Sky Gradient Papers

When the sky’s grey, print these instant colorful skies on paper!Colors of the sky in ever changing gradient hues make such a feast for the eyes. We’ve made some printable gradient papers in 5 different sets of colors you can print and use for all sorts of paper crafts and art projects for kids.

They will make simple but colorful gift wraps, nice envelopes or favor bags for rainbow themed parties.

If you want to use more than 1 sheet for larger gifts, print the second sheet with the ‘mirrored’ (or reversed) setting from your printer, then you can seamlessly connect two sheets for continuing gradation. Of course you can connect many sheets the same way if you like.

There can be many interesting art projects for kids to do with these simple papers along with weather & nature themed activities which we’re yet to try.

    • Hi Cynthia, they seem to be fine on my computer and I can’t think what could cause it to show only pink. If more people have problems, I’ll investigate but can’t find anything wrong with the original files. It could be a preview issue with your browser…? Did you try downloading it (right-clicking) and opening in acrobat reader?

  1. I love them too but I must have a lousy printer….mine didn’t turn out as pretty as the ones shown…grrrrr

    • Sorry to hear you have problem printing. I’m not sure if my printer is any better than others, I just print with the ‘plain paper’ setting. It could be some other issue. The file’s saved as RBG but if your pdf reader or printer somehow change that into CMYK, it could dull down the color. That’s one possibility I can think of but I’m no expert in printing. Hope you can check some calibration or color output setting…?

  2. Thank you so much for these. However, they are password protected 🙁
    would you be more generous and tell me what it is

  3. Was so excited for these. Unfortunately they have lines all over them and are not as visually appealing as they appear in your photos. After I printed them out, I look at your photos and saw the same lines. I’ll be making my own. Thanks for the idea though.

    • Hi Sarah
      That’s strange, they don’t have any lines, as you can see on the files. Although the photo has a moire effect and the lines in the photos are an optical effect from the lens. I can confirm the papers printed from the files had no lines whatsoever and looked exactly like the ones in the picture (except for the moire patterns ^ ^ )
      Normally lines appear when the printer is on a draft setting so you may want to check the print settings! Thank you!

  4. Hi thank you these are beautiful! I was wondering if I could use these as backgrounds for my assignment?
