Double One Sheet Wonder for 6″ x 6″

One of my favorite commercials from childhood was the Doublemint Gum commercial that featured sets of identical twins chewing gum (“double your pleasure, double your fun.”) Why? I don’t know. However, I think the brilliance of a Double One Sheet Wonder pattern is even better than those commercials. Right?

1986 Doublemint Commercial

My favorite thing about using a pattern like this is that the basic design of the card is already figured out which allows you to just choose your favorite greeting set and some embellishments to finish the cards. It also brings great pleasure (double your pleasure, if you will) to put together the pieces of these cards like a puzzle.

I created this Double One Sheet Wonder #2 6×6 template to make 5 quick and easy cards in a snap. You can view the replay of the Facebook Live Papercrafting Playdate video were I put together this pattern and download a pdf to save for your own files. Here are the supplies you need to whip up a batch of delightful cards.

Supplies Needed

  • 2 sheet of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (all four sides should coordinate)
  • 5 card bases in a coordinating cardstock color 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” each
  • 5  pieces of Basic White cut at 5 1/4” x 4”
  • Ribbon or embellishments of choice
  • Optional: Basic White scraps for die cutting shapes for sentiment images
  • Optional: A second coordinating cardstock color for layering with sentiments or adding accents.

Tips for Success

  • Cut both pieces of DSP at the same time.
  • If using DSP that has two “busy” patterns, be sure these sides of the paper are facing each other when cutting
  • If one of the DSP sides has a stripe or a directional pattern make sure it is upright and horizontal when cutting.
Make the first cut at 2” along one side so that you have 2”x 6” and 4”x 6” pieces.
Turn the 2” x 6” pieces and cut at 3 1/4” along the long side.  This gives you 2” x 3 1/4” and 2” x 2 3/4” pieces.
Turn the 4”x 6” pieces and cut at 4” and then at 1 1/2”.  This gives you 4” x 4” squares, 4” x 1 1/2” pieces and 4” x 1/2” pieces.
Take the 4” x 4” squares and cut diagonally across (not from corner to corner, but offset from the corners about 1”)
Do the above cutting of the 6″ x 6″ DSP both at the same time.
Lay the pieces onto the Basic White cardstock first. Do any stamping on the Basic White before gluing on the DSP.

    Hi Robin!
    I started watching your videos a month or so ago, when I found you! Love your videos, and your calm voice! Your videos are very professional. I’ve got a question. I found this one on Pinterest, just now. I clicked on the PDF, but I don’t see any way to print the 4 pages of the PDF. Can you please help me? Thanks so much!

  3. I spend too much time on the computer finding and printing patterns/designs and not enough time left to make them. But these cards are on the top of my pile. Your explanation of how to assemble and pick your prints makes this look easy! What a way to go through scraps too (yes, I have rather large scraps!!) Thanks for the great printouts too.

  4. Robin, just found these cards on Pinterest. GREAT IDEAS!! Thanks for the inspiration in making use of DSP!!

    1. Hi Kathy! I’m glad you found this OSW and hope you create a bunch of cards with my template! I still use this one all the time. Happy creating!
