Let’s Make This

Whatever age your children might be, they will enjoy going on an Easter Tag Scavenger Hunt. Foster their creativity by having them help decorate the tags. These colorful tags contain hidden scavenger hunt instructions inside.

Follow along with the instructions or scroll below for a complete video tutorial.

1. Begin by gathering your supplies. You will need:

  • TOOLS:
    Zip Gift Tag die
    Die cutting machine
    Adhesive tape: 1/8″
    Washi tape
    White cardstock
    Pink cardstock scraps
    Ribbon {optional}
    Instax photos {optional}


Starting with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock, adhere the washi tape at an angle in an area large enough to cover the entire tag shape. Lay the Zip Gift Tag die over the washi tape and place the zip insert in the top opening of the tag die.

Die cut another tag shape out of white cardstock. Do not insert the zip die piece before cutting.

Apply thin adhesive tape around the back edges of the tag front. Do not put any tape over the die cut zip areas.

Cut the pink cardstock into strips that are 3 3/4″ wide by 1/2″ high. Write the scavenger instructions on these strips. 

Fold down a little tab on one end of the pink strip and place it near the top of the plain tag. This will help pull it out of the zipped opening later. 

IMPORTANT: Before sealing up the tag, keep track of each scavenger instruction so you know the order of each location. Mark a little number on the outside of the tag to keep track of the order when hiding the tags.

If your child cannot read yet, take an Instax photo or print out a photo of the scavenger locations. Your child can easily recognize where the next location is by the picture.

Zip Gift Tag

Carefully stack the tag back, note or photo and the front tag and adhere together. Add a little ribbon if desired.

Have your children help decorate these tags and hide them all around your home. You can also add little notes inside to let your family know how much you care about them.
