12 Cards | Michaels Recollections Memory Explosion Box 6 x 6 Paper Pad and Ephemera


Today I’m sharing 12 cards I made using the Recollections Memory Explosion Box Collection. This collection is sold at Michaels craft stores. It caught my eye because of all of the pretty pastel colors and foil throughout the paper pad. There were so many pieces to this collection, but I purchased the 6 x 6 foil paper, chipboard frame stickers, birthday die cuts, and washi tape. With these items, I made 12 birthday cards and used up all of the ephemera. Some of the cards can be used for congratulations cards as well. With the chipboard frames, I made some shaker cards. All supplies are listed below.

White/Pink Flower Pattern Paper – Cut paper 2″ from each side. You will have three strips of paper. Take the two end pieces with the flowers on them and cut 1/2″ from each side of the two strips. These two strips will be 2″ x 5″. Next, cut each strip at 2 1/2″ along the 5″ side. This will give you 4 rectangles that are each 2 1/2″ x 2″. Adhere each rectangle to the four corners of the pink cardstock, leaving about 1/8″ on the top and side edges.
