homemade christmas cards
YOU’LL NEED: UNBLEACHED COTTON CANVAS / PIECES OF A5 HANDMADE PAPER, FOLDED INTO CARDS / GOLD AND SILVER EMBROIDERY THREAD / GOLD SEWING THREAD / DOUBLE-SIDED ADHESIVE TAPE
HOW TO: Cut various shapes from cotton canvas, such as a moon, half moon and stars, to fit on the front of your cards. Attach the cotton shapes to paper with double-sided adhesive tape. Alternatively, you can stitch the shapes onto the paper using a sewing machine and gold thread or hand-stitch using gold or silver embroidery thread. You may like to add detail, such as a button or tiny ornament – be as creative as you like!
CHRISTMAS CARDS Cards with hand-stitched details, made from paper in neutral tones, add a lovely touch to gifts wrapped with twine.
