Many of us are guilty of hoarding our pretty papers and never using them!! We like to buy them and stroke them, and the thought of cutting into a beautiful sheet of DSP sends cold shivers down us.
But these papers are made for using and sharing. I like to maximise the projects that I can make from a sheet of DSP and to this end, I have hit on the idea of “quilted” cards. I followed a You Tube tutorial by the very talented Sam Donald on how to make a basic box to hold 3 x 3 cards and then I used my 3/4 round punch to punch circles from the scraps of In Colour DSP. I then stuck them to card and ran then through the polka dot embossing folder. The effect is really lovely. These would make a super gift for someone and the 3 x 3 envelopes from Stampin Up compliment these little gems.
