There are many key rings and wallet cards like this for sale on Amazon, but I decided to make one myself using a few items around the house: tape, scissors and a hole punch.

Take a look at the step-by-step process below!

Step 1: I created a simple template in Microsoft Paint for the two sides of the tag. One side says “My Pet is Home Alone” and the other lists emergency contacts.

Step 2: After putting the two sides of paper together with the print facing out, I laminated the tag by covering it with clear packaging tape.
