Paper peicing at the Craft Den

This weeks technique at the Craft Den was paper piecing!! I have done this once before but only very basically so really enjoyed it!! The hardest part was the flower as the stem is very thin and very fiddly but I love cutting out so it was a challenge xx

We used My minds eye papers for the background and border and the new Nellie C's just in at the Craft Den but selling really fast!!! We also did the flowers also with new punches in from Nellie C, (set of two one punches the flower then you pop it into the nest one to shape it)

Finishing touches - glamour dust, pearl pens, Laura Ashley brad & ribbon.

Looks great Chanelle. I enjoyed that class too. Love the corner detail with the lace. Might pinch that idea. Have you seen the new Martha Stewart punches Lynne's got in. Think I may need to rob a bank. Love Sandra x
