Cards With Paper-Piecings

Give Your Valentine Card Dimension with a Bouncing Bumblebee

Design by Jennifer Perks

Jennifer fashioned a bobbling bee by attaching a piece of cardstock folded accordion-style behind the paper-pieced bee. She also added small details, such as the wire antennae and vellum wings, to enhance her Valentine's Day greeting.

Editor's Tip: To create the flight path, pencil a curvy line. Then pierce holes along the line and stitch them with black floss.
