Feeling festive? Ready to spend a few days eating more than you normally do in a week and watching feel-good kids' movies? Well, before you pootle off to watch Mary Poppins and crack open a tin of chocs, we've just time to squeeze in the last palette pingpong of the year!
You can see the cheerful snap that Kirsty challenged me with over on her blog, ginger and george. And this is the fetching palette I pulled from the pic:
Nice, eh? Reminds me a little of the TV test screen (remember from ye olde teevee days?). Anyhow, what have I done with such a vivid palette you may ask? Well, a couple of things, all freebie printables for you! (Just in case you're not quite sorted with your gift wrap yet, not that I'm saying you're a disorganised bunch!)
I've taken a few of the colours and created two sheets of rectangular and circular tags. These can be used as gift tags or place names at the Christmas dinner table – I've left them suitably blank so you can use them in as many ways as you like.
And because I love the stripy palette I am also giving you a couple of stripy sheets for you to print out and use however you choose! Perhaps as wrapping paper for a small gift or as additional tags (trace round another tag's outline and cut out the shape).
You can download the pdfs and print them on A4 recycled paper or card as many time as you like. All I ask is that you use them for yourself, not for commercial ideas, and if you want to tell others about these printables that you link back to this blog post, rather than just the pdfs.
And before I let you go I just want to say thank you very much. 2011 has been a very exciting year for me and my business, the green gables, and I so appreciate your support, your comments and your general loveliness!
So, have a very merry Christmas!
