I love simple sketches, and this one is just fabulous! :) We hope you have fun playing along. Onto the measurements... One potential set of measurements for this sketch could be:

Base: 11 x 4 1/4" scored in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 1: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" **note, try cutting an 8 1/2" piece of paper in half the long way at 4 1/4 and you'll yield 6 pieces from one sheet of paper.
Layer 2: 4 x 3" (maybe cut this one from 12 x 12, with no waste at all!)
Additional layers are ribbon, punches, or hardware embellishments... just have fun and be creative.

Does the thought of cutting your cardstock using measurements baffle you? Well, you can check out the most awesome post on how to read a ruler written by the very lovely and talented Lee Conrey, by clicking here.
