Some of you have joined my "pretty paper strips" cards. I've been meaning to think of a better name for them and thus, I decided upon paper quilt cards. I did a search on YouTube for some inspiration and in doing so, found this video to make a herringbone patterned card, and thought it might be fun to try.
She uses 1/4 inch strips but feel free to use a bigger size. I might try 1/2 inch strips because I seem to have an abundance of them. :) While she uses a tape runner to apply adhesive to the cardstock layer, you could also use an adhesive sheet. [Tip: Full size adhesive sheets can sometimes be found at garage/estate sales, or if you want a smaller amount to experiment with, check your local DollarTree store for a 20 4x6 package in their office supply aisle, marketed as shipping labels.]
Additional note: If you need more inspiration, Goggle "herringbone quilt cards" - oh so fun!
After you get your herringbone quilt pattern done, add some sort of focal point to the card (greeting or other).
We will be making this card for our partner to enjoy (and have for inspiration), so please write a note on the inside.
Have fun! :)
