What’s a One Sheet Wonder? It’s where you cut up one sheet of paper, either pre-printed patterned paper or paper that you stamp an all-over design on, and then you use the pieces to make a bunch of different cards or projects (scrapbook pages, bookmarks, 3-D items, etc.).

It’s a great way to get your creative juices flowing when you’re not sure where to start! For these one sheet wonder cards I chose to cut up a piece of green chevron printed paper from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper PackHere’s what the pieces look like once they are all cut:

Cut a piece of 12″x12″ paper into pieces, following this One Sheet Wonder Template.

Once you’ve got your pieces cut, it’s time to start creating! Select card stock in colors that coordinate with the design on your paper pieces. In this case the chevrons are Gumball Green on a white background, so I decided to use Gumball Green and Whisper White card stock on the first card…

This card used one of the “B” pieces from the one sheet wonder template.
The white piece with the greeting stamped on it will be taped onto the inside of the card.

This monochromatic birthday card also used one of the “B” pieces from the template.
The white piece with the greeting stamped on it will be taped onto the inside of the card.

Don’t forget that you can mount multiple clear mount stamps on the same block!

To add some more color to the next cards, I added Midnight Muse to the color combo.

This card used one of the “D” pieces from the template.
It’s also a great reminder to layer your punch & framelit shapes!

This card used one of the “E” pieces from the template.
The white piece with the stamped greeting will be taped to the inside.

Up to this point the cards were very masculine, which is great because “guy cards” are always in short supply around here. However I decided to go more feminine with the next cards and use some flowers. For this next card, I swapped out the Midnight Muse for Tangerine Tango.

This card used one of the “D” pieces from the template.

This card used one of the “C” pieces from the template.

Well I hope that you enjoyed these cards and can see the potential of giving the One Sheet Wonder a try. I’ve still got lots more pieces to play with from this one and look forward to making some more cards.
