Shavuos Felt Card With Embroidery
Mommy’s Creation: My first
attempt at embroidery on paper, lots of fun!

I sat down the other day and did an impromptu art project together
with two of my kids! And of course I’m happy to share the results with
you, since this is a great project for all ages and abilities. I cut
out lots of petal shaped felt pieces and provided the kids with folded
cards, glue, a box of buttons and some yarn.

Add your kid’s picture and you have a great Mother’s Day Card!

Here’s what they came up
with:

Shavuos Cards Kids versions

Aren’t these just the cutest? My almost 8 yr old daughter did the
one on the left, and my almost 5 yr old son did the one on the right. I
just love seeing their personalities reflected in their art!

You’ll Need:

  • felt
  • buttons
  • yarn
  • thick needle with eye big enough for yarn
  • card stock

Shavuos Cards In Process

How To:

Pretty self explanatory, just some notes about the embroidery:

  1. When embroidering on paper, unlike fabric there is no room for
    making mistakes since a hole is a hole!
  2. So plan ahead and make your holes before you start embroidering.
    Also, you really can’t see what you’re doing from the back, so there’s
    no way to know where to come up through the paper with your needle
    unless you’ve either made holes or marked them with
    indentations.
  3. I used both yarn (green) and embroidery floss (orange) and I love
    the contrast between the two weights.
  4. With embroidered cards you’ll want to work on a flat piece of card
    stock (or two pieces, like mine, namely a white square glued onto a
    pink square) and then glue your artwork to the card after you’ve
    completed the embroidery. Because the embroidered card had some
    dimension it can’t lie flat, (which is actually a plus!) so I used hot
    glue to affix it to the card.

Enjoy, and keep in touch!
