One Sheet Wonder Demonstration

Hello Everyone
I took a break over the Christmas
So only getting back to crafting last week
I  has an open day at my house on Saturday 11th.
with a demonstration and lunch

So before lunch I demonstrated

The One Sheet Wonder.

Take 1 sheet of 12 by 12 inch background paper and make as many backgrounds as you can. so the first picture i made C5 and 15cm Cards.




The 2nd sheet I made all 15cm cards,

This is how I cut the sheet up.

I got enough pieces to make 11 cards.


This image shows you the backgrounds

added to 15cm cards.
