Everyone loves garden gnomes and now you can create this one to embellish your cards and scrapbook pages. Coloring with paper, also called paper piercing, is a fun technique that everyone on HSN Craft Day is doing. I have more gnomes here.
Once you are sure you understand the basics, download the SVG File. There are no design space files for coloring with paper. The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space.
Paper Selection For the Garden Gnomes
Cutting your Garden Gnome
Watch my video on cutting different colors on the same mat.
First, stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper. When you have all your colors for the garden gnome cut out, then start placing the various pieces on the garden gnome with the tweezers.
DO NOT TOUCH THE STICKY SHEET WITH YOUR FINGERS
When all the open spaces are filled, check to make sure all the paper is secure. Press the protective sheet over everything and press sorta hard. Anything that seems loose, glue down with the liquid glue and let dry for at least 30 minutes.
Finally, with scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.
Use the gnome as you like. Here I made a simple card using the finished garden gnome.
