Hello Friends. Just sharing a little gift idea and card making today. I am obsessed with wood cuts. I love the natural element and versatility they bring to my crafting projects. I hope you will try this idea. I don’t feel like a picture does the cuteness any justice. This project doesn’t take long and the time is worth the results. Adding the miniature garland is the perfect pop of color to bring this plant to life:)
Supplies used | Wood cuts available in my shop | wood skewers | dk pink, lt pink, peach and gold tissue paper | sewing machine and thread |glue gun | friend greeting from hey hi hello stamp set
Step 1. Glue two wood skewers behind the hello woodcut
Step 2. Cut 2×3 inch strips of tissue paper in each color. Fold to 1×3 strips and cut open end to create fringe, I used the martha stewart fringe scissor ( a must have in my crafting supplies) Roll each piece up in a coil to create a small fringe pom.
Step 3. These are very tiny but you will then feed them through your sewing machine to create a little banner.
Step 4. Glue the ends of the banner to the bottom of the hello – where it meets the skewers.
SStep 5. Stick in your plant and you have a little piece of adorable.
The card is super easy too. I downloaded the cutfile. Available in my shop. I cut on white American Crafts textured cardstock. (in my opinion the best cardstock for the silhouette) love it!! I cut a standard card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and stitched randomly in 4 different color using the sewing machine to create a colorful background for the happy birthday words. Stiched the diecut piece over the top and you have a unique and handmade card for a deserving friend. I will note that the sewing wasn’t super fast but worth the look for sure! If you haven’t tried this sewing technique before. Don’t be afraid, It’s fun and before you know it you will be sewing on everything you can find.
Have a lovely day and do something creative. XOXO, Amy
