Measuring Tape Father’s Day Gift & Printable

UPDATE:  I’ve included the printable with no date, so it will never expire, and can be used from year to year! Download at bottom of post!

  Along with a couple of other girls that I work with at church, we wanted to give all the dads in our church a small gift.   Enter in…the measuring tape!  It’s a staple in every workshop and toolbox, and we think they are going to love it! It’s so simple and fun!

We’re girls…we had to cute-ify it, right?  ☺ Don’t you love it?

Okay, here are all the details…

1.  The measuring tape came from Party City, and they were 99 cents each.  My darling friend traveled to several stores to get as many as we needed, and she discovered that they might not be the same price at each store.  She did get the prices matched, but I wanted to pass info on to you.  They are in the party favors section, and have a baby sticker on it.

2.  I wanted to cover the old sticker with a new one, so I created this printable to be the same size–1.5 inches–and printed it out full sheet white labels. I used a 1.5 circle punch to punch them out, then placed them right on top of the old sticker!!

3. If you want to use a measuring tape that this sticker wouldn’t work with, you can always print it out on white cardstock, and use it as a tag instead!!!

Here’s an image for the tag that has no text at all at the bottom, in case you would like to use it for another father’s event not associated with Father’s Day.  Just click on the image, and save to your computer.  You can then insert it into Word as a picture, and re-size it as you need it!

You are loved beyond measure | A gift for dads |


Share and save for later!


  1. Really nice idea…the dads will love it! Thanks for the idea for the future!
    Have a happy day!

  2. Hey, love these!! Trying to imitate for a non-father’s day gift and I was wondering if you’d mind sharing the fonts you used? For some reason I can never find sans serif fonts that I like similar to the one you used for “you are loved”


    1. The font I used for “you are loved” is called “tall dark and handsome”, and you can download it for free here:

      If you need to know any others, let me know!!! xo

      1. Honestly, I was gonna copy all of your fonts :) I almost thought it was tall dark and handsome when I saw it as I was browsing dafont :) Thanks!! I’m making them for the ladies at church and we have a bunch to do so I want it to look nice.

        1. Lol, no problem! Beyond is written in “Marcelle Script”, Measure is in “EcuyerDax” and Happy Father’s Day is in “Special Elite”. xoxo

          1. Thanks a bunch!!! Love sharing fonts!! They’re way too much fun and I end up wasting all my time finding fun ones if I don’t just go straight for the ones I actually need :) lol very cute idea! we were gonna come up with some cute measure saying cause we had bought the tape measures before coming up with a design so finding your cute idea makes life a lot easier!! :D

  3. I love this idea and would love to do it for my preschool children here at school. Silly question but how do I change the 2013 to 2014? Thank you!

    1. It’s not silly! You’re not able to change it, I would have to. When were you wanting to do it?

  4. Kierste: I would like to use the measuring tape idea for 2014 Father’s Day. Can you update the date and email the link to me? Love the idea. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents with us.

    1. Hi Ava, I plan on updating it and sharing it as a post–probably the first week May or so. Stay tuned! Hope that works!!! xo

  5. Interested in the Fathers day tape measure you showed on-line. I live in Camdenton , Mo and need to know where I can purchase these. Many thanks for any help. They are for our fathers at church on Fathers day. Nancy Milburn

    1. Hello! We got ours at Party City–they were actually in the baby shower section, with a baby sticker on the top, and we removed them and put ours on. I would check party supply stores, and even the local dollar store. Good luck!!!

  6. Love this idea! Any chance you could remove the Happy Father’s day completely at the bottom? I would love to use these as a Father Daughter dance gift for the dads.

    1. Hi, Melanie! I just added an image for you at the bottom of the post without the Father’s Day text!!! xoxo

  7. You are awesome. These are going to be great for the Dads of my Preschool Sunday School class!
