- white cardstock (4.6in x 9.2in)
- 9 different coordinating patterned papers (1.5inx1.5in)
- black sign pen
- Score your white cardstock in half to make a square card that measures 4.6in x 4.6in.
- With your spare patterned papers, cut 9 1.5 in x 1.5 in squares. Make sure that the colors of the different papers go well together.
- Try to put the square papers side by side, and see how they look together. Move the squares until you find a comfortable look.
- Adhere each square on the cardstock. Make sure each square is adjacent to each other.
- Your card should now look like this.
You can actually stop here as it already looks like a patchwork. But, for more effect, I added faux stitches by putting small x’s on the edge of each square. Now it looks more like a patchwork, doesn’t it?
This card is very easy and fun to make. The patchwork technique I used here can help in salvaging your leftover papers that are too small to be used on your regular cards, but not too shabby to throw away.;) If you have lots of leftover patterned papers, you can actually make a bigger version of this card. :)
