27 A Thank You: Free Printable Summer Gift Wrapping Set


As a thank you to you all for coming by each day, I've made a printable summer gift wrap set free to download.  I found some beautiful vintage postcards and ephemera, and created three different gift wraps that sort of work together with a summer theme in mind.  I also included some gift tags to match. (Props: Crocheted rock and fabric pinecone by Margaret Oomen of Resurrection Fern). Here are the links:

stripes gift paper
stripes gift tags

Happy wrapping! And thank you for visiting!

Thanks Amy - I had fun making them!

Laura said...

LOVELY!! Thank you! Btw, anyone have a suggestion as to a good home printer to print lovelies like these? I've been thinking of getting a new one for a while. I wouldn't mind having a fairly nice one, but can't spend a ton on a REALLY nice one. Suggestions would be SO great!

Hi Laura,

Good question. It depends what you're wanting to print - for these papers - I just use our canon mx350 - but if you're wanting to print real art - i hear the epsons have some amazing printers -

That rodeo paper is excellent - looking closely at it, it is from New Zealand, the very bottom of the world.

And we are most certainly not having summer at the moment.

I wonder where you found it.

Beautiful Summer color and texture.

They go together perfectly! No sort of about it :) What a gorgeous presentation! Especially love the postcard accented with the striped tag. The rodeo adds such a cool pop! Thank you for sharing!

Anon - yes they are from "The Commons" - on flickr - The National Library NZ - which is so awesome - have you seen it? FYI - if you or anyone was wondering - most of the images there have "no known copyright restritions"

Jan | Poppytalk said...

Thanks Rikkianne - Sweet of you to say.

Omigosh, a NZ poster! That's so random! I always get a little thrill when I see or hear a reference to NZ (we all do, really... either we're full of national pride or just a little bit lame, ha ha!)

Thanks for letting me know about the National Library Website, I had no clue it was even there! And to think I walk past the building every day!

Totally awesome paper anyway. Thanks so much!
