This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Canon. All opinions are 100% mine.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Being a mom of 3 littles under 5 can be stressful, but then it comes to times like Christmas and it’s just magical. Experiencing these things all over again through their eyes is unexplainable terrific. It’s my job to create the magic and let me tell you, I couldn’t be more excited about all the things I have planned this year, including these Santa Letters! I partnered with Canon to bring you the printable designs for FREE and everything you need is included. Just download, edit with your kiddos names, print and write! We already filled ours out and sent them off to Santa, because the North Pole is really far away, (said my 5 year old) so in a few weeks they’ll get their Nice List Certificates and I will put both pieces in their keepsake boxes forever, and now I’m crying.
Santa Letter Suite
This set has everything you need, the Santa Letter itself, a Nice List Certificate, mailing labels for both letters and stamps too! Total it will be two 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of paper for each set, or each kid. The only thing you’ll need is envelopes and maybe a little glitter spray!
Our FREE printable designs at the end of the post!
Download + Edit
Download: Visit the end of the blog post to grab our exclusive, free printable Santa Letter items. Once you click on the graphic your download will start instantly, doing it from a laptop or desktop computer is best. Double click to open the .zip file and reveal the two printables, the Santa Letter and the Nice List Certificate with mailer labels and stamps.
Edit: First download the free font Kind and Rich, then also make sure you have Barlow installed on your computer, or download it if you don’t. Then open up Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat to edit the highlighted blue spaces to add your child’s name and address. Save and print!
Use your favorite Canon printer to get the job done. Here I’m using my Canon PIXMA TS9521C Crafting Printer, it’s my everyday printer and my serious crafting printer, all wrapped up in one. For both printable design sheets you’ll want to make sure to select the “US Letter Borderless” option, along with the Photo Paper, Best Quality, I like printing from the Rear Tray, but you can also do the cassette for this printable.
The Santa Letter itself needs no trimming but the Nice List Certificate does. Trim the certificate and two mailer labels down to size.
If you have a pair of wavy scissors, you can dust them off for this project to cut out the stamps, LOL.
Glue the mailer labels and stamps onto their envelopes. The Nice List Certificate will fit perfectly in an A7 sized envelope and the Santa Letter will fold in thirds to slip into a #10 sized envelope.
I sprayed the Nice List Certificate and Envelope with glitter spray. Don’t worry, it dries really quickly.
Note: The glitter is bouncing off my lights and reflecting white so the prints are perfect, but the fuzziness or faded look is because of the glitter!
Write Your Letter
Let your kiddos write their special letter to Santa and put it in the “mail”. Our mailman is very sweet, he took the letter and then slipped it back to my husband on the sly. A few weeks later the magical Nice List Certificate will arrive with a little hand written note from Santa, I seriously can’t wait to give them to the girls!
Crafters Need This Paper
Here I am again, singing the praises of this Double Sided Matte Photo Paper from Canon, it really is the most fantastic. I do all my text prints with regular cardstock and there is such a HUGE difference in the print quality. Even my husband remarked “whoa, that’s a big difference, what do they do to the Canon paper to make it print that good!?” I don’t have the answer, but I don’t need it, I just need the paper because it makes everything I print look absolutely fabulous. If you haven’t tried it, maybe you should put it on your Christmas list!
