Paper Quilts

One of my endeavors is making quilt designs with paper on a thin wood foundation - something small and manageable.  The thin wood I had on hand just happened to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" in size, which I later discovered was the same size as the popular artist trading cards.  The format seemed perfect, but I don't want them to have any function other than to satisfy my creative urges.  I don't desire to trade them or sell them.  They are really just Q-Bits - bits of quilts!
My methods for making Q-Bits were developed from what I have learned on an occasional decoupage project over the years.  I glue paper onto the front of the wood overlapping the edges to the back; then glue an exact size piece of paper to the back - much like a hardback book cover is constructed.  Then I glue on each individual piece of my chosen design, and cover it all with a couple coats of decoupage glue for a durable finish.
My Q-Bits fall into basically three categories:  "JUST BECAUSE", "TRAVEL", "SEASONS AND HOLIDAYS".
