Cross stitched notes

September 1, 2017

Paper crafts are my favorite. But paper crafts that include needle and thread embellishments … my absolute favorite. Cross stitch is versatile and so easy for creating designs.  This quick notecard occupied me on a recent rainy day and took just a few minutes of design effort.

My preference is to upcycle post consumer paper, in this case a tissue box folded backwards. Perfectly sturdy for prepunching the needle holes.

Finish it off with an inside fold of white paper. A large junk mail envelope works perfectly!

Tied at the center, it’s ready to carry a note in the most unique style.

I came upon some vintage cross stitch patterns in my late grandmother’s sewing box recently and can’t wait to try them in a new design!

Thanks for visiting. Please leave a message if you have a favorite cross stitch design you’d like to share.
