Free Printable – Fourth of July

June 23rd, 2011 § 3 comments § permalink

I know I sound like a broken record, but seriously, where does the time go!?? How can it already be time to celebrate the Fourth of July? Well apparently it is, so I’ve put together a free Printable for you to use in your decorating. There are 12 scallop circles to the 8.5 x 11″ page and they can be used in lots of ways. Create a garland, make cupcake toppers, decorate some gift bags, attach to a party invite or punch two holes in them and slip a straw through. Below are some photos to get your creative juices flowing. If you have time, please leave a comment and let me know how you’ll be using them. It’s nice to hear what happens to these free Printables when they go out into the world.

We’re excited to have our first guest blogger, Carly Robertson from Paper In Bloom.  She created fabulous paper garlands using Divine Twine that she recently featured at her twin daughters’ birthday party.  Welcome Carly!

Paper Garland Project by Carly Robertson
This is a super easy and fun paper garland project. First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. You’ll need 3 different sizes of circle punches, pattern paper, coloured bakers twine and glue.
Next, punch out plenty of different sized circle shapes from the pattern paper and sort in groups of small, medium and large.
Then glue two same sized circle punched shapes together with the coloured bakers twine in between them. Repeat until you have the garland length desired.
Lastly, hang your garland and you’re done! How easy is that!

Thank you SO much for the wonderful tutorial, Carly!  Your garlands would add a festive touch to any gathering!

Free Printable ~ Holiday Garland

November 28th, 2010 § 58 comments § permalink

Back in February I offered a free Valentine’s Day garlands printable and people seemed to like it. A reader asked about a holiday garland. Great idea!

This time around there are two sheets. You can mix and match the words to create your own sayings. There are several tiny images to place at the beginning and end of words + they also make great gift tags.

Use as gift tags too

You can use tape (yea! another reason to use Japanese Masking Tape!) to hang a garland on your front door, mantle or wall. One attached to a large wrapped gift would be nifty too.

If you download this printable, it would be lovely if you’d leave a comment. It’s fun to see who and how many people enjoy it. Feel free to spread the word. Enjoy!

New Stationery Designs

October 25th, 2010 § 4 comments § permalink

My fantasy job is to design paper goods (stationery, invites, labels etc) all day long. But since filling orders, shipping, bookkeeping etc. takes up most of my work day I don’t get to do much designing anymore. (I’m not complaining. I appreciate each and every person who has ordered from Whisker Graphics. Truly I do! ) But when it was one of my best pals birthday last month, some new designs were in order. Denise requested stationery for her gift and here’s what I created for her.
