I recently discovered something new that I had not seen before: paper stitching/ paper embroidery!
Using this technique, I created two cards. One displays a butterfly with the word ‘fly’ underneath it, and the other one shows a present.
So, the idea behind paper stitching is that you ’embroider’ on it, only it’s paper. First, I took card stock, folded it to make a card, and laid it on a piece of spare cardboard. I drew a picture onto my card, then used a tack to punch holes into it. I erased the pencil marks. and using an embroidery needle and thread, stitched an image onto my card.
I think that paper stitching is an interesting art, but I’m pretty sure it’s not for me. If I need to make a card for someone, though, this will be my go-to method.
