Paper Piecing Possibilities

 
Every once in awhile, I get into a paper piecing state of mind. I love the unique look that it gives and the flexibility it offers.

Here is a fun owl card that was made using brown and green embossed Bazzill card stock. It works so well with the Cosmo Cricket tree paper too!

My die-cutter of choice when paper piecing is the Sizzix.  It’s nice to utilize a tiny piece of paper and to be able to cut through multiple layers at a time.
I also enjoy finding other crafters that can make one-of-a-kind paper piecing embellishments for me!  This special Alice in Wonderland card was made using the handmade die-cut from another Etsy selller, Kott Kreations.
This unique embellishment is completely pieced and penned by hand.  I wouldn’t have had the time (or patience…or know-how) to do it myself.  This can be a little more expensive than doing it yourself, but it’s a nice treat once in awhile and makes for an AMAZING card!
Here is another card in which I enlisted the help of a fellow Etsy crafter to make the paper pieced die-cut for me.  This darling owl was handmade by Lisa’s Handmade Cards.  Her listing just grabbed me one night and I thought of all the potential in this terrific embellishment!
Whether you make it yourself, or seek out the help of “professionals”, consider experimenting with paper piecing.  There are so many unique crafting possibilities in your future!
