How to open the Canva Template Bundles
Every bundle comes as one big .zip file. This is the file you have downloaded after your purchase.
It’s probably named something like EngagementBoostBundle.zip or PuzzleTemplateBundle.zip.
This is the main bundle .zip that includes all the individual products.
To make it easier for you to download, all products are also in their own zipped files.
Example: If you have purchased the Engagement Boost Bundle, you should find 8 individual zip folders inside your download folder – one for each of the eight included products.
3 Steps to find the Canva Templates and get them out of the Bundle
- Unzip the main bundle file, e.g. EngagementBoostBundle.zip. You should find the individual product .zip files inside.
- Find the product .zip you want to use (e.g. Instagram-Video-Kit.zip for our Reels & IGTV Kit) and unzip this file as well
- Each of the inidividual product files should include a PDF called canva-links.pdf. Open it and click on the links to get access to the Canva templates.
How to unzip the bundles on a mobile phone
The newer versions of iOS/iPhone and Android are able to open zip folders simply by tapping on them.
