Make an… aperture card
Why not stitch all these designs and frame them as a mini picture set that would make a great gift for a dog-loving friend?
Step 1 WORK
using two strands of stranded cotton for the cross stitch and one strand for the backstitch.
Step 2 TRIM
the stitched fabric to fit your card, with the design centrally placed behind the card’s aperture.
Step 3 ATTACH
double-sided tape to the inside of the card around the edge of the aperture.
Step 4 PLACE
the stitching on the table right-side up, and then place the card on top, pressing down firmly on the tape.
Step 5 CHECK
which flap will fold onto the back of the stitching, then add strips of double-sided tape and press firmly down to secure.
