Christmas Is Coming: Part 5

Here it is.  The conclusion of a great week of finds.  Since everybody loves FREE printables I am rounding up a few more.  Some can make great gifts and others tags to put on the gifts.  I am always so amazed and thankful for the amazing artists who so generously design these pieces and then give them away for free.  Make sure to visit their sites and give them a big thank you!  And if you like finding printables like these, follow me on pinterest to see what else is out there.

Have a christmas party to attend and need something for the kiddos to do?  How about giving them this fun nativity to cut out and put together.  They were designed by illustrator Marloes di Vries.  There are two versions, one with color and one without so you can fill it in yourself.

Here are some adorable sewing cards that I intend to print for my son’s stocking.  They were created by Kate on Minnieco.  I’ve already got some yarn and a yarn needle lying around.   You should check out the tutorials on there too.  Such beautiful pictures of fun projects.

A is for adorable.  These next two are alphabet pictures and they don’t come any cuter!  The first set of cards is from The Handmade Home.  They would be fun to give all tied up in a bow for a child who is learning their letters or to use as nursery art.  Her site is full of free printables that are simply gorgeous.  The second picture which also has a matching number picture is from Sprik Space.  They have 8 background colors to choose from!

I love these sweet book plates.  Giving books as a gift is always wonderful and how great would it be to include a set of these from Sweet Jessie.

Owls are all the rage these days.  And calendars are always a popular gift at the end of the year.  So, why not combine the two by creating your own owl calendar.  45 artists have graciously given a piece of owl art to the “Owl Lover 2012 Calendar” over at My Owl Barn.  That means you get to pick out your very favorites to make a custom calendar.  Love it!

Now for tags for all those lovely gifts you’ll be giving.

First up are some sleek, modern tags from Jones Design Company.

For a bit more whimsy try the tags from Eat Drink Chic.

Over at Made By Joel there are two kinds of tags.  The first, designed by Lisa Mundroff, are a candy and cookie theme.  The second, designed by Joel, are blank so you or your kids can color them in.

How about some that aren’t as traditional.  Head over to How About Orange to get them.

Not enough variety for you yet?  Martha Stewart has got you covered.  They’ve got over 50 tags and labels for you!

Ok, folks!  I am tired.  And there is still so much to get done before this year ends.  Hope you all have a great weekend!  We were supposed to go to the Trail of Lights in Wimberley tonight for our advent calendar but it has been raining the last few days.  Hopefully we’ll fit it in before the holidays.  For anyone in the area I HIGHLY recommend it!  Tomorrow we’re making some easy treats for the neighbors.  What are you doing this weekend?  Any fun plans?

  1. I love that you’ve done all this work for me! :D My big two are totally making that manger scene before Christmas. The Big One will LOVE LOVE LOVE doing it! Thanks Joc!!

    • Well, it was a lot of work! I don’t know how people blog everyday! But I am happy to do it if it helps people get some good ideas without a lot of money or stress. That’s great that your girls are going to make it. I think it would be fun to make them and also then to play with them afterwards. You’ll have to let me know which things you end up making.
