Have you ever paper pieced before? Christine here today and I’m delighted to share with you a great shortcut for paper piecing with our adhesive sheets. This will really save some crafty time and who doesn’t appreciate that?!
Creating my Paper Piecing Card
Firstly I created my card base and mats, affixed in place MyStik® Permanent Strips.
Next, I gathered together various colors of cardstock and Adhesive Sheets. Here I’m using the 4″ x 6″ sheets, they are also available in 6 x 12″ and 12 x 12″.
Lift the edge of the transfer sheet, pop your card inside, smooth down and run through your die cutting machine. I used a green card for the main die cut piece. The Adhesive Sheet gives a perfect layer of glue on the back of the die cut and those little fall out pieces. Keep running through with the various colors of card with sheets. Affix main die cut onto card front and then begin to insert those sticky fall out pieces. Here I’m just beginning to insert blue and red, if you enjoy puzzles you’ll love this!
Keep going until you are happy with your design. I chose to fill the entire die cut! I finished with some white dots around the edge for that folk art look, simply added with a gel pen.
