How to Create Brag Tags

This post walks you through the steps of creating brag tags by creating a master tag and inserting it into a PowerPoint template.
Part of the fun of using brag tags in your classroom is creating your own to go with the special things that you do in your classroom. For example, our school has a traveling trophy for the class who gets the most PBIS tickets each week. That tag is on the right end in the above picture.

In this post, I'm going to be going through the steps on how to create your own brag tags using my template. Clicking on the picture below will take you to the template.

Dimensions
The first step is to decide what the dimensions of your tag will be. I prefer a smaller size (1.25"x2") as shown in the picture above, but I know that primary teachers tend to create bigger tags.

Open the file with the name that starts with the desired dimensions. This is your master template.

Design
Now is the fun part! Using your own clip art and fonts, design your tag. Lots of great fonts and clip art can be purchased on TeachersPayTeachers.

Once you have designed your master template, you are ready to insert it into the template sheet. Open the DIYRewardTagsPPTTemplate file and go to the slide with the tag dimensions that you need.

Now, watch this video to see how to save and insert:

Finishing
After your sheet of tags is ready, it's time to print! I prefer printing on cardstock, laminating, then cutting and punching holes, but your time and budget will determine what's best for you.

Have fun!

  1. How do you set up the single template? That's my issue. I love the idea of inserting. That's genius!

    1. In a separate PPT file, create a single slide that is the dimensions of your tag, ie. 1.25 x 2. If you want more room to work with, double or triple the dimensions or more, like 5x8. Does that help?
