Saving Christmas Cards!
I'm lucky, in that every year I receive some handmade stitched Christmas cards. They are precious and I wanted to have them on display every year but without hanging them as cards.
So I decided to turn them into tree decorations.
I separated the stitched motif from the card.
Cut out 2 felt heart shapes.
Attached the motif to the heart, 'Blanket Stitched' the 2 hearts together and attached some beads and a hanging ribbon.
Here are some more of the finished ones.
With Valentine's Day fast approaching I'll be turning these into kits with a 'Love' theme. Keep an eye on the 'Craft Kits' page on the website or drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to know more.
