Santa's Snail Mail Bag | Alternative to Wrapping Paper | DIY Reusable Mini Gift Bag | Pretty Peas Paperie

Happy December! Is it just me or does your Christmas shopping list double once you have a kid? Our adults-only list has suddenly grown to include entire families, friends' babies, godchildren, and furbabies. I was trying to think of some fun stocking-stuffer-type trinkets to tie to gift cards, and came up with this idea as I was styling a photo for one of our Christmas stamps. (I'm 100% sure someone else has probably done this, but I made you a free printable to make it easier!)

Here it is :: a mini coloring kit!

By the way...how amazing is the donut seal?! I discovered that you can hole punch glue gun sealing wax. (!!!) Simply make your seal ahead of time, rather than apply it directly to your envelope. Squeeze the wax onto a non-stick pan, wax paper, or parchment paper...press your wax seal stamp down, and let dry. (It's quick.) Then, use a standard hole-punch to make your donut hole!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! Thanks so much for your entries! We'll notify the winner soon. :)

Free Printable | Envelope Liners

Envelope liners are the perfect way to spruce up your snail mail, and today I'm sharing 6 free designs that you can print from home!

This philodendron pattern paired with a coral envelope makes me want to go on vacation.

These little snails are doing a fine job of delivering their mail.

Cacti can look so sophisticated in black, white, and blush.

Donut worry...I have an envelope liner (and wax seal) to satisfy your sweet tooth!


Supplies Needed:

  • Envelope Liner PDF (download above)
  • A printer
  • Matte photo paper or text-weight paper (1 8.5″ x 11″ sheet per liner)
  • Envelope Liner Templates to match your envelope (my favorites are from Paper Source)
  • Scissors
  • Double-Sided Tape

As always, these printables are free for personal use only and may not be redistributed, copied, or sold. Please share the project with a link to this post. Tag us on Instagram with @prettypeaspaperie, #prettypeaspaperie.


Assembly is easy-peasy, but here are some notes:

1. Print the liner of your choice on a sheet of matte photo paper or text-weight paper. (Super thick paper won't fold very well.) Use your high quality (or photo quality) print setting for best results. Note :: Each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet fits 1 liner.

2. Using pencil, lightly trace around your envelope liner template.

3. Cut out the envelope liner.

4. Slide the liner inside the envelope and place it where you want it. Fold your envelope to crease the liner. NOW, remove the liner and put a small piece of double-sided tape near the top of it (on the back, of course). Slide the liner back in, make sure it's placed correctly, then stick it! (I don't recommend putting tape on the bottom portion of the liner because it will crinkle when you fold the envelope. A single piece of tape allows the liner to move a bit as the envelope is closed and sealed.)

Stick around because I'm about to post a GIVEAWAY!

Free Printable | Modern Cactus-Themed Valentine's Day Cards

Free Printable | Modern Cactus-Themed Valentine's Day Cards by Pretty Peas Paperie

Can you believe February is right around the corner?! Plan ahead for Valentine's Day this year with my cactus cards!

If you follow Akula Kreative (my design studio) on Instagram, you might recognize the prickly plants from several posts back. "Draw cacti" had been on my Do-When-You-Have-Time List for months until I fiiinally had a chance over Christmas to make it happen. Originally, I wanted to use the cactus pattern to make custom fabric for our house—which I still might do—but for now, they work perfectly for printable cards.

These small cards are super easy to make: just print, cut, and fold! They fit inside a standard A2 envelope and measure about 4" x  5.125" when folded. The best part is, you have two versions of each design to choose from: one is fully designed and ready to go (top row in the photo below), and the other is plain and ready for stamping (bottom row in the photo below).

Free Printable | "I love [cact]us." Valentine's Day Card by Pretty Peas Paperie

Assembly is pretty self-explanatory, but here are some notes:

1. Print the PDF on a sheet of matte photo paper or card stock. Use your high quality (or photo quality) print setting for best results. Note :: Each 8.5″ x 11″ sheet fits 2 cards. The PDF is composed of 3 pages: page 1 is "I love [cact]us," page 2 is "chicks before pricks," and page 3 is "let's cuddle."

2. Using the solid trim lines on the PDF, cut out your cards. If you plan on stamping, I recommend doing that before folding.

3. On the samples, I used Paper Source text weight paper in Luxe Blush and stamped with a Versafine ink pad. (Remember that the more textured your paper is, the harder it will be for detail to come through. Luxe blush paper has a textured, cotton-like finish, so if you use that you might notice some loss in detail with your stamps.)

Free Printable | "Chicks before pricks" Valentine's Day Card by Pretty Peas Paperie

I had SO much fun making these...from the hand-lettered cactus puns to the limited edition stamp set! Oh, and speaking of stamps, I only made a handful of these cactus cuties so you better grab 'em while you can. The set of 3 is $50 and comes with a BONUS stamp! Click here to shop the Etsy Pop-Up.

Have fun and hope you enjoy my cacti!

Free Printable "Musu-Bi Mine" Mini [Modern] Valentines

Free Printable | "Musubi Mine" Mini Valentine Spam musubiThis year's Valentines printable is a modern take on one of my favorite childhood snacks :: Spam musubi (pronounced "MOO-soo-bee" - not "moo-SOObee," Andrew Zimmern). If you're unfamiliar, Spam musubi is a beloved Hawaiian snack made of nori (seaweed), rice, and spam. In my family, musubi is a coveted staple brought to holiday potlucks and birthday parties. The second it gets set down on a table, you can expect it to disappear within ten minutes. Mmmm.

Happy Valentine's Day, fellow Pacific Islanders!

These miniature cards are a breeze to make: just print, cut, and fold! They fit perfectly in a coin envelope and sit nicely atop a fresh musubi.

2. Using the marks on the PDF, trim your cards. Each flat card measures 4" wide by 3.5" tall.

3. Fold each card in half.

4. If you want to give the card some texture, use glitter glue to mimic grains of rice.
