Those are so cute. I hope you don't mind if I use your idea. The snowman ones went over really well but think they ran thier course so maybe this one could fill in. Good job.

Penny, those are so cute! Thanks so much for sharing! I hope you sell out at your shows. I've also done the snowmen for a few years now & was surprised at how well they still sold last year. I feel like the snowmen have run their course. So I've also been trying to come up with some new ideas if I still want to sell the popcorn. I need to get at the drawing board! I also saw some cute printables for the popcorn wrappers at Ewe n Me.

I tried printing the page off but it don't seem to come out right, is there something I am doing wrong.? It comes out on the vertical way on the paper where it should come out the horizontal, right ? Boy I am not good at computers at all and with this stuff. Hope someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.
I would really like to do this one. Thanks

Linda, I think the problem would be that you would have to right click on the picture and save it to your file then print it off from there? I to am NOT a computer person, so maybe I'm wrong?

Those are adorable, I must have missed the snowmen. What do you put inside? I see they are called poppers, for popcorn?

Ohhhhh, these must print big enough to hold an entire microwave bag of popcorn, right? Sometimes I am a bit..... slow! LOL

Hi everyone! Well, as far as I'm aware you have to right click on the image click on " Edit " and this will take you to paint. Then at the top where it says image click there and go down to stretch/skew click that now a box will come up saying 100% Horizontal and vertical. You can make your image smaller/bigger by changing these numbers. Try 75% in each box. Most of my work I wait for my daughter to do but she is slowly training this old dog to do new tricks. LOL Emphasis on " SLOWLY " LOL After you get it to whatever size you need then save it to your files by clicking on the file and " save as " I hope this is write and you have no troubles??????

Hi Penny,

I hear you. lol I know nothing about computers and usually have to have my niece show me how to do things. I think sometimes she figures it is easier for her to do them than to show me. lol I am still messing with what you said and somehow it is not working for me, but I am sure it is something I am doing. I think I am gonna give in and call her to come rescue me. lol Thanks so much for sharing.

Linda

Thank you so much. Have made the snowmen and also Santa but like the others, think they have run their course. Was able to print out the image and was also able to work it on my e-mail program that was able to print two to a sheet. printed out 8 to a sheet of the labels but will have to work with that as the printing came out too small for the average person to read. I don't usually save any thing like this to a file just to work from. sometimes my computer makes things smaller when trying to reprint from a file. When I have images or labels like I want them I print them out and call it a master sheet. Then when I want any I just put the master sheet in the scanner and click on "copy" and make as many as I want. Now to find the right shade of green paper and mini Santa hats. Thought I could work with this image and make it smaller and use it as a guide to paint green glass ornaments.

Does anyone know where you can find these hats? Or does anyone have the measurements of these hats and maybe I can make my own. Thanks!

When you click Print a menu opens that you usually click okay. Before clicking Okay select Printer Properties or Printer Options click that and select landscape. The picture will print correctly.

Thank you. I did get my niece to help me and it worked out fine. Now I am not doing my show this year so won't get to make them. I was so looking forward to it. Oh well maybe next year. This year has been really rough, I lost two brothers within the last 3 months, both were sick and I helped out as much as I could so was not able to craft like I normally do, but I am so glad I helped when I was needed. IU hope the girls who make these will let us know how they went over, I think they are so cute.

Linda

These are cute but I can't afford more printer ink now so maybe next year.

So very sorry to hear about your brothers paint. I know how you feel since my sister died not too long ago and I'm now dealing with my Mother's illness. P's for you.
