Earring tent style display cards - download a template

These past few days I have been looking for a free downloadable template for a 'tent' style earring display........and couldn't find one that was big and sturdy enough for my designs!  So here's one I made for myself using 'Pages' on my mac.  I have also saved the file in Word format (but I can't open that one to check it!) so hope that those of you on a PC might also be able to use it.  Its basically a template for 3 earring cards on one 8 x 11 inch sheet. You'll need to import your own graphics etc but I have shown the placement and orientation for the finished product to work!  To turn pics or text upside down on the Mac - hold down "Command" and click on one of the box edges and turn thru 180 degrees.......

For printing I used cardstock but photo card paper also looks great as the photos (if you choose to use product photos) come out more clearly, although the photo paper curled up a bit at the edges........  so take your pick!!  

Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below....... many thanks

  1. Your display cards look great!
    They're something I've been wanting to make for ages and just haven't got around to.
    I think that now I'd better make more of an effort.
    Thanks for sharing
