. It’s highly addictive and so simple that my daughter uses it.
  5. Trim away excess laminate with scissors or cutter.
  6. Punch a hole and insert ribbon
  7. My boys are not ribbon people, so I used some rope and a shoelacerope

You are done. Printable templates at end of post.

You can use them on:

  • lunch boxes
  • backpacks
  • diaper bags
  • suitcases
  • sporting bags (tennis racket bag)
  • gifts

I had several questions about where I got the lunchboxes.
