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.

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
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!

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!

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.

Everywhere I look there seems to be garlands. Whether they are made from triangles of sweet fabric or stickers and tape attached to twine, I swoon over them all. I’ve been trying to figure out how to incorporate a garland (or five) into my life. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse. Here’s what I made for the peeps in my family. If these tickle your fancy, feel free to make some for your valentines. See download link at the end of this post.
There are 5 Valentine messages + some extra hearts.
I plan to hang them around the house with Japanese Masking Tape in places like the back of a chair, the bathroom mirror, the shower door, closet doors, the front of the frig and for an extra surprise, on my husband’s steering wheel (or maybe his windshield) so he’ll find one when he leaves for work.
I tried to make the Printable as easy to use as possible. All the tiles butt up to each other to reduce the number of cuts and there are tiny dots to indicate where to punch the holes (I used 1/16″ hole punch, but you could use a larger size). Thread with Divine Twine, string, thin ribbon or embroidery floss. Enjoy!
