Watercolor Magnolia Bunting set two + how to print
Decorating for Easter + beyond
Here is set two from the Watercolor Magnolia Bunting collection + under you’ll find a how to print video.
This is the larger set of what I published yesterday. It’s sized to fit A4 paper (letter size) and has a black line on the edge that will help if you are using a paper cutter (something I recommend).
I’m lucky to have an old fashion, reliable paper cutter for getting straight lines on the sides. The fishtail I cut with scissors. Seriously, a good paper cutter I recommend highly! I use mine all the time and don’t know what I’d do without it.
Below you’ll see yesterdays post, cut + hung. Since I didn’t have any thick paper at the moment, I tore into an old unused photo album. I literally tore out some pages, cut them with my oh so handy paper cutter to standard A4 size and placed them in my printer tray.
While printing I accidentally left a piece of that delicate paper (I think it’s called glassine protective sheet) between some of the paper sheets and boy am I glad! My printer had no problem with it and those prints are so lovely and delicate! I quickly tidied all the sheets I’d tossed aside earlier because I am now purposely going to be using them.
For these I deliberately cut the top (straight lined edge) off precisely because I knew I was going to use miniature clothespins to hang them.
Note: for the delicate paper I used pins.
If you’d like you could cut above the top line so that you can fold them over the string and tape them.
A summary of how + what
- download files
- unpack the .zip file
- open the files to your printing program (I use Windows default program)
- print in the size you’d like (if you want smaller prints you could print two of the same at one time)
- cut (leave a small margin on top if you wish to fold the print over the string)
Tip! Hang dried or fresh flowers or greenery between the prints.
I’m going to hang greenery between mine on Easter (I’ll share them here or on IG). I hope you like them and if you make something could you please share here, or on Facebook? Tag them #acreativemessproject
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week… half way through it already (if you’re lucky to have the weekends off that is).
