Hello crafty friend! Today’s paper pad tutorial uses Paper Rose’s Dad’s Shed. I made 35 cards 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.

Most of today’s cards were created with my 6×6 Paper Pad Template #1 . I will note any cards where changes were made, but that single PDF will give you most of the measurements and sketches you need to recreate these cards.
These 3 cards use Sketch #1 for Cutting Template A. I mixed up the sketch by using it ‘upside down’ and putting the cut apart off center.
These 3 cards use Sketch #2 for Cutting Template A. I did not round the corners for this set.
These 9 cards use Sketch #1 for Cutting Template B. I did not round the corners for this set. Some cards use the ‘A’ side of the paper and others use the “B” side.
These 6 cards use Sketch #1 for Cutting Template C. I added a mat behind the large rectangle.
These 6 cards use Sketch #1 for Cutting Template D.
These 2 cards use the circles from Cutting Template D ,but I have arranged them in a group of 3 and added a sentiment cut from the cut-aparts since not all the cut-aparts in this collection worked as complete pieces.
These 6 cards use a paper that I felt did not work well with any of the designs in the template. Instead, I wanted to use some of the decorative strips on the back of this paper. This card is very similar to 6×6 No Scrap Template #11, but the length of the center rectangle was modified to be the 6 inch length minus the two strips (bottles and grid) that I wanted for the background strip.

That completes my card shares for this paper pad tutorial. I hope you find some designs that will work for you in busting your own 6×6 paper pad.
