Freebie Burlap Chevron Printable (plus tutorial!)

Happy Weekend!!

Today I'm sharing a freebie printable similar to some of our newest digital papers in the shop, as well as a tutorial for a project that you could use the printable for!!

I just love the linen burlap texture, and when you add chevron to it, so cute!

Here's the freebie printable, 8.5x11 in size and 300DPI resolution:
To save, click on the image and it will take you to where you can download it! Look for a "save" button near the top right of the screen.

Here's what I used the printable to create...

If you have the internet, you can make this too (no expensive design program needed here)!! Want to learn how? Read on...

You may already be familiar with PicMonkey, but if not...get familiar with it! It's an awesome website that acts just like a fancy design program, except that it's free! No downloading of programs necessary, no registration required, it's great! Just upload your image onto the website!

You'll find an "edit" button near the top of the website (see blue arrow in pic above).  That's where you'll choose your image to upload and edit.

Once you choose your image, it will open up into the website.

Next step is to crop the image to 8x10, so it will make an excellent printable to put in an 8x10 frame for some friends getting married soon!!

You'll find your navigating menu all the way to the left of the screen, those little icon pictures.  The top left icon is the crop function. Click on that, then you'll see a drop-down menu where you can choose 8x10.

That will create an 8x10 window over top of your image that you loaded in.  Center it within the pattern, then hit the green "apply" button. You now have an 8x10 printable ready to decorate.

From your navigation menu of icons all the way to the left, the next one you'll choose is the butterfly icon, which brings up a menu of overlays.

Scroll all the way down to "Victorian Labels". I chose the fourth label under "basic". {PicMonkey also allows you to upgrade and you'll have access to even more elements, fonts, and other things.  Definitely worth it if you find yourself a regular user of PicMonkey! Everything I'm showing in the tutorial today is a free option.)

I re-sized the label bigger to fill up the majority of the center.  I also took out the white part in the center of the label.  See the little white box to the right of the printable? That shows the two colors that the label is currently, and you can change those by clicking on the color boxes.  I clicked on the white box, then checked "transparent".

Lastly is the text!
You'll find a text icon all the way to the left in that navigation menu.  Looks like a big T and a little t.
I scrolled all the way down to the font called "Playfair Display" and clicked that.  Then click "add text" at the top of that list.

That will bring up a text box you can type in.  You can center it and make it bigger or smaller.

 I typed out the word Williamson. Then I clicked on "add text" again, to add another line where I typed "Est. 2014" and made that slightly smaller than the first word, and centered it.

You'll find the "save" button above your image! I always save it in "Sean" best quality.  Don't want to lose that resolution!

 Here's one of our newest digital paper packs in our shop:

These could also be cropped and used as printable/party invitation/business card backgrounds etc. etc.!
The 12x12 images allow plenty of space for cropping out any size section you need for your project!
These also come as a pack of binder covers/dividers:
You can use the same website (PicMonkey) to type on these and save to your computer!
(Or use colored permanent markers after printing!)

Just be sure to check the listings to see what size you're purchasing, the size is always found in the title of the item.

All of our packs give you access to the images as soon as payment is confirmed via your Etsy downloads page.  Get started on your projects right away.

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, stay tuned for more freebie downloads and tutorials!!
