I am an avid English Paper Piecer! I used to cut my own papers from freezer paper and thread baste. I am discovering that glue basting is so much faster. Now, I have been spoilt with hexagons as I have two Fiskars paper punches which I use for templates. I cut through four layers of paper at a time with them and the pile mounts up pretty quickly. Last night I wanted to make papers for an elongated hexagon. I grabbed my supplies and started tracing away. One at a time. I cut out a row and just wanted to scream - SO SLOW! So I sat and thought about this problem for a while and came up with a solution which works like a dream. You could use freezer paper like I have or any paper really. So gather your supplies and let us cut some papers. You will need your template, a pencil, scissors, stapler and of course your paper - lots of it because this is quick!
