Birthday Cake Paper-Piecing Pattern

Design by Vicki Boutin

Before Vicki cut out the layers for her cake piecing, she dry-embossed white-core pink cardstock. After she cut out the pieces, she lightly sanded the raised designs. For more delicate pieces, such as the cake stand, choose papers with a small-scale print so the pattern is visible.


SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Patterned papers: BoBunny Press (green dot, pink, aqua, yellow), Fancy Pants Designs (stripe). Embossing template: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft.

Balloon Paper-Piecing Pattern

Design by Janna Wilson

Janna used the same pattern for each of these balloons, but she cut one from patterned paper and the other from dry-embossed cardstock. She finished the balloons with a punched butterfly and strings.


SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper: Heidi Grace Designs. Punch, embossing plates: Fiskars

Birthday Cupcake Paper-Piecing Pattern

Design by Jodi Sanford

To mimic the corrugated look of a cupcake liner, Jodi ran the shape through a paper crimper before assembling the paper piecing. She added chalk to accentuate the ridges and cut small strips from contrasting cardstock to create stripes for her candle.


SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Chalk: ColorBox by Clearsnap. Paper crimper: Fiskars.

Birthday Gift Paper-Piecing Pattern

Design by Jodi Sanford

Enlarge or reduce the box pattern to create a birthday gift in any size. If you're making several gift paper-piecings, you could save time by using a punch or die-cutting tool to cut squares and rectangles, hand-cutting only the bow.

Birthday Hat Paper-Piecing Pattern

Design by Jodi Sanford

The pattern for the swirls shown on this party hat is provided. To give your hat a personal touch, use die cuts, punches, or freehand-drawn shapes. Jodi cut the scalloped hat edges from cardstock, but premade paper trim or decorative-edge scissors would be great time-savers.
