Paper Piecing Tutorial

How to Paper Piece

Carefully choose an image, one that is not too intricate suits paper piecing. I have used Faith looks Sure for this tutorial. Decide which parts of the image you wish to paper piece and how many different papers you would like to use, I used two patterned papers and one handmade paper in this demonstration.

Stamp you image onto patterned paper of your choice.

Stamp the same image onto plain card.

Cut the patterned image out in sections as shown. Now cut the plain card image out as a whole image. The black has nothing to do with paper piecing it’s only to show the cut out image.

Colour any parts of your plain card image that you are not piecing.

Glue the paper pieces onto your plain card image.

Decorate as required if at all.
That is all there is to it but what a lovely effect!

Here is the finished card. :)

Hope you have found this tutorial helpful. :)
