How to Make a Creative NameTag

Using creative lettering ideas to create amazing Name Designs.
I willStart with basic LINE. 
Then move to SHAPE. 
Then end with FORM. 

Mrs. Garcia's 4th grade

Basic steps.
Kinder -1st grade
If kinder needs pre-teaching, scroll to bottom for pre-assignment. 

Start with line letters using a light color marker. Leave space in between. They will get thicker. 

Use a darker color marker to deactivate little touching circles going over letters. 
Draw more circles all around name. Do not fill them in with color. Leave them circles. 
Finish filling in entire background with little circles in different colors. Do circles till you can fit any more. 
2nd- 3rd grade

Basic Steps
Start with line letters using a light color marker. Leave space in between. They will get thicker. 
Trace around thick light line with a darker color marker. 
Use pencil or marker to draw lines around name. Keep going until it runs off page. 
Color inbetween the lines with contrasting colors, patterns or a scheme. 

STRETCHED Name design
Start by drawing your name in pencil with each letter touching the top and bottom of the line (stretching up and down) to expand in the space. If it looks funny, it is ok. If you have to change from capitals and lower case to get it right, that's ok too. 
Use a black marker to outline the stretched out letters. 
Begin using thick, colorful marker lines inside of the shapes the lines have made. You can also color this in solid if you wish. 

The end result looks more like shapes and color than a defined name. 
Sort of like stained glass.
