Free Disney Frozen Printable for Cake Pops

Happy New Year!

My goodness have we been busy at the shop! I haven’t even had the time to write a blog post (last one was six months ago, gulp!).

With that said, here’s a great one to kick off the new year. It’s a printable for cake pops with three of the popular characters from Disney’s Frozen … Elsa, Olaf, and Anna!

Here’s a photo to give you an idea of how you can use them on cake pops. Simply print out the jpeg below on card stock or other sturdy paper, cut out the characters, and tape them to the sticks…so cute!

Cake Pop Tags (Free Printables)

Happy Tuesday! Let’s talk tags.

One of the most popular accessories for cake pops has got to be customized tags.

Tags are little love notes that can be added to the sticks or tied on with ribbon. They’re usually around 2-inches or so and can turn a simple cake pop into the perfect favor. Here are a few we’ve done…

Cake Pop Tags

I’d love to share with you how I make tags and offer a few freebies as well. If you’d like us to create a printable just for you, we offer them on our web-site for $5- per file. Click here.

OK, so the most important elements are color/theme, message, names, and the event date.

Step 1: I find a font that fits the theme. If I don’t have a font in my library already I’ll search www.fontsquirrel.com or similar free font site. Some of my fav’s lately are Alex Brush and Museo. When in doubt, stick with Adobe Caslon Pro!

Step 2: If I need a graphic, I head on over to a (paid) site called shutterstock.com. This site has wonderful graphics for everything from wedding images to baby shower pictures. There are also quite  a few sites out there that offer free clip art, try openclipart.org

Step 3: I create the tags and set up the sheets using Adobe Illustrator (or Photoshop).
You can use Word too. Here’s a Word template for 2-inch tags: 2-inch-Template-Cake-Pop-Tags

Tip! When working with fonts try to keep it to one or two max. Keep it simple. Don’t go nuts with strokes and drop shadows (aka “word art”). The text is small and those design elements will make the message difficult to read.

Step 4: I print the sheets out on glossy cardstock on an HP Photosmart Premium Inkjet Printer.

Step 5: I use a professional Rotatrim cutter for smooth, crisp cuts.

Step 6: I then carefully (test one first!) hole punch the tags with a heavy duty hole punch. We cut a lot of tags so while a hand-held punch will certainly get the job done, this saves our hands from aching!

And…that’s it!

If my method seems a bit complicated, here are some simple shortcuts:

PAPER: opt for readily available cardstock sheets from Walmart or any office supply store (Staples, Office Max, etc.)
HOLE PUNCH: use any hand-held hole punch
CUTTER: I do not recommend scissors. Try (carefully!!) cutting single sheets on a self-healing cutting mat using an x-acto knife and 18-inch metal ruler as a guide.

Free Cake Pop Logos

Quick post for a small audience!

As a designer I’m never satisfied with my work so I often make many, many versions of something before it’s (kinda) right.

With that said, I had a few spare cake pop logos/elements lying around so I thought I’d open up a new category here on the blog called “Freebies”. If there’s a good amount of interest I’ll add more graphics, printables, etc. so check back!

They are yours for the taking. All I ask in return is that you give credit if you use any of them 😀 …no matter how big or small.

You can grab any of the elements off of this PDF. All items are vector (made in Illustrator)–feel free manipulate, change colors, etc.

If you need a small tweak that you cannot tackle just ask.

Have fun!
