Creating elegant Thanksgiving party decor is going to be an easy task using these digital papers inspired by Fall. The papers are scrapbooking size, 12 x 12 inches, however you can print them at home onto regular 8.5 x 11 in. cardstock or photo paper.
How to print 12×12″ digital scrapbooking papers onto 8.5 x 11″ photo paper.
You can print using the built-in software in your computer. If you have Windows, go to the folder you received when you purchased the digital papers, then click on the paper you want to print, right click and select print, then choose the following settings:
- Select your paper size: in this case I’m using letter size photo paper.
- Printing quality: I like to select “best” so that I can get the exact bold color I picked when I designed the paper, however if you select “normal” you will also get a good quality print but the colors will be a tiny bit lighter than the original design.
- Paper type: I love the results I get when I use glossy photo paper. White cardstock can also work but the colors will be darker and less vibrant.
- Size: I choose fit picture to frame, that will print the entire page rather than reducing the size of the pattern.
Here is how this pattern looks printed:
Once you printed the pattern you can create all sort of party decorations such as boxes, cards and labels, for example the goodie box shown below, was created by Keisha for Mygrafico party impressions. She used the houndstooth pattern to create the labels, then she used a piece of the leaf pattern to make the wrap, these papers look great combined with any rustic wrapping paper and paper craft or natural raffia ribbons.
Combine patterns and print them out, then use templates, punch boards or your cutting machine to create your designs, the possibilities are endless and many designs are easy enough to make with your kids. The patterns included in this kit are fun and easy to mix and match.
You can also mix and match elements from different digital papers, stickers and clipart sets like shown below. Please note, the cards are sold separately.
