For one or two thousand reasons, sewing on paper does not come immediately to people's minds when they think of lugging out the sewing machine, or strangely enough, even when they think of making Christmas cards. What can I say - it's one of life's great mysteries - BUT this Instructable is going to change all that. From now on you will think paper.... sewing.... Christmas cards... sewing... you are getting very sleepy... your eyelids feel very heavy... when I snap my (virtual) fingers you will awake and think 'I want to sew a Christmas card'. *snap!*
Step 1: What You Will Need
2. A sewing machine
3. Scraps of fabric
4. Really sharp scissors (because really sharp scissors are one of life's great pleasures and besides that you deserve them.
5. Colorful thread
6. Stabilizer paper or tissue paper to place underneath your fabric while sewing
7. An iron
Step 2: Getting Started
I like the production aspect to sewing the cards, so I ripped 30 backgrounds, cut out 15 trees (the negative of the cut out tree is used also) and had them all stacked up with the stabilizer paper ready to sew.
