My paper feathers are an oldie but a goodie and for the first time I am sharing the SVG file for this design so that you can print and cut them at home on your cutting machine – hooray! It’s a simple design which is brought to life by scoring the center line and adding the gold leaf tips – aren’t they gorgeous? We discovered this gold leaf pen recently and have been adding a little glam to anything we can get our hands on ever since. It’s super-simple to use, especially on paper projects like this, and is the perfect way to dress up your DIY. We used it on our cute DIY leather feather earrings and love the result.
Click on the SVG file below if you have a cutting machine or the PDF file if you will be cutting by hand. We cut our feather templates onto a variety of papers and card stock – including that gorgeous glitter blue. So feel free to try this design on various papers – just note that the shape holds a little better on a slightly thicker paper than ordinary printer paper weight. In this post we have used our gold leaf tipped paper feathers to adorn our gifts but they can also be used to make garlands (post coming up!) or to make a gorgeous paper feather wreath like the one we made here. Use glue, ribbon or miniature pegs to secure these paper feathers to the tops of your gifts and you have yourself a perfectly pretty parcel to give to a loved one.
