About Paper Piecing

Paper piecing is a simple technique that scrapbookers use to create unique page embellishments. Quilters use it too however that's another topic. Paper crafters do use paper piecing that is similar to appliqué in quilting, paper piecing involves using a pattern to cut out parts of a picture from different pieces of paper. When the papers are reassembled and glued back together, you have an original accent for your layout.
Paper piecing is well suited for adding patterned paper on a person for a shirt, dress, etc.  Currently, CTMH has a couple stamp sets that can be used for this technique including the  July SOTM, "For My Beautiful Friend". I even added pleats to the skirt to give it more "flair".
The card design used is from "Make it From Your Heart" Vol. 4 page 46 Pattern 21.  I used the Mix In papers and zip strip, including the top section using the "stars and dots" paper.  I tried to splatter some Sapphire shimmer and didn't see it "added" 
any appeal - so that was a "do over" = DONE!! 

 I cannot wait to see what others have done.  

Now hop on over to Maz Wood's blog to see what kind of fabulous "Pretty Paper-Piecing" she's created.  Be sure to drop a comment, we enjoy the encouragement. I hope you enjoyed this hop.  If you see items you would like to purchase, contact your CTMH consultant or you can Shop HERE
