Introduction: Greeting Cards, One Sheet Wonder

Make 14 greeting cards using one sheet of 12 X 12 scrap-booking paper!

Step 1: Supplies

Supplies you will need: One sheet of 12 X 12 scrapbook paper (double sided optional)

Card stock card bases 8.5 in X 5.5 inches, folded in half (these may be purchased or cut from plain colored card stock of your choosing)

Paper cutter

Glue or two-sided tape of your choice (I used a basic acid free glue stick)

Stamps or decorations of your choice, scraps of paper, ribbons, buttons, etc.

Step 2: Patterns

Print or photograph these two patterns to use in your project.

Step 3: Cut

Then, following the pattern, cut your paper into pieces as directed by the pattern measurements.

Step 4: Label

Label your pieces by number with sticky notes according to the card pattern paper.

Step 5: Attach

Starting with card #1, use your adhesive to attach the scrapbook paper to the card as shown in the picture pattern.

Step 6: Make Adjustments As Needed

Card # 6 is different on the cutting pattern than in the picture pattern. The paper piece is larger. You may cut it down to size, or keep it larger. I chose to cut it into three pieces and turn two over to the contrasting side. I also turned it on it's side so I had room to stamp a greeting.

Step 7: More Adjustments

Card # 5-the scrap-book paper piece was wider than in the picture

Card #9-I turned the paper the other way

Card #10-I reversed the paper and turned the card on it's side

The only rule here is "be creative"! The pattern is just a guide!

Step 8: Decorate 1-5

Using your stamps, stickers, ribbons, contrast paper, buttons, or other decorations, create cards that you will enjoy giving away!

Step 9: Decorate Cards 6-9

Embellish as you like.

Step 10: Decorate Cards 10-14

Have fun with it!
