I had started with a whole different idea for this post and I even got half way through it, but I changed my mind. I just got the biggest urge to sew on paper, something I really love to do!
What happened was that I was looking through one of my craft drawers and doing a bit of organizing when I came across these gorgeous vintage-y chipboard die cuts. Aren’t they so pretty?
I instantly thought they would look lovely on a greeting card. And since they had a sewing theme, well I just had to stitch some up!
I kept it really simple by adding just a few extra details like a little bit of twine, a piece of vintage lace and some simple machine stitching.
Have you tried sewing on paper or chipboard before? It’s so fun! Paper is easy. Chipboard is just a bit more challenging. The trick to make it easier is to just take it slow. Oh and don’t worry about it looking perfect.
