One Sheet Wonder with Forever Greenery DSP
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
One Sheet Wonders are awesome when you want to make a lot of cards quickly and inexpensively. This One Sheet Wonder makes 12!!! cards with one sheet of designer series paper. Wow - you cannot beat that for economical cards. The YouTube tutorial can be found here.
The Forever Greenery DSP is soooo beautiful, and can be used for fancy cards or cute cards. I particularly like it with the Ornate Thanks and Zany Zebras stamp sets shown above. :)
The Forever Greenery DSP is currently on sale for $9.78 for 12 sheets of double-sided 12x12 paper. That means if you use one sheet for 12 cards, like I show you how to do here, each sheet costs $0.82 - for each of the 12 cards, it costs 7 CENTS for the DSP. WHHHAAATTT? Add in 12 card fronts (here Shaded Spruce and Whisper White), a few scraps of Whisper White cardstock, and some trim and/or rhinestones and each of these cards cost about 10 cents!! And all 12 took me just a half an hour total to make. You can't beat that. (*Even when the DSP is not on sale, the sheets of DSP are $0.96 each, so the cards total $0.25 each. How else can you get gorgeous cards for a quarter?!?)
Here is the template for the One Sheet Wonder that I created for the video. Honestly, you can cut the sheets anyway you want. The idea is to get a good variety of pieces and use all the paper with no waste.
Choose the sheet of DSP you want to work with. You can choose any design you like.
(1) Cut the sheet vertically into strips at 5.25", 4", 2" and 0.75". You now have four strips, each 12 inches long. Taking the 5.25" strip, cut it horizontally at 4", 4", 2" and 2". You now have four pieces: two at 4x5.25"; and two at 2x5.25".
(2) Cut the 4 inch strip horizontally at 5.25", 5.25", and 1.5". Cut one of the 5.25x4" strips in half. You now have: two at 2x5.25"; one at 5.25x4"; and one at 1.5x4".
(3) Cut the 2" strip horizontally at 4" three times. Cut one of those rectangles at 2" horizontally. You now have: two at 2x2"; and two at 4x2". Taking one of the 2x2" squares, cut it on a diagonal to have two triangles.
(4) Cut the 0.75" strip in half horizontally to have two strips at 0.75x6".
This is all the DSP I used to create all 12 cards. Look at the photo for placement and embellishments, or, better yet, check out my YouTube channel to watch the video here.
Hope you like it! Please watch the video and if you like it give me a thumbs up and drop a comment. Stock up on DSP while the sale lasts. 15 papers are 15% off until October 31st!
