ONE SHEET WONDER
One of the projects I took to work on at the crafting get away was a
revival of the ONE SHEET WONDER template.
The technique involves cutting a 12x12 or 8.5x11 sheet of pattern paper to
embellish size A2 card bases made from neutral card stock.
The idea is to have as little waste from the pattern paper as possible.
10-15 cards can be made from 1 or 2 sheets of paper.
This is a great project when many cards are needed and/or
to jump start creative juices. Double sided pattern paper will give more options.
-Use a simple template for your first project. The cuts I needed to
make were complicated.
-Find time to just cut out the pattern paper.
-Label envelopes to store the pieces until you are ready to put cards together.
-Have base cards cut and scored before adding embellishments.
-Lay out the cards before attaching to base card.

Here are some examples of cards I made with my OWS template and paper.
I made 15 cards from two 12x12 pieces of paper--no waste! Awesome!
I added words and more embellishments.
