Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a 6×6 Paper Pad tutorial using Echo Park Christmas Magic paper pad and ephemera. I will be making 55 Christmas cards and leaving no patterned paper scraps. With this process I can easily whip up a bunch of cards for card drives like Cards for Hospitalized Kids. If you want more info on donating cards or get jokes for your cards please check out my Card Drive Resources page.Check out the video below to hear me talk you through the process and in the blog post I will share each card design and the sketch or measurements.

I created 4 cards with my A2 One Sheet Wonder Template #1
I created 12 cards with my A2 One Sheet Wonder Template #20
I created 5 cards with 3×3 square focal panels and two 3 x 1 strips tucked underneath. (All mats are 1/4 inch bigger and all measurements are in inches)
I created 3 cards with using a 3×3 square on top and two 2×3 rectangles underneath. (All mats are 1/4 inch bigger and all measurements are in inches)
I created 4 cards with my A2 One Sheet Wonder Template #7
I created 2 cards with a 5 x 3.75 background panel and a 5 x 2.25 center strip. I took the leftover 3.75 x 1 and 2.25 x 1 strips to create the third card. This will give you 3 cards from two sheets of paper with no scraps. (All mats are 1/4 inch bigger and all measurements are in inches)
I created 8 cards with my NEW A2 One Sheet Wonder Template #24
I created 4 cards with a 3×3 square and a 3X.5 rectangle. (All mats are 1/4 inch bigger and all measurements are in inches)
I created 12 cards with my A2 One Sheet Wonder Template #11 although I changed the measurements slightly to accommodate the 3×4 cut aparts included in the paper pad.
Those are all the cards I created for this tutorial. I hope you are able to find some designs that will work for you in creating your Christmas cards this years or busting your own 6×6 paper pad.
