Have you ever used templates for craft projects before?

Here are some more templates I've designed as well as links to some of my favorite places to find and print out free templates online. These are great for beautiful, personalized cards, party favors, gift wrapping, decorating, organizing, and so many other great things.

You may use my templates for whatever you like and are allowed to sell what you make from them, but you may not sell the templates themselves. If you would like to alter them in anyway and have them available for download please provide a link back here. I would like to see what you have done too, so please let me know! You can check out my other templates on my Hub on Printable Templates for Kid's Crafts.


If you have any requests for templates ask in the comments below and I will be more than happy to oblige :)

Hand Heart Cards

I first saw these on Pinterest and loved them so much I had to give them a try. These templates have been stylized a bit but everyone who has used them so far really enjoys the outcome. They make great Valentine's Day cards, Mother's Day cards, Baby Shower cards, Just-Because cards, or whatever you like.

Butterfly Template

This template can be used for cards for many different occasions, decoration, as a coloring activity, and who knows what else. For valentine's day some of my students cut slits down the center to add a yummy lollipop.

Flower Pieces Template

Here is a template full of shapes you can trace to make paper flowers, perfect for spring cards and decorations or occasions like birthdays or Mother's Day.

Another project you can do with these is one of my favorite painting projects; overlap paintings. You take one or two shapes, and trace them on a canvas board or painting paper. Then you paint it in. You can teach kids about gradients and colour mixing this way (i.e. if two light petals of the same colour overlap will the colour be darker or lighter? If a red petal and a yellow petal overlap what colour will they make?), but it's also just a fun project for all ages (it was very successful with my adult art class).

Sireina Template

Sireina is a baby mermaid I had on my website last summer. This template can be used for coloring mostly, but can be an activity for an under-the-sea party or to customize mermaid party favors for guests.

Fairy Template

This was a design I actually made for a project my mom was working on, "There is no poop fairy." My mom wanted a cute design for them to put on shirts and things, but none of the others seemed interested. So, this drawing has since just been sitting on my computer doing nothing--poor little fairy! I took out the pooper scooper and made a generic wand for the purpose of this template.

You can use this as coloring pages or an activity for a little fairy party or anything you like. I feel better knowing that someone might appreciate this little fae!

To the right is the original poop fairy design, if you would like to post it up for your own poop fairy campaign, please be my guest! It would make my mom and I very happy and I'm sure people will get a kick out of it.

Template Tip

Design your own templates by taking apart boxes or gift bags and copy their design. Once you understand how the design works you can adjust and customize the design.

Block Box Template

I designed this box by taking apart a box I had in my house and adjusting the design a bit to make it more of what I liked. This can be used as a box for gifts, adjust the size for cakes or cupcakes, use it for storage, or you could colour it in and make children's building blocks (that's what I plan to do with them).

The nice thing about paper toys is that you can make as many as you want and when kids get bored with them you can just recycle them.

Scalloped Envelope Template

Here's an envelope I designed with a scalloped bottom. I think it looks pretty when the bottom part is a different colour than the rest of the envelope. I didn't inculde a way to close it but it would be cute with a pretty sticker, or just fine with a piece of tape. These envelopes could be used for any occasion, even for mailing.
