Let’s learn how cut DSP (Designer Series Paper) to make a card.
A reliable Paper Trimmer will come in handy for this. Also, make sure that the blade is sharp for a clean and neat cut.
Designer Series Paper (DSP) are usually 12 x 12 inches. It’s always a great idea to trim them to size so that they are ready to use when you need them.
Here’s a video showing my cutting process and the card I made:
I always keep a stack of 6 x 6 inches and also a stack of 3-7/8 x 5-5/8 inches. This way, I’m always inspired to use them for card making. When they are cut-to-size, I’m ready to create when the inspiration strikes.
Do you use these sizes in your card making? Do you cut them in smaller sizes too? I’m curious to know what size you prefer.
I sometimes keep the strips of left over paper for collage art and paper weaving. Do you have projects for little strips of paper too?
I hope that this guide helped you and that you’ll also give it a go.
