You can make your own holiday cards using EQ6! Download this free EQ6 quilt project to be your card template. Swap out the block using the Set Block tool for one from the library or one that you draw yourself.

Print on heavyweight paper and simply fold the 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper into quarters. You can buy envelopes in large quantities from your local office supply store. The ones that are about 4-3/8″ x 5-3/4″ will fit the folded cards with a little wiggle room.

Like the card idea? How about gift tags too?!

Print as Many as fit can help you there. Just select the block, and print “showing fabrics.”

If you make your block size small (like 2 inches) and put a check next to “print as many as fit” on the Options tab, you’ll get a whole page of gift cards you can cut out.

You can choose whether or not you want the black outlines on or off with the checkboxes on the Options tab for “print block outline” and “print patch outline.” Step by step instructions are on the notecards of the two different quilts in the project.

For the gift cards, print them on heavyweight paper (not just computer paper). Then spray adhesive on them (outdoors, so you don’t breathe it) and sprinkle on glitter. Cut them out, hole-punch the corners, and thread a ribbon through. The plain back side can hold “To: From:” messages.

Have fun!
