Gift Tag

Another day - yet another thing I'm trying.

Just a quick one here to show you something little I've made for no reason other than to have a go a paper piecing. I've seen some beautiful examples people have done recently showcased on their blogs and I decided to have a go.  

This was my attempt and I mounted it onto a little gift tag:

I think the stamps were a bit small really to show this technique off properly, and the photo really only shows up the glitter I added to the cake toppings.  They are patterned - really they are! 
I also attemped some fake stiching round the edge of the stamp but that didn't work out too well really - I think I put the holes too close together.

I've got some bigger christmas stamps that might work well with this and possbily some fairies that may work - but would be a big faff to cut out!  Looks like I'll have to invest in some more stamps!

Thanks for reading! x
