Awesome Tip! Get the most from your 12×12″ Patterned Paper!

Hello my midweek friends!

I am sharing a swap card I recently made for a demonstrator swap. I wanted to use my amazing Designer Series Paper (DSP) and get as many samples out of it as possible. I thought I would share the recipe for getting 12 cards from 1 piece of paper!!!

Step 1: Cut your 12×12″ DSP in 4″ strips and then cut those down into 3″ pieces. So each piece is 3″x4″ giving you 12 equal sized pieces… YOU WASTE ABSOLUTELY ZERO paper!!! Win/Win

Now from your 8.5″x11″ card stocks you can easily get 6 card mats each. Please note: I took this photo using crushed curry but I actually cut down pumpkin pie paper as seen below.

Easy Peasy…You have card bases made from crushed curry, a basic black border, and a pumpkin pie border. The beauty of this is you have very little wasted paper.

Simply add a cute stamp and a couple of punches and some basic twine and you have a adorable, yet super simple project.
