    1. Hi Bianca! I originally bought these at Michael’s however I don’t think they are selling them right now. 🙁 I was able to find smaller ones on Amazon. I know it’s not the same! I’m hoping Michael’s will sell these again. Here is my Amazon Affiliate link if you want to check out the smaller version: https://amzn.to/3KoPrSa

  1. Love love love this!!! How big are the tags for the blowers? Did you purchase them? If so, can you provide the link please? Thank you!

    1. Hi Amber! I just copy and pasted the images from a Google search into a Word document and cut them out on cardstock. Each size varies depending on the character, just leave enough room for a hole punch.
