When I first started reading [mostly craft] blogs, I remember being so excited when someone would offer a cool (free!) printable. I downloaded several years ago, and I just found them again in a folder while unpacking craft supplies. I've decided that no matter what the printable was originally intended for, I am going to find a way to use it in my stationery.
Here are a few of the print outs I found the other day that are still available online (yay!). All three of these are oldies but goodies created by Ez Pudewa of Creature Comforts blog, one of the loveliest places on the Internet. (There are lots of beautiful pictures in the original blog posts--be sure to take a look!)
These mini wallpaper notes are just delicious. I love the pattern and colors so much! The printable comes with a template for a mini (3x3 inch) envelope as well.
These hand painted paper button embellishments can be printed as buttons or plain round discs (with no button holes). There are so many uses for these, but I think they would be fun decorating notecards or an envelope/package, or simply used as envelope enclosures/large confetti!
And I can't get over these oversized paper bows, available to print in pink, aqua, and plain white (for embellishing). Wouldn't it be fun to see one of these on a package?
Now that I have found these again, I can't wait to use them! Just thought I'd share in case some of my snail mail/stationery friends might take a fancy to them as well. :)
Hope you enjoy!
P. S. When a blogger is super generous and shares an awesome free printable, I think it's always nice to leave a thank-you comment when you download, letting them know you appreciate their sharing something so great. And always give credit when you use a blogger's designs in one of your own projects! Happy weekend and happy creating!
