Make It Monday ~ Sew Pretty Circle Cards ~ 6/2/14

I've been wanting to try my hand at card-making.  I've always loved paper and had no trouble finding some scrapbook pads that I liked.  I just needed an idea.

I found that idea at .  Cards that used my love of paper AND sewing!


6 - 12 X 12 scrapbooking pages
glue (stick and craft)
rotary cutter
sewing machine

First, using a rotary cutter and ruler, cut each page in half.  Then cut off 3" from one end.  You will then cut the 3" strip into a 1.5" X 6" strip.

Fold the 6 X 9 pieces in half.  I used a large crochet hook to get a really good crease.

On 12 of the 1.5 X 3 strips, use a quarter to draw six circles on the back.  I don't have any fancy circle cutter but if you have one, go for it!

I then cut all the circles out.

Use the glue stick to tack down 6 circles across the remaining 12 1.5 X 3 strips.

After all that cutting and gluing, I took a moment to admire my work :)

 I then ran the strips through the sewing machine to sew the circles on the strips.

Pretty string of strips!

Next, glue the strips onto the cards.

This made 12 Sew Pretty Circle Cards.  They are blank inside and can be used for any occasion.

Do you have any other great ideas for card-making?  I had a blast :)
