FREE GIFT TAGS FOR ALL YOUR CUTE PRESENTS

If you  have been following me for a while, you know I LOVE Lisa Glanz. I’ve basically purchased all her cute animal and floral illustrations the moment they come out. You can say Lisa is my woman crush. I totally adore everything that she does. Don’t believe me?

Here are some freebies that I’ve created using her illustrations:

First day of school  and the matching last day of school signs

Free last day of school 2019 dog

2019 animal desk calendar

 

Since I have so many of her works and love what she does, I’ve decided to include more printable freebies using her illustrations.

Today, I want to give you these super sweet and whimsical bear and friends gift tags.

You can print these on cardstock and just clip them on gift bags using clothespins.

Print them on sticker paper and stick them straight to the bag.

Or you can punch a hole and use string to tie the thank you tag to the gift bag.

Tie a nice tassel to turn the gift tag into a bookmark.

Lots of cute ideas, right?!




These gift tags are designed to coordinate with the bear and friends party invitation in the shop.

I’ve been wanting to do editable invitation templates in the shop for a while now. I was trying to figure out a way that you can customize it exactly how you like it without having a million back and forth conversations with me.

 

This week I discovered Corjl. It’s a free online editing platform for personalizing editable templates.  There is no waiting for personalized proofs. You can edit your templates right away on your computer or mobile device after purchased.

 

You can edit my purchased templates until you are satisfy, download it to your computer and print them at home or at your local print shop.

 

The other great thing about Corjl is that you can view a demo of my templates. You customized the template to see if you’re comfortable using the online editing platform before purchasing it.

 

Here is the demo for the bear and friends invitation:

You can’t edit this freebie in Corjl as they don’t offer it to use with free printables. You can easily personalize these using Picmonkey or Canva.




Download these bear and friends gift tag in the Printable Resource Library.

These gift tags are included in my library. It’s FREE to access. You just need a special password.

Sign up below to get access to this and tons of other cute printables.

Free Panda Party Invitation template + Video Tutorial

Free Panda Party Invitation template + Video Tutorial

I’ve got pandas on the brain recently so I got onto my favorite online design program, Canva, to create some panda party invitation and decorations for you.

You can also create your own panda party invitation very easily using Canva.

If you don’t have time to create your own, this free panda party invitation is perfect for your little panda’s birthday party. There are several templates to choose from.

The first file is with “It’s my birthday” inside the banner and “Time to Celebrate” on the template. You just add your party information underneath.

Edit this using the free Acrobat Reader or the online program, PDFescape.

In order to personalize your invitation in Picmonkey or Canva, you will need to download the PNG file.

Panda Birthday Party template

The second template leaves all the text out so you can put your own wordings. This one could be use for baby shower, birthday, and other social events. You can also just personalize this with your kid’s name in the banner and a cute little quote on the bottom. Print and frame it.

You can personalize these templates several ways:

How to personalize printables using Canva

How to personalize printables using Canva

Have you ever bought a printable from my shop that has tons of white space? Like this giraffe or bunny wall art printable and wish you can personalize it with a name or a quote?

CANVA TUTORIAL PERSONALIZED printables

Today, I will show you how to turn my 8x10 giraffe printable into a party welcome sign using a free online design program called, Canva.

 

WHAT IS CANVA?

 

Canva is an online design program that lets you create tons of beautiful posters, invitations, pinterest graphics, etc.  for free.

There is also a paid version of Canva, called Canva for Work. There is one feature of Canva for Work that I LOVE!!! That one feature is Canva’s ability to resize my 8x10 designs any other size I want, like a poster, an invitation, a bookmark, etc. I will show you how easy it is in my next tutorial.

Also, with Canva for Work you get more free graphic options.

However, the free version is just awesome for doing all your home and party printables.

 

Please note: You can only use and personalize my printables for your own personal use. Please do not modify it, claim it as your own and then sell it. That would not be so nice of you.

 

Materials for this project:

ADDING ELEMENTS TO YOUR WELCOME SIGN

 

Lets say you love the giraffe with the party hat, but you want to change the pom pom on top of it.. Here is what you do.

 

Click on Elements.

You will see tons of elements that are free and some that are paid. If you want, you can filter it for just free elements by typing free and whatever you are looking for in search. If you have the paid version, Canva for Work, you can just click on free crown icon. Canva for Work offers you more freebies that you otherwise would have to pay if you have the free version.

Using the search box type in firework. Click or drag it onto the canvas.

If you don’t like the firework colors, you can change it to fit your party theme by clicking on the current color and changing it to the one you want.

If you want the firework topper as full as mine, copy it 3 times and then layered them on top of each other, rotating them to how you like them and then group them together. The group function is right next to COPY. Doing this will allow you to move all three layers as one!

You can now download or print this out just like this OR you can:

 

 

ADD TEXT

 

You can add text two different ways. One by clicking on Add a heading, Add a subheading, or Add a little bit of body text. The other way is by using the Canva’s font combination. Canva groups two different fonts together that they feel would make your design pop. I love the Happy Birthday combination, which has the Selima and the League Spartan font. if you don’t like it after putting onto your designs you can always change the font.

 

By the way, the font combination are grouped together. Whatever you type using this font pairing will move together. If you want to move Happy further up and Birthday separately, you need to UNGROUP. This will let you move the two fonts separately.

I added the number 3 to the party hat for a little more personality. Since, I’m only doing a number, I picked Add a heading. Then type the number 3.  I can change its size, color, text using the options on the top left corner. Play with all the options available to you.

BONUS

Lets say you find the above still a little bit too simple and what to add more colors and patterns in the background, like the sign below.

personalized printables confetti giraffe sign

Search for confetti in Elements. Change the color of the confetti if you want it to match your party theme.

 

Now make copies of the confetti and drag it where you want it to go.  You might have to play around with placement of the polkdots so it doesn’t cover the party hat or the words. For the words you can always change the position (upper right corner) to be in front of the polkadots.

 

Do the same for the balloons. Find it in Elements. Copy it to make it across the top of your welcome sign.

Wasn’t that super fun to do?

You made your first cool party printable!

YAY!

If you love this giraffe polkadot welcome sign the way it is, you can download it here and just modify the name. I will omit the name and the number on the hat for you to personalize yourself.
