I purchase this roll of dog tag chain at Michael's for $9.99 (I did use my teacher discount so it was less! Next time I will use a coupon too!) I cut it into 18 inch pieces using my husband's metal crimpers. Super easy!
Next, I added these chain connectors. I got 12 for $1.98. I purchased them at Lowes. I couldn't find them at Michael's, so I did a quick search of the net. Lowes carries them in their fan section and they were a great price for the least amount of work!
I went ahead and cut them into the 18" sections and added the connectors. I will tell you I came across a lot of connectors that wouldn't connect. I don't know if it was because my fingers gave out or they just didn't work. But I bought 5 packages so I had plenty. I had enough chain for 21 students, so I will have a few extra for those who come into the class as the year progresses.
Now, I have a great suggestion for purchasing Brag Tags-These adorable tags from The Almost Their Height Teacher!
I just LOVE them! I have purchased all of her Brag Tags for use this year and I'm totally excited to use them! I might try my hand (and have as you will see in a minute!) but not too much, as she has almost everything I would need!
So, with that, I'm calling it a night with a FREEBIE! Here's a Brag Tag for Back to School Night which is, for me, tomorrow night!
When is yours and how do you use Brag Tags!
