How-To Video: Hand-Stitched Cards

by Marie on September 1, 2009

These hand-stitched cards are simple and fun to make. I’ve been stitching them for quite a few years now and have shared many patterns in my Card Patterns category. Today I’ve taken a video of me stitching a Gift Box Greeting Card for you to see just how easy it is. You can follow right along.

Supplies: Everything is available at your local craft or fabric store.

  • Punching Awl
