Time to tackle the 12 x 12’s

Hey everyone,

I promised last week that I would make a project with 12 x 12 paper pads. I have so many of them and a rough count totalled about 70+!!! I think I could decorate my whole house 3 x times over and still have some left.

I chose to make some DL cards, matching envelopes and a gift box. I love who they turned out and you get to use both sides of your papers and I also made my own envelopes.

I also intend to make more videos using our paper pads and If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see me make then please get in touch.

I made 5 cards and the card needs to measure 8 x 8 1/4″ score the 8″ side at 1 1/4″ & 4″

The patterned paper for the card measures:

1 x 8 x 3 3/4″

1 x 8 x 2 1/2″

1 x 8 x 1 1/4″

1 x 8 x 1″

The paper for the envelope measures 9 x 10″ score the 9″ side @ 2 1/4″ & 6 3/8″

score the 10″ side @ 1/2″ & 9″

you need 2 pieces of card for the box measuring 10 3/4″ x 6 1/2″

score all 4 sides @ 1″ but on one of the pieces make sure to pull away from the edge of the scoreboard before you score. This will allow the lid to fit.

Please make sure to check out my YouTube tutorial.

Bye for now xx
