I'll show you what I did to create a paper pieced Cupcake for a birthday layout:
1. First, I used my Expression, to cut a scalloped circle. You could also use a punch or try it with decorative edged scissors.
2. I cut a trapezoid shape from my patterned paper and then used my Expression once again, to cut a cloud shape.
3. Next, I used a small hole punch to punch out some circles.
4. Finally, just adhere it together and add in some pop dots for extra dimension. I also added a wood veneer star and two flags behind my cupcake.
And here is what the finished layout looks like:
