Simple Handmade Cards using your scraps!! u-createcrafts.com

I love simple.

I love making handmade cards.

I grabbed some felt scraps, cut out a simple heart, stitched around the edge, and simple “I love you” cards…

I made these b-day cards by simply cutting small triangles using my fabric scraps and making a little banner…

  1. These are great!
    Did you first attach the fabric pieces and then hand stitch on top of the card?

  2. Oops, I left that part out. I just used a little glue stick to adhere them down and then I stitched them together. I made them two big batches of cards in one hour! super easy.

  6. Making cards is on my to-do list! I figure if I just sit and make a bunch at one time then I should have some on hand when I need them!

  8. How simple! I think sometimes our creativity gets held back by sticking with one medium. I love how you combined two (fabric and paper). Something to always keep in mind.

  15. thanks Linds! The letters are actually "rub-ons" I found hiding in my stash from 10 years ago! I think using your own handwriting would be fun, too!

  21. LOVE those banner cards! Do you use a special sewing needle for this? Doesn't the paper dull your sewing needle? I SO want to do this for a card set as a gift. Just wondering if I need to label some needles ONLY for sewing on paper. Thanks in advance!
