Today for our Video I have put together some ideas for you to drag out some of that stashed paper that you are storing up for a special occasion and actually use it. Friday Flicks is showing 5 Ways to use your Pretty Paper!
I will share the cards and general measurements below the video. If you are receiving this update by email and the video is not showing then head to the Blog Post or it is now on Youtube as well.

Below is the Flower and Field Strips card that was featured in the video.
The measurements are below.
White Mat – 13.8cm x 9.5cm 5 x 3 3/4″
Strip 1 – 13.4cm x 4.3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 3/4″
Strip 2 – 13.4cm x 3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 1/8″
Strip 3 – 13.4cm x 1.5cm 4 7/8″ x 5/8″
Card 2. Turn and Flip (Inspired by a card by Klompen stampers)
The sizes for cutting can be any measurements. These are my suggestions.
Cut paper to 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Cut the paper at 7cm 3″
Turn anti-clockwise and cut each paper at 8.4cm approximately 4″. Flip over 2 of the pieces and adhere straight to the card front.
Card 3: Paper Blocks (Inspired by a card by Lisa Pretto)
Cut 2 pieces of paper. They can be the same piece but reverse one side – 1) 8cm x 9.5 3 1/8″ x 3 3/4″ 2) 8cm x 7cm 3 1/8″ x 2 3/4″
Card 4: Half piece
14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ Cut the piece in half and flip one.
Card 5: This works well with a large flower print.
Fussy cut the flowers leaving an edge around the flowers. Raise up off the card with Dimensionals. Use a different pattern print for the card front. TIP: Use vellum between the pieces to break the elements up.
5 Cards and there are so many other ways too which I will share soon.
Hope you like this video and ideas.
