OSW (One Sheet Wonder) Template

Published on 23 February 2024 at 09:00

Hello, my crafty friends!  Today I am sharing a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) Template with you.   I apologize for the handwritten labels but in order to get this post out; I had to do it this way.  So get out a favorite 12" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and lets make 11 cards out of one piece of DSP.

 

Supplies:

1 12" x 12" piece of DSP (example DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and Free with a $50.00 purchase for one more week.)

11 coordinating card bases 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

10 mat layers 3" x 4 1/4"

1 mat layer 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"

3    2" circles

2    2 1/4" circles

Trimmer

 

First Cut:

The first picture shows your first cuts on your DSP

Cut @ 4 1/4"

Cut @ 4 1/4"

Cut @ 3"

Remaining piece is 1/2"


Second Cut:

The second set of cuts are shown on picture 2.

Take both your 4 1/2" pieces and cut at 3" (this gives your 8 pieces)

 

Next take your 3" piece and cut at 3 1/2", 4 1/4" (this gives you three pieces)

 

On your 1/2" strip cut at 5 1/2" and again at 5 1/2" leaving you with an inch strip which will not be used.


What pieces go where?

The fully cut DSP is now labeled with A, B, and C. 

This represents Card Set A making 8 cards

Card Set B making 2 cards

Card Set C making 1 card

8 card bases
