Make a Stencil With Tape
Punch holes in washi tape to create a mask for the polka dots. Stick to the back of the luggage tag and smooth them down to ensure that no paint seeps through.
Paint Polka Dots
Paint each of the polka dots (images 1 and 2), and remove the tape before the paint dries to ensure clean borders.
Add Color Block Pattern
Set the tags aside for a few minutes while the polka dots dry. When you can touch them without any paint coming off on your fingers, tape a diagonal line across the top of the luggage tag (image 1). Paint a block of color above the tape (image 2), and remove the tape before the paint dries (image 3).
