I am no stranger to paper piecing.... I recenlty (Several months ago) purchased some of Timmy's sizzix dies. The pictures shows a beautiful paper pieced image, but the die cuts out ONE image with portions that are connected, does that make sense? How in the heck do you paper piece these? what am I missing?

I've wondered that before. Do you have to cut out several images from different papers and then take bits from each?

Gwynn, Rosey is right. With these types of dies, you have to cut the whole thing out in several different papers. Then you cut and piece. Usually the places where you have to cut out the pieces are perforated. This is the way the old Sizzix dies worked too.

Can you use one for a base without anything cut, then make more in different papers, cut those and stick them onto the base layer with some of the base layer still showing through? Would that work?

Man that's difficult to explain. Do you see what I mean?

Gwynn, you would do it the same way you put together a paper piecing. Cut out the pieces and stick them to a base that you've cut out of another piece of cardstock. I usually use black or white, so that if the edges show, it creates a matted effect.
