My previous post featured 4x4 size cards... I was asked "why did you make them 4x4?"... here is why:
I cut my 12x12 textured cardstock from the Tie the Knot Simply Scrappin' kit like this:
They are all 4x8 pieces with a 4x4 left over for punching out extra circles or scallop circles.
Then I cut my patterened paper from the SS kit into 4" strips, and cut each one into 2x4 or 4x4 pieces like this:
This yields 24 TEXTURED 4x4 cards (4x8 folded in 1/2) PLUS I still have the 3 sheets of Kraft cardstock which will yield 12 more cards!
The patterned paper in the pack yields WAY more than enough for the 24 cards.
I put the 4x4 cards in the regular size Stampin' Up! Medium envelopes and mail them that way.
Hope this helps you see the value in this kit.. if you are using it for cards, you can get 36 4x4 cards out of a pack! Cool, huh?
OK, there's your tip for the day!
