Paper Quilt

Happy Sunday!  How are you?!  It is pouring down rain here today...perfect day for some craft doing!  I have the neatest card to share with you!  I was blurfing one day and came across the amazingly talented Christena Bagne's quilted cards!  They are just gorgeous!  I thought I would try my hand at a simple one and had  so much fun putting this quilt square together!  After making one I thought it would be a really neat project to make several and piece them all together and frame them or make a scrapbook page from them!  Mine is in need of some minor tweaking, but I was pretty pleased with the way it came out!  Take a look:

You cut the pieces just like you would for a quilt and piece them together!  I used Tombow Adhesive from SU! to piece this one.  After it is all assembled and 'quilted' you run the whole thing through an EF using your Big Shot!  It is really very pretty in person!

I used the Extra Large Label punch and Word Window for the sentiment. I punched once and put it back into the punch to create the smaller sized matte. :)

Ok, I am off to take advantage of the icky weather and try to squeeze in some more craft-ing! Hope that you have a wonderful day!
