Merrrry Christmas from me and HowDoesShe! We have a little gift for you! After releasing our free printable Halloween banner kit, we heard from SO many of you who said “we love it! Can you make one for Christmas, too?” – well, for you? Of course! : )

I designed the printables using a true red and a modern, preppy green, and the gals from HowDoesShe made Christmas magic with their amazing photos and fab styling ideas. I absolutely love the banner pieces displayed with the stockings!

There are printable circles included with pre-printed dates so that you can display your special family photos. Or, you could leave the dates off to display all of this year’s photos from friends and family!

This is a great idea – you can use pieces from the banner kit as sweet and simple gift packaging!

SO CUTE! This just makes me want to sing a Christmas carol! ; )

These are all the pieces you can print and assemble together in different combinations! There are loads of mix and match options here. The kit includes:

• Banner pieces in several patterns that leave space for a 4″x6″ photograph (horizontal or vertical)
• Large letters that spell “Merry Christmas”
• Words and phrases (like “tis the season” and “deck the halls”)
• 2.5″ printable circles with dates
• 2.5″ printable circles that say “Merry Christmas”
• 2.5″ printable circles with snowflakes
• 2.5″ printable circles (blank, so you can write in your own text or zazzle ’em up as you like)

    What kind of printer do you use? When I print out stuff it sucks all my ink down and isn't as bright and yours seems to be!

      Hi Mandy! You get much brighter colors if you can have the files printed on a laser printer. Here's how How Does She did it:

      "I printed mine at Office Max for about $.50 per page because my printer was acting up – so even if you don’t have a color printer of if you just want the colors to really POP – call around and find a good deal on color prints. They make it easy for you...upload the file, tell them which pages to print then go pick it up! They will even ship it to you if you want, and can wait."

      I hope this helps! : )
