Actually, it's my second attempt and my first finished card. Sew and the City suggested putting little dabs of glue on the back of the fabric to adhere the fabric to the cardboard so it didn't move when sewing. I omitted this step in my first attempt and of course, the fabric moved and puckered. I won't show you that attempt.
I decided to use double sided fusible webbing instead of glue and it worked like a charm. This card was so easy to make. Here's how I did it.
Fuse the Christmas tree to cardboard:
- Fuse the Christmas tree to the cardboard using double sided fusible webbing and following the manufacturer's instructions.
- Use an old cloth so glue doesn't get on the iron or the ironing board and to stop the cardboard from burning.
- Use a low setting on the iron so the cardboard doesn't burn.
What a lovely idea...I hope your family remembers to be surprised.ReplyDelete
