Bauble Elf


Yes I know its another Mo Manning image but I can't help I love them. I'm kicking myself I didn't get this cute Little Elf Finn last year when everyone else did. But I was just being lazy cos I knew I would have to paper piece the bauble and really its not that difficult.
I printed out the image and then stick a piece of card over the bit you want to paper piece and tell the computer software its a card or in my case I tell its photo paper which tends to be a bit thicker than paper and print.
The papers are Authentique and my holly is the Martha Stewart Punch, with the memory box dies. 
I have some Simon Says Stamps dies waiting for me to play with they came just before I left for Spain just hope I'm up to playing with them today.
