Hi everybody! Kim here from My Kraft Kloset
sharing an idea for making cards in 10 minutes or less. Yes, it can be done and not look like kindergarteners made them—really! I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE 6×6 patterned paper pads and I have a huge collection of them. So, I will show you how to make 24 cards from a simple template
, one 6×6 paper pad and a few embellishments! Yes, I’m going to make you cut up those pretty pads you’ve been saving.
As I sit here snowed in with two feet of snow outside, it’s a perfect day to get crafting! The hardest part of this project is choosing which paper pad to use. I chose this wonderfully detailed nautical paper pad and created all-occasion cards as you can never have too many of those.
Cut a 12 x 12-inch sheet of cardstock in half creating two 6 x 12-inch pieces. Fold each piece in half to create two 6 x 6-inch card bases. Select desired patterned paper and cut following the six examples on the template. Note: Click here to view template. Place the cut pieces in six separate piles to coordinate with cards 1 through 6. I recommend making six cards at a time so you don’t get your pieces mixed up. Also, if your patterned paper is double-sided, flip it over for even more variations.
Using the template as a guide, adhere the paper pieces to the card bases as shown. Add ribbon or twine, sticker sentiments, and a few rhinestones to complete. With this handy template provided by My Kraft Kloset
, it really does take 10 minutes or less to cut all the paper pieces and adhere to card bases. Now to make 18 more in an hour or less—you can do it. The combinations are endless. Leave a comment and let us know what you think of this project..
