in pieces...


Well, howdy...happy Wednesday...hope you are having a wonderful week thus far!  I have been flipping through some older issues of Scrapbook Etc. and finding paper piecing patterns...got me thinkin'.  So I pulled up to my scrap paper bin and had a little paper piecing fun for myself while adding my Precious Remembrance stamps...
It is easy.  With how many stamps, dies and stickers I have seen...paper piecing just takes a little imagination.  For the owl I simply cut out the body first, followed by the belly, wing (which can also be perfect for a bird) and nose.  The eyes are another story...I used a die cut for these (Quickutz Flower and Frog).  The tree limb and leaves are also hand cut.  Great thing about creating your own is each one can be unique.  Had so much fun with this one wanted to make something else..
A cute little bee...even easier!
Just cut out the body (adding small strips of yellow to create the stripes), head, wings, wire antennas and glittered heart.   Make them large or small!  Hope this inspires you to create your very own cute character...
