Looking for a quick and easy way to use your patterned papers to make a bunch of cards?

In this video, I’m going to show you how you can make 14 cards from 1 sheet of 12×12 patterned paper!

You can make 14 of the SAME card or you can create 14 different cards, but making the same card is definitely the fastest because you only have to come up with one idea.

A one sheet wonder is where you take ONE sheet of patterned paper, cut it up and use each piece to make a card. While there are lots of templates available, this is one of the EASIEST because you simply cut your patterned paper into 14 pieces that are 2” x 5”.

I used a piece of 12×12 paper from the Countryside Inn paper pack to make these cards.


This one sheet wonder cutting technique works best with an all-over design with no obvious up and down pattern.


If you do choose to use a paper with an obvious up and down pattern, you’ll have to think a bit harder about which way to cut your paper and you’ll end up with 2 cards that are horizontal instead of vertical.

Night of Navy card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″ embossed with the Countryside Blossoms folder
Patterned Paper: 2″ x 5″
Circle Size: 2-3/8″
