Video: Paper Piecing Open Book, 4 Ways

Hello! here is the video  I shared last week showing my paper piecing tips and tricks for the Open Book set!  Some of these ideas you may have seen in our facebook Live on release night, but I shared a lot more), just from having more time to experiment and play!  (and all the audio will be synched up this time lol!) This image is so easy to piece (with no tiny areas to cut or carefully add adhesive to) and it packs such a punch, looks like whatever kind of book you are trying to create, right down to the texture of the paper! Watch to the end as I have a fifth way I mention but do not show, I love it, though, and will try to make soon! I hope one of more of YOU will try it out and share with all of us if you are inspired by the perfect book! Please enjoy! Let me know in the comments your favorite way to paper piece the Open Book image, OR your favorite accessory in the set.
