Printable Christmas Wrapping Paper

minimal hand-lettered holiday gift wrap | free download

I'm slowly making progress on my gift shopping, which is a huge improvement and a bit of a relief compared to where I was a few days ago. To be honest, I am doing the majority of it online this year, since I only lasted about an hour during an unsuccessful outing over the weekend. I'm fairly patient when it comes to traffic and mobs of people, but combine that with a cold and let's just say I would have been better off if I had stayed in bed.

I did however manage to snag some festive gift wrap. I typically go for more subdued tones at the holidays, but thought a bold pattern would be a fun alternative this year. I went ahead and created this pretty hand-lettered gift wrap to compliment it and turned it into a free printable for you to use as well. There are two sizes available for download depending on your printer's capabilities. Hopefully it makes you just as excited as I am to wrap your gifts.

Also, as a reminder, I am hosting a Holiday DIY Workshop tonight at the Market by Foxtrot from 6-8pm. We'll be making poms, tassels and paper ornaments to give your gifts and decor an extra special handmade touch this season. There are still a few spots available if you would like to join us.

Free Download: XO Valentine's Day Cards and Gift Wrap

Free Valentine's Day Printables | Evermore Paper Co.

Yesterday I spent most of the day creating hand-painted textures and lettering for some new designs. After hours of scanning and digitizing my work, I grew a little restless and decided to turn some of my lettering into these cute greeting card and gift wrap printables for Valentine's Day. I love the simplicity of this pattern and hope it'll help you add a sweet little touch to your notes and gifts this Valentine's Day.

Each download is available as an 8.5" x 11" PDF. I recommend printing the greeting cards on thicker card stock. You can use the trim marks as a guide when cutting to the final size of 8.5" x 5.5". Once cutting is complete, fold the card in half. For the gift wrap, I recommend using copy paper to make wrapping easier.

DIY Embroidered Tote Bag

Postal Tote // Evermore Paper Co.

This tote has been sitting in a box in my office for quite some time. Recently, it came in very handy as I was lugging a bunch of orders to the post office. I decided why not put it to regular use, but with a little upgrade of course. So I put my tiny hands to work embroidering some cute postal markings. I even gave it a personal touch by including the date I launched my Etsy shop. I love how it looks now and I can't wait to skip off to the post office with it now. 

Stamp Happy

I think one of the best investments I've made for my business was getting a custom stamp made with my logo and website. It's no joke when I say I use it on everything. Each of my cards are hand-stamped on the back and I also have the tendency to cover my packaging and anything else I can get my hands on with it. I've been looking to expand my collection and am loving the availability of options for both personal and business uses. From return address and packaging stamps to customized business card and save-the-date stamps, these beauts are a practical and cost-effective option when compared to printing . . . A win-win in my book!

I've been working on some custom projects lately and have become quite smitten with adding envelope liners to the end result. It's such an easy upgrade to make to an invite suite and always a nice surprise for the recipient. I also love how it allows you to express your style even further. I've created my own templates and thought why not share them with you. They'll fit most 4 bar, A2 and A7 envelopes, especially those from Paper Source. You can download the templates and directions here. And since I love looking at pretty paper, please feel free to tag your results with #evermorediy.

Textile Wall Hangings

I am currently obsessing over textile wall hangings. It seems like these yarn, wool, woven, and tassel beauties are popping up everywhere lately. I love seeing an artisan craft like this make a revival and I'm currently eyeing a big ol' wall in my office that would make the perfect home for one. I'm hoping my DIY skills are up for the challenge because I think it would be really fun to make one myself. Meanwhile, here's a look at some work from the pros and a few tutorials for making your own:
