Are you saving the cardboard that comes with your 12 x 12 paperpacks? I hope so! Besides using them to cut letters and shapes with your Cricut you can use them to create Jumbo Greeting Cards. This is an assortment of cards I made with a CKC class kit.
As you can see a variety of materials have been used including Delta Paint for the chipboard letters and fabric strips used instead of ribbon in the holes along the top. Photos, journaling or memorabilia could be added to personalize.
