Use your scraps effecitvely - Tutorial Part 3

hi there,

     Welcome to Use your scraps effecitvely - Tutorial Part 3/3.If you have not read my previous tutorial, please click here.

      Today's three tutorials would be some basic PP techniques.. Some seniors might be well aware of these techniques.. This tutorial is for the sake of newbies..:)

Paper Piecing
     This is an age old method, and it adds much dimension and depth to the stamped image!I really enjoy dng this.. Just a simple example to show you for tutorial.

     Stamp the required image in 2 or as many pattern papers of your choice(depends upon how many you want in the paper piecing)and on a white paper.

Cut across the lines dividing the portions in the image.

Assemble these images on the stamped image on white paper..Your paper piecing is done!

Quilting technique

Decide the size of card and the number of squares that is going to be in it.I have made 3cm squares and the card 12*9cm.

Paste them on rectangle card stock.

Die cut the whole cardstock or handcut it as I did.

Add faux stiching between the squares, to make to look like quilt.Embellish it minimally to show off its beauty!!

Sending this card to CreateMePink - add a flower.

Pattern paper bow

I would rather call it a tip than a tutorial. It is so easy to make pattern paper bows and looks cool when added to gift or card.You need double sided PP for this type of bow.

Cut as shown in figure.

Assemble them get beautiful bow!!

See how to make another type of bow in my blogger friend Dr.Sonia's blog here.
