Polar Express Bell Tags

I’m back with segment 2 of our Polar Express Christmas party (invitations here, printable tickets here, polar express quote subway art here)- the party favors.  Santa will be handing these bells out to all the good little boys & girls when they sit on his knee. I have a few different versions for you today, one is the quote you see below in the photo that focuses on Christ, the other is the original quote from the movie/book.

You can print these out in two ways:

  1.  Print them out on regular 8.5X11 cardstock printer paper from home or at Kinkos
  2. Print them out as 4X6 photos at walmart or the like.  Just depends on the finish you want for your tags.

Then punch holes, tie a pretty ribbon, and attach a bell.  Here are some perfect ones that even have the word “believe” on them. You can also check your dollar store, I found some great ones there around Christmas, 9 in a pack.

  1. I throw a polar express party every year at my house. Thanks you and your amazing talents, I can tie in Christ to my party too!

  2. I LOVE the bell tag with Christ on it but am trying to figure out how i can make each individual tag a 4×6 i would love to have them a little bigger. Do you have a file of them a little bigger?

  3. Thank you for sharing and doing all of the hard work! I wondered if you have a download of the bell tags with the Savior in a different size? I would like to print them as single 4×6’s, 5×7’s and 8×10’s to put in frames on some of the tables along with the other subway art. If you don’t have a download available, would it be possible to arrange for you to do that?
