Think fast – can you tell me the overall goal of this blog?

Free printables?

Actually, that’s only part of the story. But printables are a large part, yes.

The goal around here is to help you surround your heart and home with God’s Word.

I work towards that goal by …

  1. Sending subscribers free hand-lettered printable verses
  2. Digging deeper into the verses on those printables (blog posts)
  3. Sharing what I’ve learned through Christian book reviews

The free printable I sent to subscribers today is a reader favorite. I keep a running list of my reader’s favorite verses so I can hand-letter it just for them! It’s a small way I like to say thank you for following along.

So, since I send a lot of printables, my long-time, wonderful subscribers have ended up with a large collection of hand-lettered verses.

What do we do with them all?

Where can we find ideas for how to display printables in a unique way?

Answers coming right up!

But first things first. You need to find a storage solution for your printables.

Here are some options for online or computer storage:

  1. Don’t store them. Print immediately, and delete the file.
  2. Save the emails to a folder in your email inbox.
  3. Download the files onto your computer.
  4. Use an online storage provider (like Dropbox, Amazon, Google, etc.)

Now that we have our printables neatly organized and stored all together in one place, let’s brainstorm ways that we can get the most out of them.

How to Use and Display Printables

(I’m going to start with the most obvious ways and get more creative as we go.)

1. Gift Printables

Printable hand-lettered verses make thoughtful as well as inexpensive gifts. Roll it up like a scroll and tie it with a pretty ribbon. Done!


2. Frame Printables

Unique frames can add so much and make your printable look even better. You can even get a frame that opens up so you can easily change out your printable each month – and store the extras in the back.


3. Send Printables

My free printables are sent as a card (and/or 5×7).

4. Clip Printables

I have this gorgeous gold grid hanging in my office. I simply clip whatever verses I want to focus on for the week. It’s also great for displaying the verses you want to memorize.

Or make your own grid!

I also like to clip my printables on a clipboard. This will allow you to change the printable out as often as you like. I change mine frequently for the current holiday or season. All you have to do is lean your clip board on the mantel or shelf – no nails involved!

And there are so many cute clipboards to choose from!


5. Stick Printables

Printables are fun to stick in your journal or planner with washi tape. Most washi tape can even safely stick to the wall!


6. Display Printables

Easels are one of my favorite ideas because you can stack ALL your printables right there. Then you can easily swap out which one is on top.

7. Trace Printables

Use a light box or hold your printable up to a window and trace it into your journal, planner or Bible. Here’s the light box I have.


8. Memorize Printables

Print the verses you want to memorize 4-to-a-page and cut them to make cards to carry in your purse so you can memorize on the go.

9. Hang Printables

Hang your printable between magnetic wooden sticks or cut a slit in a dowel rod.

Or even easier, use pants hangers. They are inexpensive and have a really nice look when you hang them on rods or hooks.

10. Shelf Printables

Add interest to your bookshelf by adding printables. You can always use a frame of course, but there are lots of other creative ways to add printables to your shelves. Like this.


11. Collage Printables


12. Paint Printables

You won’t believe how easy it is to paint your own wood sign using this tracing method. There is even a video for all you visual learners.


13. Cork Printables

PinPix makes some unique bulletin boards to snaz up your office – and printables. And unique push pins are all the rage now.

You can take one of my verse printables and size it down to make tags. You can use tags for more than just gifts – like a bookmark or a basket label. And be sure to snag my free Christmas gift tags already sized and ready to go right here …

You can either tape your printables together like this,

Or you can use one of these card and photo holders …
