Have you ever made these?? My kids love 'em, especially when I make them for a trip that we're going on. They're super easy to make. Just head over to your local office supply store (Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, Kinkos, etc) and get a pack of plastic badge holders.

Then cut your patterned paper to fit inside. Now, even though these badges say 2 1/2 x 3 1/2, I actually had to cut the longer side to 3 1/4. So make sure it fits before you embellish. And keep the embellishments to a minimum or it won't fit in the sleeve. I simply used some strips of leftover paper from the Sept Kraft Girl Kit and a couple punches. I stamped a circle around the name using the Think Happy Thoughts stamp set from Stampin' Up! I added some stitching, twine and ribbon and voila!

I left the opposite side blank to add my kids' school info. You can do the same thing when using these for travel.

I'll be sharing some Disney ones soon...my kids fave!!
