button stuck like glue

Here’s another bow tutorial – also designed to survive the pack’n’ship process!

You will need to have the following items on hand:

1.   Wide ribbon (1½” or wider)
2.   Thin ribbon (½” or wider – light wiring looks best)
3.   Accent ribbon (½” or wider – optional)
4.   Glue gun
5.   Xyron 150 “X” Create-a-Sticker Machine
6.   Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hats (optional)
7.   Jingle bells (optional)
8.   Christmas buttons (optional)
9.   Holiday floral picks
10. HB Photo Packaging 5×7″ boxes (wedding white & kraft)


holiday giftwrap presentation photography

First, take your widest ribbon and cut at 14″ long for a 5×7 (½” wide) box. Wrap around the box and hot glue the ends together. (I insert a postcard under the ribbon before gluing to make sure the box is not damaged.

holiday giftwrap photography

Next, take the thinner ribbon and also cut a 14″ piece. Run the ribbon, top side facing up, through the Xyron “X” Create-a-Sticker. (The Xyron machine allows you to take any embellishments – ribbon, paper, chipboard, etc. – up to 1½” wide and turn them into “stickers”.)

Once you have run the entire length of ribbon through the Xyron, tear off paper / ribbon / plastic covering from the machine. Before removing the plastic covering, press down on the entire length of ribbon to make sure the adhesive “sticks” to the back of the ribbon. Then carefully peel off the plastic covering. Your ribbon will be adhered to the “sticker paper” and is ready to be removed. Essentially you have just created “ribbon tape”.

holiday giftwrap photography

Determine the center of your ribbon tape and turn the photo box over, starting on the back. Center the ribbon tape from top-to-bottom and place on top of the wider ribbon, slowly and carefully wrapping it around the box. Go slow and keep it even! Turn the photo box back over and seal ends together on the top / center.

holiday giftwrap photography

Now it’s time to start on the bow! Take your thinner ribbon and cut three additional strips – one 8″ long, one 6″ long, and one 4″ long. If using a separate accent ribbon as shown, cut that length 2½” long. You can also opt to make the entire bow with the same ribbon, and you would cut a fourth strip 2½” long.

Use your hot glue gun to join the ends of each individual ribbon strip, making a “ring”. Flatten the ribbon-rings (in the 8″, 6″, and 4″ sizes), seam side down, and put one small dot of hot glue in the inside-center of the ring and press together – essentially forming a “figure 8″.

holiday giftwrap packages photography

Take the 8″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Center the 6″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Then center the 4″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. You will now press the smallest 2½” ribbon loop on the top-center of the bow.

I chose to hot glue a jingle bell in the center of the top loop on the bow (as shown). You could also use buttons, peppermints, mini candy canes, or scrapbooking embellishments.

Finally run a 2″ line of hot glue along the thin ribbon on the top center of your photo box. Center your bow and press. Remove the postcard once the glue has dried. If using wired ribbon, you can now “fluff” the loops on the bow. Voilà!

holiday giftwrap photography

For this box, I cut the end off of a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat, making it into a “planter”. Before I hot glued the bow on, I hot glued a red berry floral pick underneath. I put a couple of pieces of craft-moss in the “planter” with the red berry “tree” attached inside the hat-planter (under the moss) – carefully using hot glue to adhere all of the pieces.

holiday giftwrapping photography presentation

For this box, I hot glued a Christmas button in the bottom right corner, and then attached a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat on top. My business name is “Buttons and Bows Photography” so this incorporates both elements of that name.

Check out Shelly’s Buttons and More for more package-decoration inspiration! A few of my favorite items are the gingerbread men, holly buttons, snowflakes, and Christmas lights.

button all this—or a mocha frappuccino?

From Black Friday through Cyber Monday (November 26 at 11:59 p.m. EST) the ENTIRE Fit to Print store is on sale again for just $5 – including templates available exclusively here at Paperie Boutique!

Fit to Print photographer marketing templates
The last time we ran this special sale on Paperie was in December 2011!

- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- --¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -

First up, you’ll receive my “Portrait Care Card” and my “Product Guarantee Card” – wording included. These are designed to be printed through WHCC as 5×5 and 4×5 prints.

Included as well are my Referral Program Card, a Referral Program Wallet-Handout, and Referral Program Terms for your website – all with wording included. The first two are designed to be printed through WHCC as 5×5 and wallet prints. The website file is designed to upload to your website so clients and prospective clients can read the full terms of your referral program.

Paperie bonus prizes

referral program

I adhere the 5×5 print to a Paper Source petal envelope, and then adhere a group of wallet-handouts (held together with a bow) to the 5×5 print as shown above. I seal the petal envelope with a 1.5″ circle sticker from Zazzle – you can find a FREE template download for this sticker on Paperie here.

These five layered, editable .psd files are everything you need for a referral and print care / customer satisfaction program. The highly-sought-after templates have never been available for purchase outside of this annual sale!

This special sale also includes my 10-panel pano Client Welcome Kit.

pano welcome kit

Wording is not included. (I suggest this product from “Wordsmith” for that.) However, section-title suggestions are included (and can be easily altered). Text layout is also carefully structured to flow seamlessly around the images in the design. You will replace the “filler” text with your own words, and when you paste your text into place, it will be auto-formatted to stay in place within the design. (One small section of text is provided in section two of the back panel – it discusses model releases and print credit use. This text can be kept if desired or replaced with your own.)

I will also include the vendor of the envelopes I use for the business card panel – the final panel on the back is designed to have an envelope holding business cards attached to the panel, with your e-mail address to request more business cards printed on the actual card below.

All colors can be changed with a click of the button in Photoshop. (This is a layered .psd design created in Photoshop CS2 and should work in Elements, but I cannot provide technical support for Elements purchases.)

BONUS: The $5 special includes FIVE storyboard template designs that are normally not for sale. Quotes cannot be changed (but layer can be hidden / replaced). The background layer color can be changed for each design.

Three designs are 20×10″ full-storyboard designs, one is a 10×5″ mini-storyboard design, and one storyboard design makes a perfect “grandparent gift” to tuck in orders at 5×3.5″.

BONUS: You will also receive my Press-Printed Card Supplement Packet and press-card print release.

announcement pack

These were designed to compliment the Design Aglow “Essential Birth Announcement Worksheet“. Even if you’re not a newborn photographer, if you sell press-printed cards, this product is for you!

Included here are additional birth announcement quotes and religious phrases I have collected, and the press-card print release form I have created, during my six-plus years of being a newborn photographer.

This makes a stunning presentation to your clients, and also makes their ordering much easier, sparing you both countless time spent back-and-forth during the design process.

This download includes three pages of additional quotes and phrases – plus religious quotes / scriptures – for baby boys, baby girls, and seasonal / holiday-themed birth announcements (Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, Fourth of July, fall / autumn, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). And a one-page release for your clients (see below) saving you from expensive reprint costs due to their errors, omissions, or typos on press-printed cards.

additional girl boy birth announcement quotes

shown above – Baby Girl Quotes (left) / Baby Boy Quotes (right)

Announcement Card Signoff and Holiday Quotes
shown above – Press Card Release (left) / Holiday & Seasonal Quotes (right)

My “Press Printed Card Release” (shown below) does include the wording.

This is a form I make all of my clients read and sign off on before their cards and announcements go to print. It eliminates reprints at my expense for their misspellings, typos, and failure to include information. Once this form is signed off on, the customer is liable for the cards or announcements as they approved them (unless the error is a print lab defect or I failed to order the cards as they were approved, for instance if I accidentally submitted the lo-res version for print).

Announcement and Press Printed Card Client Signoff Print App

If you’ve ever been burned with the reprint of an expensive card order – this form is for you! And if you haven’t, you need this now before it happens!

This form wording will work for birth announcements and / or any kind of press-printed card you sell (Christmas / holiday card, birthday invitation, wedding announcement, graduation announcement, etc.)

I use the “Press Printed Card Release” text in an online web form that my customers sign off on digitally. You can print and use the text as presented if you do ordering in person, or convert it for online or e-mail use.

These forms are bare-bones to work within the template by Design Aglow (which I highly recommend purchasing). The one .psd file is divided into four folders of text. The only graphic included is a division line. There are no additional graphics or design-elements. Just the text, ma’am! If you choose to use them as a stand-alone product rather than a supplement, space has been left at the top to add your logo / letterhead to each of the pages.

I have been working on the perfect packaging for awhile and finally decided I wanted to keep things as local as possible. My packaging includes Kraft paper boxes and bags, turquoise & white ribbon and custom button. I also incorporate my custom rubber stamps and embossed them on my packaging.

I decided to create a small spinoff when it came to my holiday packaging but also wanted something simple that everyone could enjoy. So I added 2 simple white snowflake ornaments & silver tissue paper. Nothing better then snow for the holiday!

Entry #22 is from Hold ‘Em Photography. Such a unique, rich color combo!

We wanted our packaging to have a earthy and organic feel, but also wanted a bit of vintage and elegance as well. Paying attention to small details such as creating a custom stamped envelope for our ornate shape business cards lets our clients know from the beginning that their photography experience with us will be anything but ordinary. We are passionate about bringing our clients stories to life with wall displays in their homes and wanted that to start with packaging and marketing materials.

Vendors used:
• Brown boxes – DNL Photo Supply
• Kraft envelopes – Paper Presentation
• Bags and raffia – Beverly’s Crafts
• Ornate cards for brochures – CPQ
• Ornate business cards – Black River Imaging

We also change the photo on the business card with every 20 cards, so it is always a surprise for the client as to which card they will get in their envelope. Clients are delighted when they see one of their photos has made it to our cards, and are happy to pass them out to friends and family.

button oh, Mr. Postman

A few days ago I linked FREE Moo holiday sticker and minicard template downloads for the holidays / Christmas. Moo asked me to create new 2011 templates for their sticker labels and round sticker lines. I was happy to oblige and I’m passing them on here as well!

Below you will find two FREE sticker label templates (one is a holiday-themed mailing label, the other a holiday themed gift label) and FREE coordinating round “postmark” stickers.

UPDATE: There are now separate links for U.S. and UK downloads for those of you who prefer the date (“25″) before the month (“12″) in the design postmark. The flag icons will help direct you to the download-version you prefer.

As promised yesterday (TWO posts here and here if you missed them), we’re kicking things into holiday-gear here at Paperie over the next few weeks. Today’s FREE downloads will help you do the same!

I recently tweaked a free holiday / Christmas card template from last year for the new ProDPI Mod Card line.

ProDPI mod card holiday This design is for a flat 5×7 “Mod” holiday card (front and back for “Roundedcorners01″) for print at ProDPI. (The ProDPI Mod Card flat 5×7 “Roundedcorners01″ crop / bleed guide is included as a hidden layer — in addition to the regular ProDPI flat 5×7 crop / bleed guide, also included as a hidden layer.)

5x7 mod holiday front ProDPI free template
5x7 mod holiday crop ProDPI free template
5x7 mod holiday back ProDPI free template

The files are .psd files (front, back) and the layers can be hidden. However, the text and colors were not designed to be altered.

If you choose to have these printed at another lab, please check the design in that lab’s template guidelines first!

And just in case you missed the original FREE 5×7 flat card posted last year…
