Make your own template/die cut paper

Are you just crazy ( like me) for all of that die cut 12x12 paper that we are seeing everywhere. I bought several different shapes and made cardboard templates so I can have my cute scalloped paper when ever I need it.
I just lay it on my favorite patterned paper or card stock and trace my shape on then cut out and have it to use over and over again. Very happy !!!

Since I took these photos last night I have added a new shape-just takes a few minutes to trace on cardboard and cut out. I have mine on a o-ring hanging with my other templates. Just thought I would share!!
Have a great "scrappy " day!!


  1. Now there is a good idea. I can't believe I never thought of doing that!

  2. That's a really good idea! I just traced a paper the other night, but never thought of making templates for all the shapes...duh! Thanks for the suggestion...

  3. I have a suggestion for you regarding these templates. at the Dollar store they have flexible cutting boards that are just thin plastic, I plan to make templates using this. I think there are three sheets to a package, and some are a little translucent. (excuse my spelling, please) Thought I would share my idea found from another crafter.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog. It means so much to me to know what you think. If you leave a question I will do my best to answer it and will post it in the same thread. <3 cm
