The My Mind’s Eye 6×6 Holiday paper pads are SO adorable my obsession for 6×6 paper pads just grows! There are a great mix of pads to ‘steal,’ from bright, fun colors and patterns to the more traditional MME papers everyone loves. This week’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:

Use at least two different paper collections!

I chose to use My Mind’s Eye ’12 days of Christmas’ and My Mind’s Eye ‘Tis the Season’ paper pads. The colors go together so well you really can mix and match! I’ll show you how…

First, I found this adorable paper Christmas tree on Pinterest, and I knew it would be perfect to use with the 6×6 paper pads. All you need is a polystyrene cone (mine is 9 inches in height), paper pads, and pins. I cut 3/4″ strips of the papers from both pads, put the ends together, and pinned them into place! I cheated a little with the star on the top and used two gift bows stuck together! Super quick and easy to do!

I also wanted to try out some mini cracker treat boxes. They’re perfect for my children to give to their friends at Christmas. I love the 6×6 papers with smaller designs and they worked so well for this project. I just cut out the shape using my cutting machine, embellished with the different papers, and was done!

Lastly, I made a card. I used papers from both pads which coordinated so perfectly. A touch of stitching, twine, brads, a sentiment stamp, and pop dots to give it more dimension – and another simple card was done!

Today’s steal is just going to feed my obsession with 6×6 paper pads. I will definitely be picking up a few more! I hope I have inspired you to join in this week’s Monday Craft Madness challenge to use at least 2 different paper collections!
