    Thank you so much…I love this idea, but was thinking I’ll never get around to creating a template. And then you went and did it for me. : ) I can’t wait to try it. Thank you!!!

    What a great way to pretty up the brown bag wrapping I was going to use! I have some maps that would be perfect for this.

    I actually did this last year for all of my presents, but in Helvetica. Maybe I’ll try Arial this year.

    Well Ariel loves the Ariel font and thinks it’s especially suitable that one of your examples, Aidan, is my son’s name. And it looks like an old map was used to trace his name – he is a map-lover from a long line of map lovers. Such a happy bit of happenstance – your endless creativity is far from a random event though (thanks for the smile).

    Do the templates that you created still exist anywhere? Thanks!

    Celeste, unfortunately when I moved my blog over to Squarespace a few years ago, I lost some files, and this was one of them. You can easily create your own template in any text document creator (such as Word). Just type the alphabet in a font such as Ariel or Helvetica in whatever size you like and print onto heavy cardstock. Lay your template in reverse onto the back side of your patterned paper of choice, trace, and cut out. – Ez
