the easiest One Sheet Wonder ever…

Whew!  I am glad this OSW (one sheet wonder) is done!  I started sketching it 5 years ago…LOL…when I created my last one.  Last week it took me 2 days to find where I placed it.  ha ha.  But I’m glad it is now found…and finished!   

One sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper will create 8 cards.  The bonus is…I have 16 different layouts you can choose from!  So if you stamp 2 sheets, you can make 16 different cards.  ALL 16 cards are in 2 photos below.  I did not take individual pics of them all but here’s a few of my favorites…

The BEST part is…it is SO simple to cut the sheet up.  Here’s the diagram…simple, huh?  :0)

Can’t be any easier!  This is what my sheet started out like.  First, cut in half…then the bottom was cut into the panels.

So here’s some pics with all 16 cards…8 vertical and 8 horizontal.  Pick & choose what you want to use!  (CLICK on the photos for larger view)

 And here’s some general guidelines…

OSW #4 Directions    (Numbers below correspond to card number)

Stamp one 8 1/2” x 11” sheet of cardstock.  Cut into 8 equal panels (2 1/8” x 5 1/2”) according to diagram.  Sponge edges if desired.  Follow pictures of cards for 16 possible layouts (one sheet will make 8 cards).

1. Attach OSW panel on a slant, trim.

2. Cut a “v” shape in the bottom of panel, trim the top.  Flag is 5 1/4″ long.

3. Round bottom corners of panel, trim the top.  Panel is 5 1/8” long.

4. Trim panel to 4 ½” in length.

5. Diecut or punch 3 circles (approx. 1 7/8”) from panel.

6. Trim panel to 2” x 5 1/4″.

7. Cut a 3/4″ strip from the left side of the panel, attach both pieces with a small space between them.

8. Cut panel in half to make 2 pieces, each 2 1/8 x 2 3/4.  The 2 yellow layers are 1 3/4 x 2 3/8.

9. Cover bottom edge of panel with various sizes of circle punches.  I used 3/4″, 1”, and 1 3/8”.

10. No measurements needed.

11.  My gray tag is 2 1/8” wide.

12. Flags are 1” x 3 5/8”.

13. Tear top edge of panel on a slant.  Gray layer is 4 3/4″ x 3 5/8”.

14. No measurements needed.

15. 3 gray squares are 1 1/2″.

16. I cut the right side of the panel at 1 7/8”.  Attach both pieces with a space between them, trim left edge.  Circle is 1 3/4″.
