  • Adhesive Foam Sheets (size: 6x9")
  • Adhesive Foam Stickers (Optional)
  • Hole Punch
  • Plastic Lacing cord
  • Sharpies
  • Split Rings


    1. Using a pencil, draw a line 2.5 inches below the top of the long side of the foam sheet.
    2. Cut along the line. You should now have a rectangle that is 2.5x9".
    3. Cut the rectangle in half. You should now have 2 rectangles that are 2.5x4.5".
    4. Using the hole punch, punch a hole through the end of each rectangle (the position of the hole should be in the middle of the short edge of the rectangle about 0.5" in from the edge.
    5. Peel the backing off the two foam rectangles and stick them together being careful to line up the edges and the punched hole.
    6. Use a sharpie to write your name on the tag.
    7. Decorate! You can use pre-cut foam stickers, or you can cut shapes from the remaining adhesive foam to form patterns or pictures.
    8. Attach the name tag to a split ring using the plastic lacing cord.
