One Sheet Wonder #4 to Celebrate 100 Episodes of Papercrafting Playdate

Today we are celebrating the 100th episode of Papercrafting Playdate with a new One Sheet Wonder card template! Whether you are looking for an easy way to make multiple cards at once or just a relaxing way to get into a crafty mood, using a One Sheet Wonder template is a great activity. I had so much fun creating this new OSW template for you to try, and hope that you do!

OSW #4 Using A Walk in the Woods DSP

It is fun for me to create a OSW template and test it out using different papers. I feel like a good OSW template has several qualities that make it stand out.

What Makes a Good One Sheet Wonder Template?

  • It is flexible!
  • It makes interesting card layouts that are not all the same.
  • It can be applied to most pattern paper designs with ease

Papercrafting Playdate 100 – A New One Sheet Wonder Template

Supplies & Directions for One Sheet Wonder #4

  • 10 card bases (5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4”)
  • 10 – envelopes (A2 size)
  • 12 x 12 piece of double-sided patterned paper with coordinating sides
  • 10 punched or die cut sentiments for card fronts
  • Embellishments of choice
  • Coordinating Cardstock Pieces
    • Card 1 – 2-3/4” x 5-1/4”
    • Card 2 – 1” x 5-1/4”
    • Cards 3 & 4 – 2-3/4” square cut diagonally
    • Card 5 – 3-1/2” x 4-1/2”
    • Card 6 – 4-1/4” x 2”
    • Card 7 –1/4” x 5-1/2”
    • Card 8 – 2-1/2” x 5-1/4”
    • Card 9 – 4” x 5-1/4”
    • Card 10 – 3-1/4” x 4-1/4”


  1. Take note of the patterns on both sides of the 12 x 12 piece of paper and determine if any of the patterns have a definite direction that you will have to orient as you cut. All of the card front layouts can be used horizontally or vertically so it is up to you which way the patterns to go.
  2. Cut 2” off the bottom of the 12 x 12 piece first and set this 2” x 12” strip aside to finish cutting later. 
  3. Next, along the 12“ edge of the now 10” x 12” piece, cut strips at 1”, 1-1/2”, 2-1/2”, and 3” creating 5 strips altogether each 10” long. 
  4. Use the cutting dimensions for each of the strips including the first 2” x 12” strip you cut off as shown in the diagram. This will create 10 different card front layouts. As you cut you will sort the pieces into piles according to the number of card they belong to. When you begin to assemble the card fronts you will flip one or more of the pieces created to the opposite pattern.
  5. Attach the pieces and the coordinating cardstock to the card fronts. Add a punched or die cut focal point with sentiment. Embellish as desired.

    Robin, thanks for showing the calendar pages I sent to you…it made me feel so special. Loved the one sheet wonder from the tartan aqua paper…thank you for the template and directions with pictures…I am definitely a visual learner. Again you have hit it out of the ballpark. Enjoy the fall weather and the pretty fall leaves.

    1. Hi Charlotte! Then honor is all mine! I adore your calendar and am so grateful you sent it to me, thank you! Glad you like the new OSW too!

  2. Hi Robin,
    I discovered your website about a month ago and am so very grateful for your generous spirit and creativity. I am still working through all your playdates and templates and am amazed that you start with a sheet (or a few sheets) of paper and out pops a pile of cards. I just finished watching episode 100 and am in love with the layouts and will be using it this year for my Christmas cards! My favorite is the tartan, but the floral one was a completely different look. OSWs take mass producing holiday cards to a new, fun creative endeavor that is not mentally exhausting and – who doesn’t love a puzzle.

    I have signed up for on your website and am looking forward to your newsletter. I am a demonstrator (personal) located north of San Francisco.

    Thank you for sharing your love of ink, paper and cardmaking.
