Paper Piecing Technique

In this video from Stampin’ Up, they walk through how to take your stash of papers and turn them into “designer” papers.

You can use sparkly paper or pretty patterned ones.

You need paper, adhesive and a paper trimmer.

Cut the strips into different widths. Grid paper makes it easier to line everything up. If you have a large cutting mat, you could use the lines on that as well.

Start by placing the paper you are going to design in the bottom corner of your grid. Hold it in place with a sticky note so it won’t shift and the sticky note comes off very easily.

Liquid adhesive works best if you are using thin strips of paper.

When you are finished, cut off the edges that are hanging off the edge.
