Make Your Own Pretty Little Pie Art

The fabulous Jen Goode is back this month with another free printable just for you.  This time it is some pie art and tags that you can customize.  Don’t forget to follow Jen at 100 Directions to get even more amazing printables like this throughout the month.

This time of year it seems the air is filled with pie fragrances. School starts and I think of fall and baking. The berries are ripe, whipped cream sounds delicious… on EVERYTHING and I can’t help but thing maybe we should be making more pie. So today’s printable is inspired by just that… yummy pie! 

Originally, Angie and I were talking about creating pretty pie wall decor. Choose your favorite recipe, print it out on a pretty paper, frame it and voila! But as I started drawing, I thought it would be fun to also create gift tags and little cards that you could use to go along with your pie art adventure.
