Secret Message from Elf Template

$4.00

Your kids will be excited to receive a coded message from their Elf on the shelf with this Elf Secret Message printable template (plus decoder & matching envelope labels set).

It’s a fun way to deliver your Elf’s little notes to the kids. Each message comes certified and stamped as an Official Elf Document.

You personalize the message easily at home to say anything you like. Just open it in Adobe Reader and type over my sample text. Your secret message will automatically be coded into Christmas icons as you type.

Don’t forget to customize it with your own Elf’s name too!

The kids use the included Decoder to help them decipher the message for a fun Christmas activity.

Type in your kids names on the included matching labels and then stick them to your envelopes, placing the secret message & decoder inside.

Edit & print as many times as you like.

How it Works

1. INSTANT DOWNLOAD
Instantly download this red & green Elf Secret Message printable template immediately after your payment has been processed.

2. PERSONALIZE AT HOME
Open the template in the FREE Adobe Reader on your laptop or computer and simply type over my sample wording with your own text. This template will ONLY work in Adobe Reader not in any other program (or on your mobile device).

3. CHOOSE YOUR PAPER
All templates print on US Letter (8.5 x 11) or A4 size paper as follows:
For the Secret Message & Decoder – I recommend regular white computer paper/cardstock.
For the Labels – I recommend Avery 8163/5163 labels OR full-sheet sticker paper OR regular white computer paper/cardstock

4. PRINT
Print on your home color printer OR at a copy shop (Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Officeworks etc). If not using the pre-cut Avery labels (for the labels), you will need to cut them out after printing. See all my printing tips here.
