Thank you to GraphicStock for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring these fun printables!
I love printables, especially those that are free! But sometimes I struggle to find exactly what I want online. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the idea of creating your own printables, don’t! GraphicStock makes it easy, no matter what your skill level. My contributing writer Janelle is a graphic designer so she had fun this past week trying out what GraphicStock has to offer, including free graphics. She created this adorable Build a Snowman kids activity. Would you like to learn how to make cut and paste worksheets and other printables with GraphicStock?
GraphicStock has so many fun Christmas and winter DIY stock images/ to chose from.
And because you can get a seven day trial, you can get started immediately creating your own printables with free images! This is a great way to try it out and see the value before committing to a subscription.
Select any graphic and scroll down to see “Similar Images” for more great designs. Many of these would make great holiday greeting cards.
Janelle searched for “scrapbook paper” and found several fun holiday designs with multiple papers in a single download option.
Download an EPS if you’re working in Adoble Illustrator for the most versatile design file with parts you can fully customize and pull apart. Download a JPG or PNG if you’re working in Pic Monkey and want to use the design as-is. GraphicStock offers plenty of designs ready to print so you don’t need to be an expert!
GraphicStock has several designs with varying color options.
Janelle simply cropped this one to a 4×6.
You can print this for an easy home decor or gift idea! Simply add your print to a pretty frame.
She printed this one on photo paper for a glossy design.
Have you ever wanted to make your own treat bag tag?
You can also edit in Adobe Illustrator by moving the title down, changing the text and printing your own treat bag labels.
These were sized to fit my 6 inch treat bags so they only had to be cut out and folded over. Four printed on a single piece of cardstock.
Janelle also created these Build a Snowman Cut & Paste Worksheets.
A pre-designed graphic was customized it to make a cover page for the snowman craft so it easy to package as a gift to a friend.
She pulled the graphics from the bottom off and applied a new headine on the bottom. She used the snowman graphic to add interest to the top and bottom text and put the little hat on his head.
Adjust spacing or add patterns or graphics right from PicMonkey if you’d like.Cut page into strips and then cut each object out. You can use a glue stick or double sided tape, whichever you prefer. You can draw on the arms and any other accessories you’d like.
For a added snow effect, try glitter glue! This is a perfect snowy day activity.
