Canada Day Decorating Templates
I have 3 templates for you. The first one comes with 4 different Maple leafs, so you can make garlands, sweet sugar tart or strawberry cupcake toppers, appliqué and more.
You should be able to right click any of the below images, and then print them to scale on your printer.
If you want to work with a maple leaf that’s larger than any of these, just print this sheet at 2:1 – for larger appliqués and decorations such as for a place mat, window or pillow cover.
To make an instant white and red garland, just print out these two sheets and string them together.

Every summer party must have a kebabs, and here’s a fruit version idea for you, in red and white stripes. We can borrow this idea from our southern neighbors, can’t we?! Tip: sprinkle with lemon if made in advance so your banana won’t brown.
