It's Freebie Time

Hello everyone!  I'm always trying to think of new and interesting things to share with you all.  Did you know that?  Actually I spend a huge amount of my daily existence thinking about you and musing upon how lucky I am to have each one of you as readers.  The support and inspiration you give me every day truly touches my heart... it really does!  So thank you.

Anyhowwwww... I thought it was about time for a new freebie, so I've created these fun printables for you all to enjoy.  I love vintage books, library cards, card catalog files (oh what I wouldn't give for one of those babies), so here you have: 

  • Library Card Pocket Template
  • Printable Standard Library Cards
  • Printable Mini Note Cards (they fit inside the library card pockets) and are perfect for stashing in lunch boxes or using to top a gift)

I especially love the idea of using these as seating cards at a wedding or event.  Stamping each of the library card pockets with a number (or the guest's name) and then tucking a mini menu or program inside!  Perfect!

To read directions for use and to download...

{DIRECTIONS FOR USE} - Library Card Pocket

  1. Print template at 100% onto cardstock
  2. Cut out template along the outer lines
  3. Place template on top of a plain or patterned sheet of paper (heavyweight paper works best, but you can use other paper as well).  If your paper has a pattern be sure to place it pattern side down.
  4. Trace template onto your paper using faint lines with a pencil and cut out
  5. Fold paper where shown on the template (along the dotted lines) starting with number 1 and finishing with number 3.
  6. Glue the flaps (labeled on the template as number 3) using a glue stick.
  7. Taa-daa

  • Inspirational words left for unsuspecting patrons at your local library or book store
  • Gift tags
  • Seating cards at your next party (even better if it's for your book club)
  • Just because they are cute and oh so nostalgic!
