More Chevron Print Ideas for Parties

I’ve talked about the super popular “chevron print” before, and I just keep seeing it, so I decided I should share a few more ideas…

It’s a little bit late for an Olympic party, or a 4th of July party even, but for someone who likes the idea of an Americana Chevron print party, here are some great photos for you, from Hostess blog:

Fab Friday FREE Printables – Chevron Baby Shower tags

Today’s FREE printables are designed with the very popular chevron style theme – and they are BABY shower tags!

These free printable tags are 2 inches round, and come 20 to a sheet.  The download is in a PDF format file.  Just download, print, and then cut.  (We recommend a circle punch, like THIS ONE, but scissors work too!  Punches are low cost and once you have one you’ll find zillions of reasons to use it)

You can punch a hole and add tags to your a gift or favors with string or ribbon… or use the design as a cupcake topper.  If you decide to print them on STICKER paper, these will make great seals for favor bags or boxes too!

You can DOWNLOAD THE PINK VERSION HERE

And DOWNLOAD THE BLUE VERSION HERE

Happy Friday!
