Simon Says..... Paper Piecing

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our "Make a Gift" challenge last week. Wow, your gifts were amazing and filled us with so much inspiration !

This week our challenge is PAPER PIECING !

For those of you who have no idea what paper piecing is, you stamp your image onto white card and also onto patterned paper. You then cut out the shapes you want from the patterned paper and glue it to your image on the white card. You can paper piece anything but its usually clothing and accessories.

As always, we are sponsored by the lovely Heidi who is giving the lucky winner a $25 P&P free shopping spree around the Simon Says Stamp Store !

We are being joined again this week by our fabulously talented Guest Designer, JACKIE !

Here are the rest of the DT's creations for your inspiration .....

We look forward to seeing your paper piecing creations !
Please make sure that word verification is turned off if you would like the DT to leave a comment. The comment moderation is a nicer way to screen comments. Thank you !
Happy crafting !
