reverse paper-pieced tags

Hi there!

I have a lawn fawn project to share today, inspired by the tags found in *this* pin.


I love the little animals, with their polka dot backgrounds...so using images from into the woods and lawn fawn polka dot papers, this is what I came up with:

reverse paper-pieced tags

I'll show you step by step how I created these, by doing some "reverse" paper-piecing. (is that a thing? I dunno. ha.)

and voila! With some careful cutting, and cleaning up the edges with the black marker, it looks seamless!  What I also love about this technique is that the backside of the tag is a plain white - just like a print would be.
