Craft Wrapping Paper, from Family Christmas Online™

This page contains several files you can use to print color-coordinated wrapping paper for crafts or small packages. If you use card stock and you want to use the patterns for crafts that will show on both sides, you can run the paper through your printer twice and print on both sides. Choose coordinating patterns, like red and tan on one side and green and tan on the other.

Note about Printing - to print these patterns, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader on your system - they're pdf files. That way we can keep them very small; each file is only about 18K. If they were jpg files they would be about five times larger. Doubleclicking on any of the patterns below will give you a page-sized version that should print nicely on most color printers. Don't select the "shrink to fit" option, though.

Note about Margins - Most printers will leave a bit of white space on one one or more edges, so don't feel bad if yours does, too. That's one reason not to select the "print to fit" setting on your printer. I left enough margin that most printers won't cut off the stars anyway.

Note about Ink Usage - Depending on the kind of printer you have, a full-colored, saturated sheet, like the red-and-green combinations will cost you between five and twenty-five cents to print. I have provided these patterns mostly to give you something to use with without having to drive to the store, which will cost you a whole lot more in today's economy. But I do suggest that if you are "just" experimenting, you use one of the "Inksaver" patterns below. They have outlined stars or thin strips on a white background, which will cost you almost nothing to print. When you've decided exactly what you want to do, then go for the deep colors.

Using With Colored StockIf you have light brown card stock, using any of the "white background" papers should give you a primitive "hand-printed" look. Other combinations are possible, as long as the paper's color is fairly "light." Construction papers and other specialty papers may not take the ink evenly. Usually this is okay if you're going for a classic homemade or country look. But before you take on a huge project with specialty paper, try a single sheet to make certain it will have the right effect.

About Permissions - These are for your personal use. You can also print multiple copies for a children's or seniors project, say at home, school, Sunday school, or the Senior Citizens center. If you DO use these sheets for such a project, please get a couple digital photos we can use to illustrate these resources in action for a good cause. You may also sell craft items that you made using these sheets. (Again a photo would be nice, and might bring you some business.) On the other hand, you may not sell the sheets themselves or publish these patterns in any form, on paper, or on the web. Please contact me if you have any questions about permissions or usage. Or if you need a different color combination - I might be able to provide it fairly easily.

Microstar Patterns - We only had the patterns above posted a couple of days before we tried a craft project that required a smaller pattern. So here are our "microstars." Use the "best quality" printing option on your computer to get the best results. If you need these patterns printed even smaller, say for a dollhouse, you can usually tell the print utility to print at 50% or whatever.
