St. Patrick's Day Stitching Card


After some experimenting, I came up with this card you can make at home, and send to a loved one. Older children could even make their own cards. Tip to make this easier: pre-punch the holes using an awl tool with something underneath so you don't damage your table. I use a small plastic cutting board, that I just use for crafting.

Supplies:

card stock

needle

embroidery floss (2 single strands for each color-or you can use more for a thicker effect)

black marker

gold/yellow buttons

black scrap paper

adhesive (glue stick or glue dots or mounting squares)

With a pencil draw a dotted line arch.

Carefully stitch each color of the rainbow, starting at the top and working down.

Attach the buttons.

Cut the black paper to form a 1/2 a circle. Attach to card.

Add words.

Write a message to the recipient about how grateful or lucky you are to have that person in your life :)
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
