The gold paper on this Coloring with Paper Geometric Shape adds so much bling to this project. I made a clock face out of it which shows how useful this method is! This method is also called paper piercing and everyone on HSN Craft Days is doing it!.
Once you are sure you understand the basics, download the SVG File. There is no design space file because of the way I have to design this project. The instruction sheet in the download file explains how to upload it to Design Space.

The black paper I use for most of the outlines is linked in the materials list.
The color possibilities are endless. Just try to keep the colors coordinated or they look funny. Patterns work nicely on this Coloring with Paper Geometric Shape. Use your imagination and your leftover paper bin. The metallic paper just does so much for this project.
Cutting the Coloring With Paper Geometric Shape
Download one or all of them. But don’t shrink them or the black lines are too thin. You can cut multiple colors on the same mat.
Watch my video about cutting multiple colors on one mat.
Assembling the Coloring with Paper Geometric Shape
First, stick the outline to the contact paper and re-cover it with the protective backing paper. Make sure you place a small scrap of paper between the antennas and the sticky paper to keep the from sticking.
Now start placing the various pieces on the outline with the tweezers.
DO NOT TOUCH THE STICKY SHEET WITH YOUR FINGERS
Put the pieces on the template in the following order:
- outside ring – gold
- inward next color – yellow
- next inward – glitter gold
- then next – tan
- next – glitter gold
- next- gold
- circles – gold
- outer shield shape – yellow
- inner shield shape – gold
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.
With scissors cut around the outside leaving as much of the outside black line as you can.
And your Coloring with paper geometric shape is done. Use the piece as you like. I used mine to make a clock face. You can make your own clock face with this tutorial that explains how to measure your clock and put it on the clock.
