Hello Fellow Crafters,
Today is my opportunity to share a crafting tip with you at Creative Cutter Room. I decided to share how to use a 12 X 12 double sided sheet of pattern paper and not have any scraps left. I have the tendency to use only a portion of the paper and then add the remaining pieces to the box to hardly ever get used again. Do you do that too?
Here is a way to prevent that from happening.
Select one piece of 12 X 12 double sided pattern paper.
Use both sides to layer 2 or 3 card bases. Shown above on the left.
Use the remaining small pieces to make 3 X 3 cards.
I cut strips and rectangles to create the smaller cards. I also used a strip for the envelope (as seen in the background) and the inside of one of the 3 x 3 cards.
ALL the paper has been used! There are NO scraps!
Now the cards can be decorated to fit the next challenge or just to have ready for that last minute birthday card you may need.
