Embroidery is said to be an activity that rests your mind, so here's a great way to combine usefulness with delight, making embroidered Christmas cards. This activity is a relaxing way to prepare for the rush of gifts and of course, a unique and personalized way to wish your loved ones a happy Holidays.
You will need:
Thick A4 paper, embroidery needle, sewing needle, embroidery thread in your favorite color.
Download and print our pattern.
Cut your A4 paper sheet in half on the long side, then fold it in half as a greeting card. Place the first shape in our pattern on the front of the card and use the sewing needle to create small holes matching every dot.
Once you have pierced all the dots in the pattern, make a knot on the thread and use your needle to embroider from number 1 to number 2 and so on.
Keep following the numbers in the pattern until you reach the end, then close the embroidery with another knot.
Cut the remaining paper in half to get another A5 sheet that will be glued on the back of the embroidery to cover it.
