Get lots of layout designs, collage and craft templates!
You’ll find these templates useful for many of your arts and crafts.
They’re handy for projects of all kinds, including scrapbooking, greeting cards and flyers.
And all of our templates here are all free!
A great craft or art project — whether scrap booking, greeting cards, collages, paintings, etc. — begins with a strong layout design. Sometimes it’s just hard to know where and how to put things in to create a good design. Here are some free templates you can use for all kinds of arts and easy craft ideas. There are three sizes to choose from. They can be reduced to smaller sizes as well, to fit onto other formats such as small art canvases or boards.
These collage and craft templates can be used for many ideas.
The segments within each template are guidelines in which to place photos, mosaic materials, beads, paint, items form nature, or a mix!
And don’t forget to do something creative with the borders. They don’t have to be just boring lines. How about painting them, using fabric puffy paint, adhesive faux “lead,” create a look of vines, use real reeds, shoelaces, ribbon, yarn, etc.
And think outside of the box! These craft templates are laid out in straight lines and boxes…but can you picture them in curves instead? A more graceful flow? Just turn each straight line into the curve of your choice.
If you’re looking for senior activity ideas, these will work great. If you lead a group for elderly activities, try a project on a small canvas, a white canvas board, or piece of masonite — that can then be framed and used as a gift.
