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.
