For the next 3 days I am going to be sharing my handmade Mother's Day presents with you. Like I've said before, I wish I could share the presents I made before Mother's Day, but I don't want to ruin the surprise for my mom, who reads this blog.
Since my grandmas don't read my blog, I can share what they are getting.
I made this simple note card set for my grandma on my mom's side. She sends me little cards once in a while, so I thought she would like some new stationary.
They were so simple to make, but I think they are so charming.
I punched out hearts out of scrapbook paper and sewed them down directly to the card.
A couple tips for sewing them:
- Just like sewing with fabric, backstitching helps the thread not to come undone. I backstitched at the top of the first heart and bottom of the last heart.
- I used a ruler to draw a little chalk line on the paper so that when I was lining my hearts up to sew them down I had a guide to line them up perfectly.
I made two each of 3 designs - a total of six note cards in this little set.
If you like, you can fold the hearts up for a slight 3-d effect.
Package them up with some twine, and you have a lovely little Mother's Day (or any day) present!
