More Disney Paper Piecing – Monster’s Inc.

mikeweb2 Paper Piecing Disney characters is as easy as digging through your kid’s coloring books! Until there is a pixar cricut cartridge, I’ll settle for making my own using coloring pages as a template.

PS: These are also part of a Disney swap I am participating in.  If you have never joined a swap find some friends or a message board and look around for links about “swapping.”  People swap everything from page elements (photo mats & titles) to entire pages.  Over the next week I’ll be posting more of my submissions to a Disney scrapbook swap in whic I’m participating.

I’m sitting alone in the basement tonight trying to finish up some Disney paper piecing items for a Disney swap that I am involved in (more on that tomorrow).  It’s what’s been keeping me from the blog.  Look how great they turned out!!!

These were specifically for a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” attraction page.

PS: I’m rocking out to David Cook…it’s what’s keeping me going when I’m on the 16th teacup. 🙂

Paper Pieced Animals

There are only two rules at Sunday Night Craftie Club: (1) No talking about work (which made more sense when we all worked together) and (2) You have to make something.

I wasn’t feeling well on Sunday, but that doesn’t mean I broke rule #2! I had to find something to make and I was inspired by one friend’s latest adventure — joining a sorority! Their mascot is a giraffe, so I made one for her. The other girls were jealous so I had to make animals for them too!!

MY TIPS FOR YOUR OWN PAPER PIECING

**I free hand most of my work, but I sketch it out first just to have an idea for dimensions.

**Then I draw only half the piece on a folded white paper so that the pieces come out symmetrical.

**I cut out a template and then trace and cut on the color I want!

**Ink the pieces to add dimension

**Add details by hand with a black pen
