Printable Apple Paper


This week, I've got some back to school sorts of things planned here on the blog, and I'm really excited about them! Hopefully you will be too...

To start, how about some Apple Paper? I've designed this with primary lines, plus a version without lines. Both are in the PDF. They're great for handwriting practice, notes to the teacher, drawing, and more!

Printable Apple Paper


Today is a freebie for you, but with some help for me. (This is my poor job of sneakily working in some market research!) I received a request from someone to make printable paper for my shop. The idea would be frames or borders with my little characters, which people could print, then either write on, or run through their printer again, or even import into Word.

So my questions for you are these:

1: Would this type of item (with say, 8-10 page styles, both lined and unlined) be useful to you?

2: What features would be important to you?

3: What kinds of of my characters and designs would you like to see on something like this?

If you could answer one or all of those for me, I'd love you even more than I already do!

  1. Eeep! So cute! I'd love to see sewing/crafting related characters. I'd use them for plotting out and organizing my future sewing projects.

  4. Mollie,

    The paper idea is great! Yes, this kind of paper would be useful to me. No, I don't have any suggestions on a different set up as what is pictured, with or without lines, is fine. And, any Wild Olive designs would be great. How about your weather patterns?

    I like the lined paper and like the primary lines but also I would use it with college rule lines. It is very fun for homeschooling. I think it would cute to have seasonal things, (orange maple leaf, pumpkin, gingerbread man, heart, patriotic star, spring birds/flowers, bomb pop, seashell, honey bee/skep) Also, there are lots of things that are darling with the smiley face but sometimes, they are just weird. Fruit with faces? Adorable. Neckties with faces? Weird. I wish I could qualify it more for you, but unfortunately I can't. Good luck!

  6. I disagree with anonymous. Neckties with faces are fabulous. Besides, smiling faces is the Wild Olive signature style. :)

  7. Thanks for making this available, Mollie! I like this idea, and agree with using college ruled lines as well for older students. As for designs, I'm not sure, but I know that my son likes robots and monsters (not the scary ones) and rocket ships and the odd octopus or two. Butterflies and bugs are always good. Or something relating to bible stories (such as rainbow, big fish/whale, sheep, harp, star)?

  8. Love this! I would be happy to see your doughnuts, owls, and crafting/sewing notion buddies on some of these. I would print them out and stick them on my fridge for to do list and things :) Also, have you thought about doing a blank calendar page? One that I could just fill in the numbers for each month? I would buy it!

    Also, neckties with faces are cute! Don't listen to anonymous.

  9. I admit that some of the characters that I draw are a little weird. And that's after weeding out the really strange creations! The fact is, I just really like adding faces to things!

  10. These are too cute. You should have some other ones like cherries, grapes or some other fruit. You could have a whole line of stationary.

  11. I would love to see 2 on an 8 1/2x11 page...that would be ideal for stationery or little notes (but maybe smaller lines then?) I love all of your designs, so as far as I'm concerned, a face can go on anything ;)

    I think thips paper is cute. I could see where this or "college ruled" paper would be cute. I like the monthly designs that you put out for wallpaper. That would be cute on paper. Then you can change with the seasons.

  13. Yes, these would be useful to me. I have family overseas who like the emails, but LOVE when I send a hand-written letter or note. And I like Kimberly's suggestion above. :)

    I like the lines, as I will likely send some (with envelopes) to my nieces (ages 5-14)so that they can write letters.

    The animal designs are all adorable and would work so well on stationery!

  14. Ooh these would make lovely home-printable stationery for letter writing. The only thing I would say about features is keeping them very useable - not too much space taken up by pictures etc. So many of your designs are adorable that I can't think of any that wouldn't work in this format!

  16. This is adorable! I would definitely use these for all of my classes and work if the lined version were college ruled rather than elementary school type lines.

    It would also be fantastic as calendar/planner pages.
