Mini Slimline Card Template #1 Using 12x12 Paper featuring Michaels Hot Buy Paper


Card for Mini Slimline from 12x12 One Sheet Wonder Template #1 by Jess Crafts

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing how to use up 12x12 patterned papers to make mini slimline cards without creating any patterned paper scraps. I am using cardstock to mat the patterned paper pieces which will create some cardstock scraps. In this blog post, you can find a template for how to cut your paper as well as a sketch to show what should be done with those cuts. Of course feel free to mix it up to your own liking.

Please let me know if you find this helpful and would like to see more. It's a fun challenge and I love working with patterned paper!
