I'll start by saying I love paper piecing. That said...it is NOT the technique to incorporate into a project you are mass producing! I freehanded this little guitar based on our guitar hero guitar. It's the only frame of reference I had LOL. I did simplify it greatly because #1 I was mass producing it and #2 I was cutting it relatively small. These little guitars are only 1.5 inches wide.
I started with the challenge at Fab n Funky Challenges. Using black and white and just one other color. My other color is red. The background sheet music paper was a digi image I printed out on white cardstock then matted with black cardstock to give it some weight. These are bookmarks for kids afterall! The sentiment is also computer printed from my word processing program. The ribbon is regular red grosgrain ribbon tied through a 3/16th eyelet.
