Tonic Studios Paper Trimmer

Select one sheet of papermania's 6x6 card stock and score in half at the 3 inches mark to create a card base sized to 3 x 6 inches. You could also size the card base slightly shorter using a paper trimmer, resulting in a card base sized to 3 x 5 inches.

Take one sheet of white card stock and trim to 2.75 by 4.50 inches. From one standard sized 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of card stock, six panels can be created.

Using an ink blender, ink and star template, "blend" the star pattern onto the white card stock.

Create the sentiments. First, using excess card stock, cut a piece of card stock sized to approximately 3 inches x 1 inches for the banner style sentiment. Stamp sentiment onto banner piece.

Next, use circle nesting dies or a circle punch to cut a circle large enough (a circle of 1.75 to 2 inches in diameter if you like to measure) to fit the semi-circle style sentiment.

Use adhesive to secure the star covered panel to the card base. Use foam tape to adhere the circle and banner sentiment. Add embellishments like sequins to complete the look! This is a great card templet for mass production siren the 6 x6 paper used for the card requires not further cutting and the panels, circles and banners are classic shapes that are easy to create multiples of. Sneak this card into your child's backpack for a little boost of encouragement, sure to brighten their day! Take care and thanks for stopping my the blog!
