Summer Floral Gift Tags | June 22, 2010

On this side of the world we are entering the depths of winter. Cold and Grey. Dark and Rainy. Don't get me wrong it's not all bad. 'Tis the season of hot chocolate, toasty warm fireplaces and blanket snuggles. But I still prefer the summertime. I miss the sunshine.

Inspired by the enviable weather in the opposite hemisphere and some vintage floral fabric designs, I've created these summer-themed gift tags which I'm sharing with you all. Bright and cheerful, I've personally found these designs uplifting during this dreary season.

Regardless of whether you're actually heading into summer or you're simply dreaming about it you might find these little tags come in handy for decorating homemade drinks, gift packages, wedding favours, bunches of flowers... whatever you can imagine.

Please read the Guidelines for Use at the bottom of this article before downloading the above file. The PDF provided contains three colour versions of the tag with summer-themed messages, including "Sun-drenched Days and Starlit Nights" quoted from a book by Gooseberry Patch.

Print the design onto thick white, textured card. Use a scalpel to cut out then use a small round hole punch in the center of the solid coloured circle.

Alternatively, I've also provided floral tags without any text. These are customisable so that you can create your own little message.  The font I've used for this is Traveling Typewriter and it's available for free here. Download and install the font, use a word processing program to type out your message, print onto white paper then use a scalpel to cut out your message and stick onto the tag with glue or double-sided tape.

GUIDELINES FOR USE:  The downloadable pdfs in this article (and across my entire site) are free for personal use only. They are not for commercial use. If you wish to incorporate any of my designs in your own personal projects, please attribute it to me by linking to my site. Please do not distribute any of my downloadable files. If you wish to blog about this article, you may use my photos provided this is accompanied with a credit and link back to my site and/or this article. As a courtesy please do not link directly to a downloadable file but rather to this page.  Thanks for reading this boring footer stuff! :)

  66. Jennifer | Sep 21, 2012
    Hi I was just wondering how do you print the designs onto thick white textured card? Do I need a certain printer or do I need to go to printing store that can do that for me?
  67. Hi Jennifer- if you go to a specialist paper store or paperie, they should have a variety of printable paper of varying thicknesses available. There should also be textured and smooth options for these. For this project, the thicker the paper, the better, in my opinion and whether you want it to be textured or not is up to your own taste. A home inkjet printer should work fine. I find that inkjet printers are more tolerant of thicker stock than laser printers. Always best to double-check that the paper is inkjet printer-friendly with a staff member before buying it.

    I know I'm a little behind the times :) but just discovered your site and it's BEAUTIFUL. Love it all!
    I'm attempting to recreate these and was wondering where you got your hole punches from? My normal one isn't long enough and the only 'long reach' ones I can see online are funny shapes. Thanks!
