Thanks for all the love we received regarding our Meant To Be Calligraphy & SHIMTOKK collaboration. We are excited to see how you use the beautiful calligraphed goodies to brighten up your holiday packages. We thought we would show you a few ways to use our printables. If you're new to the wonderful world of printables here are a few helpful hints.

P R I N T A B L E  T I P S

1. Download our Meant To Be Calligraphy for SHIMTOKK printables here.

2. The file is nine pages and contains calligraphed gift tags/labels and cards as well as other calligraphed phrases that you can use for a variety of purposes. 

3. For the cards and gift tags we like to print on heavy white or kraft cardstock which you can find at your local paper supply store. For the gift labels we print on white sticker paper which is available at office supply stores.

4. If you do not have a printer at home take the file to your local print shop and they can make copies for you. If you are printing from home make sure your print quality is on the highest setting for the best results.

5. If you want mini gift tags/labels or cards fiddle around with the print size in your printer options (e.g., booklet style, shrink file options).

6. Once everything is printed trim the gift tags/labels and cards with a paper cutter or X-acto knife. 

7. For the gift tags or labels  trim the top angled edge to make a rectangular gift tag or label.

1. Download our Meant To Be Calligraphy for SHIMTOKK printables here.

2. Print your favorite holiday gift tag/label on to white sticker paper.

3. Cut out the gift label and trim the top angled edge using a straight edge as a guide.

4. Unpeel backing of label and place it on a kraft cookie bag (you can find these on line with a quick search) or glass bottle (the one we used is from Ikea).

5. For the cookie bag: fill the bag with your favorite holiday sweet treats, close bag and tie a ribbon around the top.

6. For the glass bottle: fill the glass bottle with apple cider or your favorite beverage.
