Birds in Squares

Morning guys,

 Today I have for you a lovely spring Little Claire friday project using "Birds in Squares" digi download.

Little Claire has some fab digi downloads which are just right for paper piecing as you can make them any size you like.

You will need,
 some white card,
a piece of white copier paper,
 4 pieces of patterned paper in yellow, green, pink and blue,
3d foam tape /pads,
white gel pen,

Print your image onto a A4 piece of white card on the right hand side.  Also onto a piece of white copier paper.

Next print your image onto a piece of green and yellow patterned paper.

Using the white copier paper and using small pieces of patterned paper print all the small elements you want to paper piece ie the birds, fence flowers leaves etc and cut out.

Now onto white card print just the two big birds, large flower head and large heart and paper piece. Also print your sentiment, I have used Little Claire's digi super sentiment 8 and coloured the small elements using promarkers.

Next paper piece your other elements onto the yellow patterned paper, omitting the large birds, heart and flower.

Cut round each square and glue to green patterned paper.

Then glue this to your white card which will be your card base.

Score in half leaving a small margin on left hand side and trim.

Now mount your birds, heart and flower head onto 3d foam and attach to front of card. Finish off by adding a bow and the round sentiment to side of card and a with a white gel pen colour the dots on the heart and birds wings.

One lovely spring birthday card.

Here is another card using the same technique, but with  "Sleeping Doggie" and super sentiment 7. This time the fold is at the top  and I have cut round the chair to make a shaped card.

So why not give paper piecing a go !!

hugs Diane xx
