Mini one-sheet wonder with Hang Your Stocking



Today is Crafty Friday… a relaxed morning class for a small group of crafters. We take things slowly, learn new techniques and there’s usually a freestyle element to the event. 

Today we will be making boxes, just in time for our Christmas gift wrapping needs. 

But before that, I realise I haven’t yet shown you what we made last month, when we created a mini One-Sheet Wonder. This is where you stamp randomly all over a piece of cardstock, then cut it up to make several projects. Usually you stamp on a full sheet of cardstock but, due to time restraints we stamped on a half sheet, A5. 

The trick with a One-Sheet Wonder is always to start with your largest stamp, and work down to your smallest. Also, when you cut up your pieces, don’t feel you can’t add more images if you see any ‘bare’ areas which need filling in. 

These are the three cards I made and showed to the ladies, before letting them loose to copy whichever ones they liked, or create their own designs.  I love these clean, fresh colours - Real Red, Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.
