You DO have to make your own pattern paper.NO PAPER PIECING to make your paper! You can use cardstock as your base for your paper, matting, borders, etc…. NO STORE BOUGHT PATTERN PAPERS!!!
In addition to your made pattern papers you MUST use ALL of the following:
Metal (any type of metal)
I decided to stamp the cardstock to create the pattern. I must confess, I have not removed the plastic wrapping off these stamps that I used. I guess this is as good a time to really use up my stash.
