Now on to the projects!

To start, print out the different patterned paper using a colored printer.  Get your scissors, glue and other materials to make a variety of items.  You can make them all and use one pattern to make it coordinated.  You can download the paper multiple times and do remember it’s for personal use only.

To make a trinket holder, cover the middle portion (where the label is) with the patterned paper.  We used an old tea can for this project.

To make the greeting card, cut thick construction paper sheet the size of 8.5 x 5.5.  Pick a dark color like what we used – dark purple (see below) so it will contrast better with the design.  Fold the sheet into 2 to form the card base.  

Download our cat-tern (cat shaped pattern) and use a carbon sheet to trace the cat-tern on to our free downloadable patterned paper.  Cut the cat shape and paste onto the front.  Then use silver gel pen to write the “Just For You”.


The pencil holder has the same procedure as the trinket holder (above).  We used an old medicine plastic bottle as the base and took out the cap (try to find another way to recycle that!).

To make a container for pictures, snacks, sewing supplies, and other everyday things, use the same process as the trinket holder and pencil holder.  We used a biscuit container and the bottom portion is a little smaller than the top portion so take note of that when you cut your patterned paper.

To have pretty decor flitting about your room, just download this pattern, print and use carbon paper to trace it onto your patterned paper.  Staple them back to back, fold a bit so they look like they are “flying” and punch a hole in the center to hang with ribbons.

There are also a lot of great ideas from bloggers!
