Sometimes I don’t want to cut these big, beautiful sheets of 12 x 12 paper because I don’t know how to get started or I wonder if I’ll want an entire sheet for a project. I have found a way to cut into the paper slowly and so far, it has worked out nicely for me. I thought I’d share my approach with you.
Here is a piece of 12 x 12 paper from the Berry Blessings bundle (another free Saleabration item.) I made one cut with my paper trimmer at 4″. That leaves me a piece that is 8″ x 12″ for other projects which I set aside. I rotated the 4″ x 12″ strip 90º so the 12″ side was along the top of my trimmer and cut it twice at 3″ and then at 5 1/4″. That left me with four pieces of paper from that one strip. The smallest one is 3/4″ x 4″. I used those pieces to make the following cards.
If you need any of these supplies to make these cards at home, please click on any of the blue links and you will be brought to my store. I’m also very happy to place an order for you, just email me what you would like to order. If, and it’s a big if, you’ve managed to resist the Saleabration deals so far, by all means go order a new stamp set or two now. There’s no better way to spend the winter than crafting and sharing hope and sunshine with a card. Remember…” a card is a hug with a fold in the middle!”
