One sheet wonder

If you go to Pinterest – or your favorite search engine…and simply type “one sheet wonder template” you can get as many templates like this one – to choose from! I totally love how you can use the same template over and over again, and every card will turn out different depending on what you do for the saying and embellishments used! I also love to find 6 x 6 templates that are different, and use 1 12 x 12 sheet of paper on all of it. I might even use a 12 x 12 sheet of paper using an 8.5 x 11 template once in a while, it just depends on the cards and the template I decide to use, and what I feel like doing at the time!

I have really enjoyed using these templates, and not have to make my own card backgrounds out of the scraps I have leftover, searching for the perfect papers! However, I still grab a scrap of paper, and still make my own backgrounds out of them… They just are not as uniform as the templates here are – and you can use one template, one sheet of paper – and different card examples for each set of cards!

To get started –

  • Find a template you want to use depending on the sheet of paper you are planning to use. If you only want to make a few cards, find a 6 x 6 template vs a larger one. That way you can do a smaller amount of the same card easier! (Such as a birthday card from birthday paper.)
  • Use scraps of paper that you can cut into the shapes from the templates – use enough to make plenty of cards from the same theme, just different papers used.
  • Use a whole sheet of paper, add some of the shapes cut from the paper to the card itself, and put away for use later on when you need the “perfect” card.

Find your own templates, and start to search Pinterest or online for the examples you like! I see SO MANY different ways to use the template shapes, find what you like! You can find your own style – or switch it up and do many different things! I will go over some of the card examples in a post tomorrow! Check back then for more ideas!

Until next time,
